Dr Marie Sharkey

BDS Newcastle University 2011

Dentist with a special interest in Periodontology

GDC Number: 210207

Marie qualified as a dentist in 2011 from Newcastle University, it was during her time in the North East that she met Dan and Leesa. Dan and Marie were in the same year at dental school, while Leesa and Marie met on day one of their foundation training year. Despite Dan and Leesa relocating to the South West and Marie returning to her native Northern Ireland a strong friendship still endures.

Marie’s postgraduate area of interest is periodontology; this field has grown to encompass the treatment of disease in the supporting tissues surrounding dental implants in addition to the treatment of gum disease associated with teeth. She is currently undertaking a Masters in Clinical periodontology at UCLan and is a member of the British Society of Periodontology. Marie committed to developing treatment plans with her patients that focus on the treatment of dental disease and she never underestimates the importance of the patient’s role in achieving the ultimate goal of having a healthy, stable, pain free mouth.

Outside of work Marie enjoys travelling, good food and has recently started to spend more time in the garden but requires more practice to develop those longed-for green fingers.
