UCC Heroes: Dental School & Hospital’s Dental Nurses in Restorative Dentistry

In this initiative we honour those UCC Heroes who have made an exceptional, if hidden contribution to the university community during COVID-19.

Professor Anthony RobertsDr Frank Burke and Dr Graham Quilligan have nominated the Dental School and Hosptial's Dental Nurses in Restorative Dentistry as UCC Heroes. 


“’Stars can’t shine without darkness’… and through the darkness of COVID, the stars who are the Dental Nurses in Restorative Dentistry have been shining. Stepping up to three-session days, and endlessly changing COVID and PPE protocols, they have gone above and beyond to answer the call of staff, students and patients alike. ‘Thank you’ just doesn’t seem enough; rest assured that the staff, students and patients are VERY, VERY grateful.”
