Originally from the west of Ireland Dr Rachel O'Connor joined the Maven team in 2019. Dr Rachel graduated in 2009 from Trinity College Dublin and spent the next 5 years working in private practice in Ireland. During this time she gained experience in all aspects of dentistry including Orthodontics and placement of permanent bonded retainers.
Dr Rachel is an extremely gentle dentist with a knack for calming nervous patients and is also great with children. With this, she has a keen interest in Paediatric dentistry after working for a year in the Irish public health system exclusively treating children.
Dr Rachel became a member of the Rcsed in 2013 after completing MJDf and MFDS examinations. In 2015, Rachel relocated to Cairns where she continued to work in private practice offering a wide range of dental treatments.
