AN IRISH DENTIST has won the award for Caring Dentist of the Year after he helped a woman who had broken her tooth in a domestic violence incident.

Dr Pádraig O’Reachtagáin, from Co. Tipperary, fixed the woman’s tooth before showing her a way for her and her children to get out of their abusive situation.

The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, says that Dr O’Reachtagáin opened his practice up on Castle Street Dental Practice in Roscrea on a Saturday to treat her, despite the fact the dentist was normally closed.

“He was caring, compassionate, and also advised me on the avenues I could go down to get myself and my children into a much safer environment,” she said.
