Dr David Curran
"Originally from Northern Ireland, I graduated from the University of Bristol in 2019 and since then have worked in General Practice both in Gloucester and in Londonderry.
I am confident in all areas of general dentistry and enjoy the varied workday this brings. I particularly value building trusting relationships with my patients. I encourage a relaxed atmosphere in the surgery to help patients feel at ease and enjoy working together to achieve and maintain a happy and healthy smile.
Over many visits to Jersey, I have fallen in love with the island and look forward to becoming part of the community, both in and out of work. When I am not helping my patients, I enjoy exploring the natural beauty and history of all corners of the island and spending time with animals."
