David is now Director of the Northern Ireland Division of the Faculty of the Royal College of Surgeons England and is the youngest ever director of this at the age of 32.

In 2012 David set up Boyne Dental & Implant Clinic initially as a squat practice and this has progressed into a bespoke 5 surgery practice in the Old Courthouse building in Navan town centre.  Boyne Dental and Implant Clinic was voted Best New Dental Practice in Ireland 2016.  David’s most recent accolade was winning the prestigious Rising Star in Dentistry on the Island of Ireland at the Irish Dental Awards 2017.

In 2016 David spoke at events on both Implant Dentistry and the Business of Dentistry across Ireland and the UK.  He has been mentoring local practitioners within the Implant field for over 5 years.  David has published numerous clinical case reports in dental journals and magazines from Ireland and the United Kingdom.

From September 2018 – May 2019, David in association with BioHorizons, took 6 dentists under his wing and trained them in all things Implants as part of the Year Long Implant Course. The training was a huge success with each dentist on the course now placing Implants in their own clinics.

As evidence of the commitment to clinical excellence Boyne Dental & Implant Clinic has invested in a Sirona CBCT scanner (for which David is a Key Opinion Leader in Ireland) to aid implant treatment planning and accepts referrals from practices North and South of Ireland.

Associate Dentist- Special Interest: Implants and Invisalign

(IDC No. 8614)

Kindness and compassion are central to the dental care that Dr. David McGibney provides for each and every patient.

David qualified as a dentist with honours from University College Cork in 2013. He first qualified as a pharmacist in 2004 but soon realised that his true passion lay in the field of dentistry.

Following graduation, David moved to the UK where he worked within both the National Health Service and private practice, gaining a huge range of experience, before moving home in 2019. Since moving home he has worked at Boyne Dental, first in our Navan clinic, and then full time in Dunshaughlin when it opened.

David feels very passionately about providing excellent dental treatment in a kind and compassionate way. He frames his approach to dental treatment very much around the hopes and expectations of each individual patient, and firmly believes in centrally involving his patient in the treatment planning process. David and his team strive to understand each patient’s feelings towards dental treatment and shape their treatment journey in a way that respects this.

Since qualifying, he has continually sought to advance his skills and completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Restorative Dentistry in 2015 followed by a Diploma in this same field in 2022. David is also currently studying for a Diploma in Advanced Implant Dentistry.

David provides all forms of general dentistry but has a special interest in the areas of Implant Dentistry and Invisalign.

For David, Invisalign is an incredibly powerful tool that can produce life changing improvements to a smile.

Dental implants can be equally powerful in terms of restoring a patient’s ability to smile and enjoy life to the fullest and he greatly enjoys using these skills to enhance his patient’s quality of life.
