Originally from Co Kildare, Elaine moved over to Scotland to complete her dental degree. Elaine graduated from the University of Dundee in 2015. She then moved to Edinburgh to complete a one year vocational training programme. After this she remained working for the National Health Service in Edinburgh before moving back to Ireland in July 2017.
Upon moving back to Ireland, Elaine worked in a private practice in Dublin. She began working in Ryebank House, Maynooth in May 2018.
Elaine frequently attends courses and conferences to stay up to date and further her skills – most recently she has started to provide short term orthodontics with the Inman aligner and clear aligners.
Elaine provides general dental care for adults and children – including composite fillings, root canal treatments, crowns and bridges and extractions. She believes in minimally invasive dentistry such as composite bonding to improve the patients smile.
Outside of work, Elaine likes to travel. She is also a keen baker.

Originally from Kerry, Amanda worked in her father’s dental clinic as a dental assistant. She enjoyed dental life so much that it led her to choose a career in dentistry, and she graduated from University College Cork in 2022.

Amanda enjoys all aspects of general dentistry, in particular building relationships with patients, putting anxious patients at ease & helping all who attend gain confidence in & control of their dental health.

Her main aim is to provide positive & comfortable dental experiences for all her patients here at Boyne dental.


Outside of dentistry, Amanda loves hiking & travelling. She’s also an accomplished baker, and we’re always especially happy to see her arriving to work with a cake tin full of treats in her hands!!


Diana joined the Boyne Dental Team in 2017 after qualifying as a dental nurse from Trinity College Dublin in 2017. Her warmth and enthusiasm made her the perfect fit for Boyne Dental, and we’ve been  thrilled to see her grow and develop her skills within the company.

Always eager to help out in whatever way she can, Diana took on some extra administrative duties in our central office hub. This brought about her interest in the management side of dentistry, so she enrolled in a college course in management to continue to develop her career. This has led her to take the opportunity to become the new practice manager in Boyne Dental Maynooth, where she will be responsible for both taking care of all our patients in her usual caring and compassionate way, and overseeing the exciting transition to our brand new premises in the summer

In her spare time away from work, Diana enjoys spending time with family and friends, and loves to travel whenever she gets the chance.

Anne qualified as a Dental Nurse in Dublin Dental School. She has many years of experience having worked in the Dental Hospital, specialist private practice and as a dental health promoter with a dental products company.

In her spare time Anne enjoys cycling, running and travelling.

Aoife has worked with us here in Boyne Dental since November 2022. Working on reception with our Maynooth team, she takes great pride in assisting our patients from the moment they enter the clinic door, till their departure. And always with a welcoming smile!

Aoife is currently looking to study either medicine or dentistry in Dublin and has applied for academic scholarships such as the UCD Ad Astra scholarship. Aoife constantly seeks to learn more and more each day. Often when she gets the chance, Aoife can be found catching a few expert tips and facts from our dentists and nurses in the clinic about the medical field. However most often, she receives her advice from the great experiences and life lessons of our patients!

Away from the Maynooth reception desk, Aoife enjoys spending her free time with her friends and family, swimming, playing guitar, singing, baking and most importantly getting out in nature with her cockapoo Fudge!
