Galway Bay fm newsroom – The Dental Council says it received as much correspondence in two weeks over the withdrawal of services by an Oranmore Orthodontist as it would normally receive in three years.

It’s after Dr. Ann Hahessy abruptly ceased services after issuing text messages to hundreds of patients and their families.

The Dental Council of Ireland has confirmed that in an order of the High Court, Dr. Hahessy undertook not to engage in the practice of dentistry until an investigation was concluded.

David O’ Flynn says the issue of patients having difficulty accessing files highlights a weakness in dentistry regulations.
