Dr. Peter Cowan has been in practice since 1980. The practice itself has been in existence for over 120 years through four generations of the Cowan family and is possibly unique in this regard. Located in the heart of Dublin 4, the practice moved in 2006 from Merrion Road, where it had been based from 1969 and prior to this from Harcourt Street, where it was originally based after the turn of the twentieth century.

The practice is happy to accept private patients through referral from either colleagues or existing patients. A wide range of restorative and surgical treatments are available at the highest level along with a hygienist service. It is a policy of the practice to arrange recalls of patients on a regular basis to ensure continuity of care.

Normal opening hours Monday 09.00-14.00; Tuesday-Friday 08.00-14.00
