Research Profile

Siobhan Lucey


Following graduation from Cork University Dental School and Hospital in 2007, I moved further afield to Scotland, where I completed Vocational Training within general dental practice and Dental Foundation Training within the community and hospital dental services. I spent a further year in a Senior House Officer role before embarking on a 3 year specialist training programme in Paediatric Dentistry in the Edinburgh Dental Institute. During this time, I obtained an MClinDent degree, which incorporated a research dissertation. Based on this work, I was awarded the Young Researcher of the Year Award by the British Society of Paediatric Dentistry in 2012. I obtained my Membership in Paediatric Dentistry from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 2013.

Since then, I have spent 4 years working in specialist practice as a paediatric dentist in Dublin and Cork, before taking up my current post as a Specialist Lecturer in Paediatric Dentistry in the Cork University Dental School and Hospital in early 2018. I am interested in the prevention of caries (tooth decay) in young children, and, in particular, the social factors which may influence the development of this condition.
