After Nicola achieved her Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 1988 from Cardiff University, Nicola moved from her hometown of Bridgend to Cardiff to work in various locations including Morriston, Aberdare, Mountain Ash and Tonypandy. In 1995, Nicola took over City Road Dental, situated on City Road. Relocating to number 2 West Grove in 2007, since moving to the larger premises, the practice has continued to grow. Originally just a team of five, they now boast a predominately female team of twelve (with the exception of associate dentist Ben and hygienist Jamie).
Nicola and the team have a professional, friendly and approachable manner and are always available to listen and help with concerns or queries you may have.
Nicola has a special interest in treating those with dental phobia. Nicola has treated many phobic patients over the years, helping them overcome their fears, enabling them to return for future appointments without experiencing anxiety. Nicola Taaffe is Dental Phobia Certified. Click here to verify.
Ben has a keen interest in Dental Implantology and surgical extractions of teeth, working with us here at the practice once a week.
All members of the team are registered with the General Dental Council (GDC) and the British Dental Association (BDA) or studying an accredited training course, working towards gaining their registration.
With many of Nicola Taaffe’s team having worked alongside her since the practice’s beginnings, the team have always maintained a personal and friendly service, while the practice has steadily expanded.
