Dr Steve Tangney

Steve moved from his native Ireland to Australia in 2011. After several years in Queensland, where he met his lovely wife, Chloe, they decided to take the plunge into ownership and set up in Batemans Bay in late 2017. Chloe and Steve have a beautiful baby girl, Orla, and are relishing being so close to Chloe's family after spending most of the last 6 years in south east Queensland. 

Steve has played soccer semi professionally in Australia and now togs out for Clyde United. He can be found bush walking, snorkelling, golfing, changing nappies and cooking beef & guinness pies.

Steve qualified in 2008 with honours from UCC, Ireland. He landed a job at Parrock Street Dental Care, where he practised for 3 years, earning a Cert in Aesthetic Dentistry in 2011 during his residency in London. He was recommended for the UK Young Dentist of the Year Award in 2010. He has considerable experience in digital dentistry. Steve has lectured in Ireland, and more recently for the Australian Graduate of the Year Residency which takes 6 of the best Australian graduates and hones their skills and knowledge for private practice through their 4 day mini residency program. When the expansion of our Batemans Bay clinic is completed in 14 months, the practice will be fully digital and have 3 more treatment rooms. If you are an associate dentist or Hygienist/OHT who would like to join our growing fun practice, there will be great long term positions available in the near future. An option exists to join the practice as another principal dentist.
