Introducing Dr John Maguire (prefers Sean) our Principal Dentist.


John specialises in root canal treatment and has just completed his Endodontic Masters after 4 years of studying. John enjoys making patients feel relaxed and trying to remove the stigma that root canal treatments can be painful and are not successful – because they are very successful and should be completely pain-free!

John began working in 2006 in Castleford where he went on to spend 11 enjoyable years at Armstrong and Haire. He went on to become a foundation dentist trainer, which involved training new graduate dentists and then became the joint owner of Pontefract Dental Care.


John was a keen rugby player for 12 years at Sandal Rugby Club in Wakefield. He retired in 2018 and recently became the proud Dad of identical twin girls.

FIZZY IS NOT FRIENDLY!!

Fizzy drinks are the major sugar source for children from the age of 11-18 and one of the main causes of tooth decay. A common misconception is that sugar-free fizzy drinks are also not harmful to your teeth….this is in fact incorrect. Sugar-free fizzy drinks are still acidic and can cause erosion leading to tooth decay.

Try to cut out your fizzy drinks or enjoy them in moderation!! One or two per week is a safe amount.

For some great tips on helping to reduce your own or your child’s sugar intake, visit www.nhs.uk/change4life/food-facts/sugar
