Dr Louise McGuigan
Clinical Director | BDS
Special Interest in Cosmetic Dentistry
GDC NO. 252017
Dr Louise McGuigan qualified in 2014 from Queen’s University Belfast with a distinction in the practice of dentistry.
After completing her foundation training year, she moved to Gransha Dental (our founding sister company) in 2015 to set up her roots working alongside her father the principal dentist.
‘Gransha felt like home. I had been running in and out of the surgery since I was a toddler in 1992. In 2018, I took over the practice after my dad passed away and through my grief, it was incredibly special to be able to follow in my dad’s footsteps and continue to build on his incredible legacy and grow the practice. The practice moved from strength to strength and with that in mind, I decided to expand this legacy and create a brand new practice, not just any practice – something unique and unseen before in Northern Ireland. After much meticulous planning, came Epic Dental based in Lisburn City Centre.Read More

GDC NO 309228
We are thrilled and excited to have the wonderful Dr Ariadna Colom at Epic Dental, bringing joy, fun and a sensational orthodontic expertise to our incredible clinic.
Dr Ariadna Colom graduated from Barcelona and worked as a general dentist in Spain following this. In 2020 Ariadna earned a prestigious place onto her full time orthodontic training program at the international university of Catalonia in Barcelona.
She won the prize for the best clinical case presentation at the Spanish Society of Orthodontics, which is an outstanding achievement.
Ariadna trained with the reknowned DR Federico Hernandez Alfaro, a highly recognised maxillofacial surgeon and has extensive experience in Invisalign and the use of TADS, mini implants in moving teeth with the best predictability and least invasive techniques.
Dr colom is passionate about treating smiles both cosmetically and functionally. It is so vital to Ariadna that the teeth not only look amazing but they give that person the best possible functionality and whole body well being too, as the teeth and their alignment are crucial to many things such as our breathing and sleeping habits.
She uses a variety of techniques from invisible aligners to traditional ‘braces’ and performs many techniques which are superior and uncommonly used within the historic confines of lesser expertly trained orthodontists.
She is also an expert in tooth autotransplantation, like Dr Lucas-Taulé meaning that Epic Dental is extremely fortunate and excited to have these two professionals working together on such important and aesthetically driven cases.
