David qualified as a dentist in UCC in 1990. He spent his early years in London doing hospital oral and maxillofacial surgery in Whitechapel, Great Ormond Street, University College Hospital, and the Eastman Dental Institute. He trained as an orthodontist in Cork Dental Hospital, and qualified in orthodontics to hospital consultant level in Manchester in 1999.
