What Our Patients Say
“I have recently undergone the placement of two dental implants from Fergus. The care and commitment Fergus has shown me has been exceptional. From my initial consultation appointment with Fergus through to his personal aftercare post-surgery was second to none. I truly have gained a new found confidence in my smile and self-esteem following the initial trauma of losing my two teeth.”
“Very professional and friendly staff. With Mrs Weir I lost my life-long fear of dentists”.
“The level of service that Fergus and his team provided exceeded expectations. This is a fantastic practice with a extremely high level of patient care."
“I have lost count of the number of dentists I have seen over the years, all of whom made me feel uncomfortable and more self-conscious about my smile. That was until I visited Mrs Weir and her team. The whole experience from start to finish has been such a positive one.”
"The toys are great and I always get a sticker if I let the dentist see my teeth”
