“I got many fillings and one Root Canal Treatment done at this dental practice and my fear of the dentist vanished after the first appointment. My Dentist was excellent in making me comfortable as well as doing the treatment during all my visits. They are an expert at their work and all the fillings and RCT was done painfree. (really gentle dental). None of the fillings came off. Also, the reception talk to you in a very good and welcoming manner. They are very helpful over the phone also (for making appointments). They also has a service in which they remind you of your appointment a day before.” December 2012

“I had not visited a dentist since I moved to this area several years ago. I was due to have open-heart surgery and it is necessary for the hospital to have an up to date report from a dentist. I visited this practice and was given an appointment for two days hence. I was examined by the Principal Dentist and recommended treatment. I agreed and was given an appointment for one week later. The treatment was carried out by the Principal and further work done by the Hygienist. Two weeks later, dentists at the Heart Hospital confirmed that excellent treatment had been given. I have since had two routine checks, one involving further Hyienist work and one requiring no treatment.” December 2012

“I have been having treatment at Gentle Dental Care for about 12 years, before this I was petrified of the dentist ! ever since I was a child I use to dread it, coming here has changed my view completely, Brenda is so lovely and puts you at ease at all times and the staff are so lovely and welcoming. Brenda has also seen me out of hours when I had a huge abscess ! at nearly midnight ! I cannot praise the staff enough, it has changed my view and my teeth ! I would probably not go to the dentist if I hadn’t had this practice recommended to me………… Thank you to Brenda & The Staff” August 2011

“This is a lovely practice which has recently been refurbished to a very high standard. It is extremely clean and hygienic and has excellent facilities throughout. It is light and airy and very welcoming.

Craig McNish is my dentist. He is extremely thorough and professional and always explains what he is doing every step of the way. This is really important to me as I have always been quite an anxious patient, and puts me at ease. I would highly recommend him.

The hygienist team have always been excellent and do a fantastic job. I am grateful that an oral condition was identified by this practice soon after I joined which resulted in a hospital referral. This was reassuring and I received the appropriate help which I needed. My previous practice had not picked this up. I was taught how to floss and brush properly and shown the importance of oral hygiene, which is especially important for me with my condition. This had also not been done by the other practice. Lyn is my hygienist, and she is lovely and does a very good job of helping me look after my teeth and gums.

Last but not least, the reception staff are always helpful and friendly and I like the fact they give me a courtesy call 24 hours before my appointment.

So although I always have a bit of anxiety, it is greatly reduced now coming to this practice.I would highly recommend it, and would not go anywhere else!” August 2011

“I have been a patient under Dr Brenda MacMillan at Gentle Dental Care for 12 years. Brenda is a very kind, friendly, understanding and efficient dentist. She always explains everything to me before carrying out the treatment, which makes me feel more at ease! She is the best dentist I have ever had in my life.

All her staff at the surgery are very approachable and helpful, especially Sue. The surgery is very clean and well equipped and has a lovely, relaxing atmosphere!” September 2011

“I am writing to say thank you for the high level of care I received when I needed a crown and root canal treatment. I appreciate the fact that I was given an appointment at short notice. I am grateful to the work colleague who recommended your practice and I feel fortunate to be able to continue to receive treatment at such a welcoming and professional dental practice where patient care is a top priority.” September 2011

“I have been visiting this practice for 0ver 12 years, the staff are friendly,and brenda is wonderful, making the whole experience a pleasure rather than a chore.

I would highly recommend them to anybody with a phobia of dentists as this practice is completely different…..

Thank you to everybody at Gentle Dental Care” August 2011
