Patient consultations

Patients just beginning to think about dental implant treatment may find it helpful to attend a complimentary preliminary consultation with clinical manager Karen, an experienced dental nurse.  The discussion will help you consider the options for treating your dental problems and decide whether to proceed to a clinical consultation for implants.  The preliminary consultation is free of charge for visitors enquiring through this website.  Please use the button in the right hand column to request an appointment.

Once you have decided in principle that you want implant treatment, the next step is a clinical consultation with Dr Ralston.  This includes a comprehensive oral examination, and results in production of a fully-costed individual plan for your treatment.  The fee for the clinical assessment appointment and provision of your personal treatment plan is £95, including an OPG (a large X-ray).

My implant teeth

I am now very healthy, active and confident

"Four years ago, my husband, Tony needed a wisdom tooth extraction. That same day, Tony asked Duncan if he would examine me, because the family had noticed that my general health was not good, nothing specific, but I was unable to shake off minor ailments quickly, as if there was some underlying problem. In due course, five implants were installed; this process was very successful and my new teeth were then installed after which I felt and looked better than I have for years. Throughout my treatment, Duncan emphasized hygiene and cleanliness which I took on board. I would go as far as to say, that I think Duncan has saved my life, I am now very healthy, active and confident."

Patient testimonials

"Since Duncan became my dentist, matters have changed considerably.  I have had four bridges and three implants, which has meant that for the first time in my life I now have the full complement of teeth and not one ounce of trouble.  I would recommend Duncan to anyone especially if you need dental implants, mine are fabulous."

"I write this letter to espress my thanks and appreciation to you for giving me my speech, taste and confidence to smile again back.  For the first time in 30 years I can now bite into an apple and taste the food I am eating."
