Tooth implant dentist Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Scotland
Dr Colin Gardner
Dr Colin Gardner has a keen interest in advanced restorative dentistry including teeth implants, and all forms of cosmetic dentistry. The in-depth, thorough examinations and preventative advice he provides are unhurried and meticulous. It is extremely important to him that every patient is fully informed of their options before they make a decision about which treatment to have.
Colin keeps up to date with current thinking and the most modern techniques available within the profession, regularly attending postgraduate courses all over the UK. In the past few years Dr Gardner has achieved a very high success rate of 99% using three different implant systems. This accomplishment includes treatments such as single implants, implant- supported bridges and teeth in a day as well as full arch restoration.
Dr Gardner graduated from Dundee University Dental Hospital and School in 1988. Since then he has worked almost exclusively in Glasgow’s West End.
For patients enquiring about implant treatment via this website, Dr Gardner offers a free preliminary consultation with an experienced team member. This appointment does not include a clinical examination and it takes approximately 30 minutes. 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.

At the outset Colin explained in great detail why he was recommending this treatment and what was involved in the procedure. At each stage I was kept fully informed of what was to happen. Throughout Colin and his staff were most professional in their dealings with me."

Implant case referral policies, procedures and administration
To refer a patient, please use the button in the right hand column. Alternatively, complete the online referral form on our practice website or contact us to obtain a PDF copy.
If you are completely new to implants we can arrange a lunch and learn with one hour’s free verifiable CPD as an introduction.
We also offer a 3 hour verifiable CPD session with a live demonstration of the restorative stages and the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the components involved and practise taking impressions on an implant model.
In partnership with our implant supplier, you will receive a free restorative kit when your first referred patient is ready for impressions. Colin will come to your practice, free of charge, to mentor you through your first case and will be available for help and advice over the phone or by email. He can also attend for future cases if required, on a sessional rate.
You are welcome to attend for any of the appointments involving treatment planning and placement of the implant(s).
We will complete an inter-operator agreement which clearly states who is responsible for the different aspects of treatment avoiding any confusion for the patient or clinicians. Please be assured we will never approach nor accept your patient for non-referred treatment.
