Free Preliminary Consultation
For patients considering implant treatment, Dr Friel offers a free preliminary consultation. This appointment does not include a clinical examination and it takes 30 minutes.
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 short 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. This includes a comprehensive oral examination and production of a fully-costed individual plan for your treatment.

”I am delighted with my new implant. Following a root fracture, I was devastated at the thought of losing a tooth. I can, however, now testify to having undergone this treatment pain and anxiety free. So much so, I hadn't realised the initial implant placement had taken place.”
“Quite simply, my decision to have implants done by Jillian Clare at Philip Friel dental surgery is one of the best I have ever taken. The final result is completely convincing and aesthetically exactly what I envisaged. The treatment throughout the process was clearly state-of-the-art and absolutely meticulous.”
Philip Friel is joined in his practice by another dentist experienced in the field of dental implant treatment. Glasgow University graduate Jillian Clare (GDC No 75914) has been placing and restoring implants for more than 10 years.

Implant case referral policies, procedures and administration
All referral types are welcomed. Referring dentists are kept fully informed of planning, options and progress of treatment.
We work closely with and mentor GDPs who wish to incrementally introduce dental implantology into their treatment offering. This is by prior arrangement and such mentoring includes treatment planning, extraction techniques, grafting to maintain bone following extraction and the restoration of dental implants.
The clinic works closely with referring dentists who wish to learn more about dental implant treatments with a view to being able to offer these treatments themselves, following completion of appropriate training. We offer mentoring services and regularly run introductory courses in the clinic.
“Phil's dentistry is of the highest possible standards and I trust him impeccably with my teeth. Phil has carried out complex implant treatment on myself and all procedures were completely painless with minimum post-operative discomfort. I thoroughly recommend Philip Friel for dentistry.”
Dr Cathy Sinclair, Barnhill Dental Practice in Broughy Ferry, (referring dentist and patient)
“The results of my treatment speak for themselves, my initial hopes were to have a smile that was natural, I didn't want to appear as if I'd had my teeth done...
As a dentist myself I was always going to be hard to please, but the care and attention to detail that both Dr Friel and his technician put in to ensure the final results humbled me...”
Dr David Bell, Ireland, (referring dentist and patient)
