      Homeless Kindness

      While winter months prove to be difficult at times for those of us lucky enough to be able to access health services, it has been a particularly challenging time for the homeless community.⁠ This is why our Managing Partner, Mark Skimming, decided to step in and help out.

      After reading about the outstanding work of Laura McSorley, who started the Glasgow-based Kindness Homeless Street Team in 2019, Mark spoke to our team members and we decided straight away that we wanted to offer some help.

      It is heartbreaking that so many people are going without essential health care. Oral hygiene is such an important part of our overall well-being.

      We really want to be respectful to everyone involved in this collaboration and Laura has taken the lead in terms of giving us⁠ background information and explaining how best we can use our own skills and resources.⁠ Above oral and dental care, of course, we know that how our smiles appear is also a huge part of our confidence and self-esteem.

      We sincerely hope that by stepping in and providing dental services for the Kindness Homeless Street Team we can really make a difference.

      I always feel looked after and more importantly experience a level of detailed examination and subsequent treatment that assures I get what’s needed. As someone who’s scared of dentists, they remove the fear. Thank you.

      My dental health is so, so much better now than before I started attending the Links Dental Practice. The staff are very kind and careful about the treatment and always seem to be on time for appointments. I can't rate them more highly. All

      As always, impeccable service, not just in terms of the actual treatment but with a friendly and efficient reception staff. I've lived long enough to have had some pretty dire early encounters with Scottish dentistry, so this quality of experience, delivered with patience and with highly professional standards is much appreciated.

      I had my first 2 fillings this week with dentist Sam Lockhart. I was worried they would hurt as I've never had any procedures done - I can honestly say there was zero pain and it was a great experience. I'll never be worried about dental work again. Thank you!

      I've only had 2 courses of treatment so far from Jasmine but have found her to be friendly, efficient and informative. She conducts her business very professionally but with a very good 'bedside manner', thus making the patient feel relaxed and confident. A very positive experience so far with my new dentist - keep up the good work!I originally posted the above about a year ago but can now confirm (having had several courses of treatment) that Jasmine has lived up to my expectations and initial assessment. She is a very good dentist, has a great reassuring manner and I have great respect for her. Jasmine and Bethany are a very good team, conducting business in an efficient and friendly way. All good!

      Ed is the best dentist that I’ve ever had and I’ve had many after being given Tetracycline as a child which took the enamel from my adult teeth. He is very sympathetic to those people who are scared of the needle and drill. He works fast and efficiently whilst still allowing the patient to rest. I really can’t fault anything. He explains every procedure and helps you to make an informed decision which is best for you. He truly is the best.

      My new dentist Jasmine wss friendly and welcoming.She took great trouble to check all my teeth (gently) and showed me them on a screen(fascinating) whilst explaining the work which needed to be done.Because I could clearly see my teeth..this all made sense to me.While lying back in the dentist's chair i also enjoyed watching a gorgeous travel film of Italy (no sound) which was v relaxing.I would highly recommend.

      I have been attending Ed and April's practice - Links Dental Practice, for many years, both as an NHS and private patient and have always been happy and satisfied with the attention and procedures I received. I have always been well looked after and even today they were able to take me for an emergency appointment, having only called them this morning. Great 5 star service always.

      I was initially sceptical about signing up for regular visitsto the dental hygeinist but am now an enthusiastic convert. Moon goes the extra mile, explaining clearly whats going on, taking the necessary action and then focussing on making my teeth look less grotty. Worth every penny.

      I finished my teeth alignment with Dr. Jasmine today. I am so excited to see my teeth neat and aligned, and everything goes smoothly where they are supposed to be. I would like to express my biggest thanks to Dr. Jasmine who is diligent, professional and highly experienced in her expertise. She is also a kind and patient dentist that kept track on all the details at every stage of my treatment. I also appreciate all the help and care from the whole team. Many thanks to Shufan and all the members on the reception who always contacted me on time to keep track on the treatment. Thanks to all of them, I finally got my biggest smile again with my aligned teeth. Hope the work of the whole team is going on well.

      I have had some minor treatment recently with Dr Sam Lockhart, and I can't praise him enough for being such a wonderful, skilled dentist. He always takes time to explain what he is doing and my treatment was genuinely pain free. It's great to have a dentist you feel safe with.Sammy his dental assistant was also very good. Thanks to you both!Juliet

      I want to extend my sincerest thanks to Sam Lockhart (supremely decent, gifted dentist), Sammy (trainee assistant who is better than most trained assistants and with a truly caring approach to her profession) and the lovely receptionist from Asturias. You chaps saved my Christmas. We never met before and we may never meet again, but this was the most positively unforgettable visit to a dental surgery I have ever had in more than sixty years. I salute you. Merry Christmas and all the very best for 2024.

      I went to Links Dental Practice for help, as for many years I was scared of dentists and my teeth were in very bad condition. I had a very friendly chat with Louise and on the same day I met Sam Lockhart. He is an amazing dentist with a great approach to patients. He made me feel comfortable and we arranged the process of fixing my smile. During every visit I was completely informed of what the plan was and what was going on, all procedures were painless. Sam Lockhart and his assistant Sammie are the best you can get. I would recommend them to everyone.Big THANK YOU for your help, you are the best.

      I have been with this practice many years and have had excellent service. Being in Denplan I was given all the treatment I have needed. The only problem was in lock down due to the restrictions on dentists, but that is the fault of the Scottish Government and not the practice.
      Elizabeth F.

      Without a doubt the best dental practice I've been to. Dr Sam Lockhart and Claire were genuinely excellent. They were aware of me being a nervous patient, they didn't rush and explained everything along the way for a tooth filling 🦷 The whole process was smooth and pain free, they first use a numbing gel, then the actual local anaesthetic so you don't get the pain of injecting the anesthetic in the first place. They were happy to play music in the room to distract me from the drilling which was really helpful. As a private practice, they can be expensive, but for someone like myself who is nervous who avoided dentists for sometime, it's worth paying to get the attention and care. Overall, I strongly recommend them.

      I am so lucky to have found this practice for my Invisalign treatment, bonding, whitening, and overall dental care! Dr Sam and Nurse Claire made me feel very comfortable and relaxed during our appointments, and were very thorough in explaining the procedures to me. They were also extremely patient, kind, and helped with so many other services and dental advice unrelated to my treatment! Everyone in the reception was also very warm and welcoming, and going to the dentist became a highlight of my day. The clinic was also visibly very hygienic and professional. The end product was beautiful, and I'm very happy with my smile now!

      This is a first class practice. Jasmine has demonstrated through her calm, friendly and intelligent approach that pain free dentistry can be achieved, allowing me to be relaxed with certain, more difficult procedures.The practice is a modern and relaxing environment with friendly and helpful reception staff. I actually enjoy going to the dentist now!

      Sam and Claire, as always, very efficient and professional but ready for a laugh 😊 Treatment options are always discussed and I know what my choices may be with my very tricky dental problems. Treatment has always been pain free. Today, I had an extra long appointment time and there was the option of choosing two items to ease my time in the chair. I chose the warm neck pad and the back massager. The neck pad was so warming, comforting and relaxing. The back massager, was doing the job but I found it noisy and distracting {perhaps not helped by my hearing aids} and I felt that I didn't want anything to be distracting Sam and Claire, especially Sam whose head was obviously quite near. 😊 I'd rather listen to the music 😊 However, others may find it useful.

      I had a particularly complex situation due to some current treatment and Sam did a fantastic job with my teeth. Incredibly knowledgeable and comforting about the procedures. I really appreciated a very detailed email about potential options and the pros and cons. Superb experience for a horrible tooth accident. Thank you!

      I’d like to thank & acknowledge Sam & Claire for their excellent pain free service. Sam replaced a deep filling & his care & attention to detail was clearly evident when I ran my tongue over the filling. No rough edges, no pain & really well sculpted new tooth. I’ll going to look after this one! Thanks Stuart A

      Sam and Claire were both fantastic. If I could give them more stars I would. It was a pain free and stress free experience. Everything was explained and I was reassured throughout the process.

      This place has totally changed my mindset when it comes to going to the dentist! I can honestly say I felt ZERO pain.I am a very nervous and anxious person when it comes to the dentist, especially when it comes to needles. My dentist (Sam) and nurse (Claire) were very accommodating and respectful of my nerves and anxiety. They took things at a pace I was comfortable with, explained what they were doing and why, and made me feel relaxed.I am now getting back on top of my dental care and have regained my confidence to smile without covering my mouth.
