5 reasons why you should choose Links Dental for your Straight Teeth treatment

Number 1
Complete Dental Assessments

1) You are completely assessed by one of our dentists. We check the full health of your mouth so that we can guarantee the success of your treatment. This includes a full dental heath check, X-rays, gum condition, bite check and bone levels before we start your treatment.

The last thing we want to do is for you to lose your teeth further down the line because we tried to cut costs and cut corners.

Number 2
We Stick With You Throughout Your Treatment

2) We want to make sure your braces are right from the off. So, our dentists will check to ensure that your new retainers are properly fitting before you start your treatment. In addition, we know that sometimes we will need to take extra measures to ensure that stubborn teeth move into position as planned. Your dentist will see you regularly throughout treatment to make sure everything is going to plan.

Number 3
We Stop Your Teeth From Moving Back

3) We include not one, but two types of retainer for you to wear after you have finished your treatment. Again, we want your treatment to last, we don’t want those teeth to move back. Included as part of the package is a clear removable retainer for you to wear at night. And also, a fixed retainer that we place on the back of your teeth. That way if you forget the removable retainer the other one is always there working.

Number 4
Regulated And Protected

4) Our practice is regulated by the General Dentistry Council (GDC) and the NHS Health Board to make sure we reach standards in terms of training, cleanliness and accountability.

Number 5
Award Winning Premium Providers

5) We are part of an award-winning dental group (Pain Free Dentistry Group) that has won awards for Best Patient Care, Best Treatment of Nervous Patients and Practice of The Year. Not only that we are one of Scotland’s only Premium Providers of Invisalign and Cfast systems.

And finally, on top of all that, we guarantee you a straighter, whiter smile or your money back!

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.

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.

My relationship with my dentist is very good - I trust her to provide the best possible treatment for my problems. She is also very punctual, I never have to wait for longer than 5-10mins to get treated.

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 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
Alan B.

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!
Kim W.

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!

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 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!

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

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.
