Meet The *Pain Free Dental Team

at Cherrybank Dental Spa

Every member of the Cherrybank Dental team is devoted to ensuring that their skills and knowledge remain at the forefront of dentistry, so we can deliver the best *pain free dentistry in Edinburgh.

Many first-time dentistry patients to Cherrybank are amazed and reassured by our approach. We often have patients tell us that they have a feeling their previous dentist experiences of quick visits for a ‘check-up’ are taking a ‘patch-up’ approach to their mouths, which may not be the best in the long-term.

Technology and preventive science have come a long way in dentistry.

I'd give the Edinburgh branch 100 stars if I could! Just moved to Edinburgh and had a dental emergency - I left a message at the weekend, they rang me first thing this morning, gave me an appointment for lunchtime and I walked out all sorted by 2pm. Ican't thank them enough. I'm seriously dental phobic and astonishingly they've fixed that too... no pain, no stress and the confidence now to go back on a regular basis. Lovely place, lovely staff and highly professional. I wish I'd found the practice years more

Cherrybank Dental Spa really is a fantastic practice. I have tried a number of private dental practices but there is no comparison to Cherrybank. I went to see Dr McCrudden for veneers and some fillings and he is absolutely amazing. Not only is his dentistry pain free, but the end results are beautiful! I would be so self conscious of my smile if it had not been for his input. I hated how my teeth looked but since seeing him I want people to notice my teeth and how perfect they look. They are so natural that people are shocked when I tell them they are veneers. I would never trust another dentist to go anywhere near my teeth now. Thank you Chris and all your team for always making me feel relaxed and giving me an enjoyable dental experience. These days it seems hard to more

I couldn't be happier with my results from my Invisalign treatment with Cherrybank!I've always been terrified of going to the dentist so getting braces was a big thing for me but Chris and the team at Cherrybank made me feel so at ease throughout the process and went above and beyond. There was zero pain and I had straight teeth in less than a year. My phobia of the dentist is now pretty much gone after receiving such great treatment. I now have me dream smile just in time for my wedding :-)I 100% recommend getting your Invisalign treatment done with Cherrybank- they're amazing!!!read more

I am delighted with my fabulous new smile after getting 20 porcelain veneers at Cherrybank. The premises are lovely and I found all members of staff to be friendly and professional. Special thanks to my main team of Chris, Marta and Laura ! I felt that I was listened to throughout the process, even when I asked to get the final veneers placed without having anaesthetic (my Fitbit still thought that I was having a sleep!). I definitely recommend Cherrybank for quality cosmetic dentistry and I am now going to switch to them for my routine more

Great dentists, lovely receptionists and nice comfortable waiting area. My only gripe would be the weird and slightly pushy sales model they operate. You get taken into a little windowless room to discuss proposed dental work with a very nice lady who does her best to make you feel at ease. However the whole process just feels a little odd and uncomfortable. I'd much prefer to have the conversation with the dentist, book in with recpetion and pay there rather than go through that rigmarole. While I'm being a little nit picky, I also feel sorry for the receptionists having to answer the phone saying 'hello cherry bank dental spa home of the perfect smile, xyz speaking how can I help'. This is Edinburgh not Orlando!! Poor sodsread more

This was truly a life-changing experience.I do not mean to be melodramatic in this statement. However, thanks to the wonderful care by everyone at Cherrybank, I've gone from having a chronic fear of dentists, to having that fear completely and utterly cured.I had put off any visit to the dentist for around 10-15 years after going through an ordeal in my late teens/early twenties. Unfortunately the past while I knew I needed a filling, yet thought I could manage it myself, putting off my visit for 'another day'. Staining caused by tea/coffee/red wine had also taken its toll, yet I was still postponing a visit. My fear was so bad I could not even listen to general conversations about dentistry without my heart pounding.All this came to an unpleasant conclusion when one evening, the tooth that needed a filling, snapped off. While I was in a blind panic my wife found Cherrybank when searching for dentists who cater for people with fears. I called the next day and was invited in almost immediately.From the moment I arrived , everyone made me feel at ease and when I saw Dr Umar for my assessment he could not have made more time for me to discuss my anxieties. Turned out I needed root canal, a crown, a number of fillings and of course, staining removed. I experienced zero pain and received a temporary filling there and then, which looked just like a tooth! On glance it did not look like I had lost one!Before having my corrective procedure I had a fantastic experience with the hygienist. She was lovely and in only 1 hour, my teeth went from almost rotten-looking, to a brand new white set!Next stage was the dental work required. We discussed anaesthesia and I was originally adamant I would require a local anaesthetic, which they could provide. However based on the positive experience to that point, we decided on a sedative instead. I took this on the day of my root canal, which absolutely was the correct recommendation. I was in the chair for around 2 hours, and felt no pain whatsoever. In actual fact at times it was hard to stay awake!When discussing my next appointments we agreed I didn't need another sedative.Fast forward to the end: in total 7 visits. I'd gone from a debilitating fear, to actually looking forward to coming in! In actual fact I was kind of sad at the end of my final visit!If anyone reading this has similar worries/anxieties I urge you to visit the team at Cherrybank. Like myself, it could genuinely change your life.Thanks everyone again, and see you soon for my next (regular) checkup!read more

I always am met with a warm smile in reception and all treatment has been in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The Dentists and Hygienists are thorough and explain each stage of treatment and are happy to answer any queries or worries.This Dental Spa completely changed my life in an amazingly good way by giving me the opportunity to exchange dentures for implants. That was not cheap, but even my husband agrees that it is just about the best money we ever spent. They gave me back a quality of life that I had totally lost. From being almost a recluse, I now enjoy an active social life again.Thank you Cherrybank Dental more

After several horrific experiences and being wrongfully told that I had gum disease by 2 NHS dentist I decided it was time to change again. So I found myself booking in at the Cherrybank Dental SpaEven the thought of leaving the house to go to the dentist was difficult for me, when I arrived at Cherrybank Dental Spa it took me a few minutes to pluck up the courage to go inside. The welcome is genuine and warm, the interior so calm and relaxing that you have to remind yourself that you are at the dentist and not in a 5* Hotel Lobby. From the beginning you are completely and thoroughly assessed, discussing what you’d like to achieve for your smile. As a nervous patient I felt completely reassured by everyone right from that very first phone call to book the appointment. Even if I tried I could not find fault at all on anything. My next appointment is for Root Canal Treatment which I am dreading but... for the first time in years I feel confident in the people who are looking after me. I simply can not recommend Cherrybank Bank Dental Spa enough. It really does feel like a more

I have been attending Cherrybank Dental Spa every 3 months for over 10 years, firstly travelling from Linlithgow to Perth until a Spa opened in Dundas Street Edinburgh.My main reason for attending was my dissatisfaction with previous dentists regarding dental hygiene as I suffered from bleeding gums. No matter how much care I took in cleaning my teeth there was always signs of bleeding.I am pleased to report at the age of 71 under the main care of Lauren there has been a significant improvement and Lauren has developed a plan for future maintenance. Confirmation of her hygiene treatment has been verified by a doctor at the clinic who is scheduled to carry out periodic routine inspection of my teeth.Also because the bleeding has been under control I had tooth whitening carried out a few years ago and to date have had no signs of deterioration from the day of the first treatment. I have always been fairly relaxed over the years in attending dentists whether it has been here in the UK, on holiday, or while working in Asia.However attending Cherrybank has been a unique experience as you would not believe while sitting in the lounge with a cup of coffee or tea before treatment you were actually in a dental clinic. There are no smells or noises which are normal for a dental clinic.Although over the years I have been offered the usual comforts on offer at the Spa I have never felt the need for them due to the relaxed atmosphere and the gentle dental care during treatment. In addition the reception staff who make you feel welcome.For the above reasons there is absolutely no need for dental more

My wife lives with severe mental health issues relating to trust, consent and trauma, as well as an autistic spectrum disorder. For years I searched for a dentist who could reassure us that they had the experience and compassion to work with her. Most dentists either aren't prepared for that, or they hand-wave severe mental health issues away as if it was just mild anxiety, and I knew that they would actually just make the situation worse. Cherrybank weren't like that at all.After I first made contact, I was given a callback by the treatment consultant who absolutely reassured me of their preparedness by telling me all about their experience. My wife and I then attended together and we talked through, not just a treatment plan, but also Cherrybank's ethos and my wife's frame of mind.She then had a series of appointments with Kirsty, who was amazing. Kirsty did a really good job of putting my wife at ease and taking into account all the requests we had made during the consultation. The first appointment with Kirsty was just a meet-and-greet, and to try out sitting in the chair. To give you an idea of the level of fear and trauma my wife was overcoming, just getting in the chair left her shaking, or having someone look in her mouth brought on tears, at first.The main thing that Kirsty did that was helpful was to explain every part of every procedure. It was really important to my wife that she knew exactly was Kirsty was doing and why, and Kirsty absolutely adhered to that. My wife knew at every point that she could stop the procedure, or the appointment, or the course, and that really helped. In many ways, it was better mental health therapy that she'd received elsewhere, although that's obvious not what it's for! Kirsty has lots of techniques and strategies ease anxiety and deal with panic.One simple thing that was really helpful was that Kirsty was happy for me to stay in the room and hold my wife's hand whenever she was in the chair.All the staff are lovely. The place honestly feels more like a spa than a dentist. They also have a bunch of wee options set up to make you feel more comfortable, for example you can have a blanket or lip balm. We'd never paid for private health-care before, but it was absolutely worth it for my wife to overcome her fears, take up a regular appointments after years and years and years, and even get a few fillings in a warm and compassionate more

1,205 days ago I walked into Cherrybank Dental Spa, nervous and anxious. I couldn’t bare anyone seeing my teeth, I mumbled and covered my mouth when speaking to people up close. The team at Cherrybank have transformed my life. After a process of getting my mouth healthy, I started my Invisalign journey. Today I walked out feeling emotional - I’m going to miss these ladies. The service you receive is impeccable, the team are always smiling and encourage you every step of the way - no matter what your journey. I want to take this opportunity to thank Kirsty!

This place has great atmosphere. And you actually feel there like in a SPA. Service is perfect from A-Z. Ladies at the reception always with beautiful smile and even if they are very busy - always looking after you straight away when you come. What was amazing - they are very flexible about ...everything. When I came first time I tend to book my first meeting. But luckily I had to wait only 15 min for consultation. And thats how I met Laura! Amazing person! always with smile, warm and chatty person who help you to choose the best treatment, book for you whatever is needed and help to proceed with monthly payments. She can manage everything perfectly so just leave it to Laura. My orthodontist was Dr. Katy Baldwin. This girl fix my teeth in only 3 months!!! Unbelievable... I was prepared for at least 6 if no longer to make it done before summer. My last appointment was with Dr Chris McCrudden who took off my braces and honestly never thought my visit can be so funny. Im very happy with my result in such a short time. Was worth every penny. Id like to thank to my great Doctors (and their assistants also), LAURA (you have 11/10💪🏻 for you service) and ladies at the reception.

I have always wanted veneers but was very anxious about getting them done. When I came across Cherrybank and eventually decided to go for my consultation I have never felt more at ease and in such a lovely environment. Laura the treatment coordinator was honestly absolutely fantastic, she talked me through the way Cherrybank work and how they would 100% make my end vision a reality. There were 4 stages after this, all very quick, easy and pain free and my dentist Katie was incredible. They were able to show me from xrays and pictures of how the finals were going to look in my mouth and also made up a mould and put it in my mouth to let me know how my finals would feel. All the horror stories about filing your teeth is not true at the prep stage and is minimal. Katie made me feel comfortable with music, a massage chair and the prep was PAIN FREE which I couldn’t believe as I’ve always been scared of the dentist. Laura the treatment coordinator always checked in and made sure everything was perfect. I can’t explain how much they were all so welcoming and have now decided to change my dentist to them. Thank you for making my end results even better than imagined. So natural and white. Can’t stop smiling. Check out their Instagram page for pics. Thank you cherry bank Edinburgh. You guys are seriously AMAZING 😀 !!!!!!read more

I came to Cherrybank Dental Spa Edinburgh for some treatment,and I have to say it was an amazing experience from start to finish. I am quite anxious at the dentist but the team were so welcoming and friendly. Erin,who was my nurse, put me at ease immediately and really made me feel relaxed. Dr Katy the dentist explained everything to me in language I could understand. I would highly recommend anyone who is anxious to visit as it really was a great experience, didn't even feel like I was at the dentist!read more

A great experience from start to finish. So happy Cherrybank were there to talk me through Invisalign and gave me the smile I wanted for years. The photos felt weird but now I can't stop looking at the before and after shots. I can't thank you enough.

I love how much attention and time I get at Cherrybank when discussing all my treatment options. I also gotta say everyone I talked to was always very realistic and understanding of my financial/lifestyle options. I always feel very welcome and dentists visits now definitely feel a lot more spa-like and less stressful!read more

I'm delighted with the results of my Invisalign treatment with Cherrybank, it felt like a big decision but I have no regrets at all. The team here are very professional but also very friendly and the service is always excellent. Invisalign treatment needs commitment but if you follow their advice and commit then the results can be amazing! I'll be using them for all my dental needs from now more

I admit to being an anxious (ok, very anxious!) patient following a stressful experience in the dental chair. I therefore searched for a dental practice that would listen to my concerns and booked an initial consultation appointment at Cherrybank Dental Spa, Perth (I completed my final (yay!) treatment in Edinburgh as this is where dentist, Chris McCrudden, is now based) Following examination the treatment options were discussed and agreed, along with cost. They helped me make the right decision for ME, with no pressure whatsoever. Starting treatment with dentist Chris McCrudden was relatively stress free as he is so unbelievably patient - trust me! At every visit he constantly updated & reassured me regarding the procedure. I admit to still being slightly nervous but every step of the journey with Chris felt so well controlled. I now have whiter, straighter teeth that look totally natural. So, if you're looking for a dental practice that offers excellent service & patient focussed care in a relaxed environment, look no further. I have, finally, found a dentist I can trust. Now I know the "drill" I am so much less hesitant about future visits for regular check ups. It's a big thumbs up from me! 👍read more

I had Invisalign to fix my teeth and still have ongoing hygiene treatments. The staff have always been so friendly and welcoming and the treatments are fantastic. I especially like all the little extras you tea/coffee, fruit, back massage/hand treatment while in the chair - excellent place & makes going to the dentist much more relaxing!read more

I had a very positive experience at Cherrybank Dental Spa. I chose Invisalign to help improve my smile, and I'm so happy at the results! I feel so much more confident in all types of situations, and the staff there were always really helpful. Everyone is commenting on how I'm smiling so much more! Well worth the money. Thanks, Cherrybank!read more

I recently attended Cherrybank on dundas street as i wanted to have a front tooth fixed. From the moment i walked into the practice i felt very welcome. The practice is so relaxing and the staff are extremely friendly. I am currenty using the teeth whitening kit and after only 1 week people have been giving me lovely comments. I will return in 2 weeks to have my individual tooth fixed and cant wait. My sister has already booked in for the same treatment due to my recommendation and i have 2 work collegues ready to do the same. Would highly recommend xread more

I would recommend Cherrybank Dental Spa to anybody that has been scared of the dentist in the past!! I had some terrible experiences at the dentist as a child and stopped going for a long time. I finally found the courage to visit and was shocked and amazed at how different my experience was. This dentist isn't like a dentist at all - its made to be very relaxing environment and the team are all very friendly, professional and genuinely caring. They even offer a menu with things to make your appointments better (headphones, blankets, even paraffin hand wax!) it really helps take your mind off things. I cant thank you enough!! read more

Well…where to begin…finding Cherrybank Dental Spa was a dream come true for me. This might sound slightly dramatic to some, but for me, it really was. For years i suffered with confidence because of the issue i had with my teeth. There was nothing majorly wrong with them, just a slight gap in my front two teeth and i did not have a very good bite.What made me more concious of this was because I am a singer, and having low self confidence was not helping with my performances. Being offered to wear metal braces by my orthodiontist was so unappealing and not something I wanted to have. This is when I chose to do some research and find another answer for my problem. Then I came across Cherrybank Dental Spa....Never having heard of the Spa, I decided to have a closer look as the website. There was so much offered by the Spa and what caught my eye was the option of invisable braces!! I instantly called for a consoltation. After having spoken to the Cherrybank team, discussing options for solving the problems I was having with my teeth, we came to a final decision and immediantly got to work! After six months of changing my trays every two weeks and the team having constant attention on the progress of my teeth, they were finally finished! It was the most painless and fastest procedure I had ever expected compared to what I would have gone through with metal braces. The results were amazing!I have no complaints about Cherrybank Dental Spa at all! I was treated incredibily well, the facilities are impeccable and you truly are made to feel like you are there to enjoy a day at the spa...and not just visiting your dentist! I would and have recommended the spa to many friends and family, who like me felt that there were not many options to perfect your teeth to the way you wanted. I finally have my perfect teeth and can now truly smile with confidence! Thank you!!!read more

I have recently had some cosmetic work done at Cherrybank. I would recommend this practice to anybody who is considering any kind of dental treatment. Aside from the comfortable and relaxing surroundings, what stuck out most for me was level of care and patience that the dental nurses and dentists offered. I had many questions prior to and throughout the course of my treatment and the girls at Cherrybank were more than happy to assist me at any time - both in person and through email. Cherrybank offer a really supportive, honest and compassionate service.If you're looking to have any work done on your teeth, visit Cherrybank for a consultation. I know I certainly won't be going anywhere else from now on! read more
