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.

Cherrybank Dental Spa, Edinburgh, more specifically Nik and his team not only gave me a superb smile but a whole load more e.g. confidence that had been severely lacking prior to me contacting Cherrybank.I felt instantly at ease with all staff members and was guided, fully, with each of the options available to me. These options were backed up in paper copy and I was able to look over these, at leisure, within my own home.There was no pressure from anyone and I was able to make my own decision. However on saying that if I did have any questions I always felt comfortable enough to call Cherrybank and get advice etc.I chose to have a Full Arch Removable Implant Supported Bridge. Once I had made my decision it was all go and my treatment begun.As soon as I met with Nik, my oral implant surgeon specialist, he immediately gave me the confidence to proceed. To let you understand I am 73 and as such was a tad nervous however Nik allayed all my preconceived fears. He and his team really do know their products.On the day of my dental implant surgery I was extremely nervous however Nik came out into the waiting room and took the time to explain the surgery technique and the after effects.Nik does fully explain the good, the bad and the ugly. Post operation my face was swollen, then bruising appeared as Nik said it would. I did look like I had done a round with Tyson Fury however at this stage I would urge you to keep your eye on the final outcome. There is naturally going to be discomfort however this is controlled by paracetamol and ibrofen. By the third morning I did not require any further medication.Nik was always available by phone if needed, even out of hours, and he continued to see me on a regular basis checking on the progress of the dental implants.On an end note I received my new smile on Christmas week and was able to enjoy eating once again and had the biggest smile for many years.Thank you so much Nik and your amazing team.read more

I'm a very nervous person when it comes to the dentist but from the first phone call to the first assessment everyone was kind, professional and informed me, every step of the way, as to what they were going to do.Having now had several major pieces of dental work down, given with great care and professionalism and even though I still hate the thought of the dentist my experience with Cherrybank has given me the confidence to continue my treatment which will, of course, in the long run lessen my need for the dentist other than the regular check ups and cleaning.I have no regrets in choosing Cherrybank. Thank you.read more

I went in after breaking my 2 front teeth. I was seen to by Nick, who inspected the injury and talked me through my different option. After waiting a few weeks to make sure my teeth were still alive I proceeded in getting veneers. They look fantastic and very natural. Nick, the dental nurses and the receptionists made the process very smooth, very easy and most importantly pain free. Thank youread more

I'm incredibly grateful for having come across Nik. Having a good dentist is so incredibly valuable in life. He's gentle, explains very thoroughly, always asks if you have questions, and most importantly is incredibly prudent with his drilling, only drilling as much (if any) as is necessary.

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! You have been amazing, you’ve pushed me further than I ever thought I could go - I will forever be grateful!! I would recommend Cherrybank Dental Spa 💯Me and my smile will be back 😁read more
