Appointment with Ali today - as always excellent patient care.
Wonderful friendly staff, excellent treatment, and a pleasurable place to go.
I had the Best experience with dentistry@no3. I couldn’t fault anything. I wanted to change the shape of my teeth ever since I was younger and so I had been researching different dentists in which I would really trust. I chose this practice due to the reviews I had read and the great consultation I had had before my treatment began. Driving from down in the Scottish borders was 100% worth my time and my smile is even better than I could of ever imagined! I would 110% recommend Ali to anyone. All staff are so professional and inviting and you get amazing results. I am over the moon with mine!
My first time visiting was on Saturday and I will definitely be back. All the staff were so friendly and welcoming and I did not feel like my appointment was rushed at any point. I was seen by Dr Alisdair Colquhoun who made me feel at ease and who fixed my teeth perfectly. 10/10 for every staff member at Dentistry @ No 3. 😊
Only been for a consultation thus far. Very impressed with the level of customer care nonetheless.
Wow can't put into words the positive changes that have been made since I attended this dentist. Ive gone from panicking about going in the first place to really enjoying the whole experience . Definitely not a number at this practice its all about getting the best for the patient. Would highly recommend wish i moved years ago. Thank you so much for being brilliant 😀
Having the worst fear of the dentist I read some reviews and just WOW.. I was made to feel at ease from the minute I picked up the phone to arrange an appointment and they understood how real my fear was. I have now started much needed treatment and so far so good! 😀
i was recommended by a friend and iam glad i did so as it was the best experience ive ever had at a dentist. great staff, always making sure your happy and comfortable and guiding you through your treatments.
I would highly recommend this dentist to anyone. Ali did a fantastic job. I am over the moon with my teeth.
Excellent as always, kind, friendly and caring, wheat more could you ask for
Very happy with my treatment. All staff very competent, professional and friendly making a visit to the dentist a pleasant experience!
This is the first time I have given a review for any service and am only doing so because it is outstanding . I hope this helps other people who have suffered the fear I have of attending the dentist . Fear is now a thing of the past for me with thanks to Alisdair at Dentistry No 3 . I actually found myself saying “that was great “ after having an injection and my tooth drilled ! Many thanks and much appreciation to Alisdair and the team . You truly are the best . Kindest Regards Jacquie H
I have not yet finished my treatment but am delighted with the results i can see so far and also with the staff both admin and dentist
First visit to a hygienist in 5 yrs and it was indeed painless with dentistry@no3. Shiny Teefs!! Thank you Laura....now looking forward to creating my new improved smile with Rebecca 😁
Amazing treatment from start to finish I cannot recommend them highly enough. I had a traumatic experience at another practice which left me extremely nervous about going back to the dentist, Alisdair and his team looked after me in a caring professional and person centred way, every step of my treatment was discussed and carried out with Alisdair constantly ensuring I was comfortable and always putting me at ease,Big thanks to all at Dentistry @ No 3
Excellent experience. I started off being terrified to go to a dentist having had bad experiences in the past. Now I have no fear at all. I was made to feel very comfortable and relaxed by all staff and Alistair is very gentle and puts you at ease. I am so glad I went to dentistry at No 3 and I would highly recommend this dental practice.
Alisdair and the team provide a fantastic service. They're knowledge and interpersonal skills are great, and information about procedures are communicated clearly and in detail, in a user friendly way.The techniques are absolutely pain free and as a patient I always feel valued, respected and that the team are totally focussed on ensuring I have a five star, anxiety free experience. They provide top quality dentistry in a relaxed person centred atmosphere.The premises are spotlessly clean, bright and modern and you're welcomed warmly from the moment you meet Barbara on reception.The equipment and techniques are also clearly current and evidence led, and Alisdair talks clearly and passionately about ongoing learning and development. Special mention also to Laura who is the gentlest and most thorough dental therapist I've ever experienced.I can't recommend Dentistry @ No 3 highly enough
First class friendly and professional service. I have just had 5 teeth removed and the whole procedure was entirely painless. I am always nervous when going for procedures at the dentist but this was amazing. I would highly recommend Dentistry@ No3.
Absolutely fantastic result!!! Alisdair and the whole team were bang on from day 1Feel I have a completely new and lovely smile for no where near as much as I expected to payCan’t recommend enough!!!!!
All the treatments I have had over several years have been highly professional and the approach is always reassuring. I've never had to wait long for an appointment and the aftercare instructions are comprehensive and effective. I recommend this practice very highly.
Well what can I say, the best dentist I have ever had!! Spent the last year having treatment to improve my smile and I am delighted with the results. Alistair is a genius and is supported by a fantastic, friendly team. Can’t recommend more highly, especially if like me, you were a bit of a coward when it came to dentists!!! Just brilliant 😁
Always fantastic treatment from here . I fully recommend
This practice is wonderful the treatments really are painfree I'm the biggest coward out and I enjoy going now The other wonderful thing is that if your appointment is slightly longer they offer complimentary pampering treatments as well I had the pariffin treatment for my hands Bliss and a lip balm for my dry lips Fantastic
can’t explain how amazing this dentist are , it doesn’t matter what’s wrong or what you want they will find the best way to fit your needs , the staff are incredible and professional. my mum is still undergoing treatment and they have been amazing with her. I chose to sit in the waiting room while my mum had a 6hour appointment and they made sure I was okay gave me stuff to drink was also checking on me every couple minutes giving me updates on my mum. THIS TEAM ARE INCREDIBLE!!!!!!
I couldn't recommend the practice more highly, it was recommended to me by a friend. The staff are incredibly helpful, patient and go the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable with treatment plans and treatment. They offer a wide range of treatment plans and take time to explain each treatment thoroughly, from meeting and discussing my plans with the practice manager to the dentist and hygienist, I was really impressed by the services of dentistry@ No 3. I've never been so confident in my smile!
So just back from my 1st check up at dentistry No 3 and all healing great after my implants last week. I can’t thank the staff at dentistry no 3 enough especially Alisdair Colquhoun for all the care and time taken to make sure my journey to my new smile has been a good one. After having spent 9 months searching for help I couldn’t be happier with my choice, my treatment from day one has been excellent and informative and not once did I feel uncomfortable or embarrassed as when I first went my mouth was so bad and bleeding and very painful but was quickly reassured by Alisdair that it was something he could fix and that he certainly has. I know have a happier and healthier mouth and has made such a difference to how I know feel about myself. I can’t wait to see the end result and know I will be very happy with the outcome. Finding the dentistry No 3 team has truly changed my life. Thanks again everyone you are ALL amazing. It’s safe to say that I would highly recommend Dentistry No 3 for all you’re dentistry needs and I can assure you that you will not be disappointed. Professional, caring, clean and certainly put a big smile back on my face. Give them a call trust me
Been using this dental practice since I was a kid, then for my own kids. I recently changed to a practice in Edinburgh, where I have lived for 20 years, to make life easier. I just wasn't the same and so now we're back with Dentistry at No.3!! Visited Laura, the hygienist yesterday and my teeth have never looked so clean. Thanks.
Happy patient, delighted with all the staff at No 3
Excellent practice & lovely staff. Especially Alisdair who is always so friendly and puts me at ease during my appointments. The treatment I had was pain free as promised. I would highly recommend Dentistry @ No3.
Received a first class service! My son contacted Dentistry @ No 3 after having a fall and knocking his teeth. Our own dentist didn't see this as an emergency but Dentistry @ No 3 did. They fitted him in that day (bearing in mind that he was not registered with them) and gave him an outstanding service from start to finish! They were patient, friendly and understanding, I cannot recommend them enough. Since then both my daughter and I have changed to Dentistry @ No 3 and haven't looked back! Rebecca made us feel at ease and neither of us are dreading going to the dentist! My appointment with Laura (hygienist) was really informative, she spent time with me answering all sorts of questions. I definitely made the right choice changing to Dentistry @ No 3.
Timely, sensitive and caring. Excellent treatment and a happy place!
I had just moved over from Canada and needed dental work. Rebecca treated my cavities and it was the most painless procedure I’ve ever had done! She used specialized needles and I mean it when I say I felt nothing! Rebecca and her staff gave me a very warm welcome to Scotland! Can not recommend enough, especially if you have a fear of the dentist like I do! Will definitely be going back!
It’s always a pleasant experience coming here. My teeth have improved beyond recognition. The headphones are. Welcome addition as is the hot towel. Probably the best practice in Fife!!
I needed an emergency appointment. I phoned at 9.20 and was given an appointment at 10.30.Tooth and gum sorted and pain gone. Great, friendly service from lovely staff
Hello,My name is Robert, I'm 62 years old and this my first experience of private dentistry. I had been going to the NHS every 6 months for all my life and now my teeth needed the treatment that are not availabe via NHS. My first appointment was with Kayleigh to discuss my requiements, I just wanted them all out. I'm now so glad she discouraged me.Next was my first appointment with my dentist Alisdair, he put me at ease straight away. He gave me a thorough examination and we discussed step by step his proposed plan to give me just what I wanted / needed. I was very happy with what we planned. I told then Ally something I never thought I'd hear myself say, I was really excited and looked forward the my next visit.Over the next few months I received extensive treatments all carried out by Nacho, Ally and his staff, Laura, Brenda, Dianne and Claire who were all very professional, friendly and real nice. Also Amy and Barberra on reception included. Now my treatment is nearly complete, I am very very happy with it and I would highly recommend the Pain free Dentistry @No3.I am still looking forward to my next appointment.Regards Robert
I visited this practice to discuss implants, unfortunately I cannot afford but everyone I met was very nice
Lovely consultant and fair price. Looking forward to getting my teeth done!
I can't recommend this practice enough. All of the staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and valued, which is just as important as the excellent treatment they provide. I'm so glad I moved to them!
Great dentist.. Knows what a dental coward I am and always makes sure that i'm not in pain.
Phoned at 10:50 had an appointment 11:30. The treatment was excellent out by 12:15. Great service as usual.
Excellent care with friendly helpful people. Been with them for years
I am one of those people who have been terrified of the dentist since childhood, even to the point of deliberately missing appointments!No longer! I have been going to dentistry at number 3 for 6 years without any problem. Absolutely first rate personnel who provide pain free treatment as promised.
The most amazing results from cosmetic bonding to make my teeth straighter and a better shape! So happy with the outcome, pain free and the staff are lovely! Feel more confident about my smile 😀
I can't stop smiling! After living with misaligned teeth Alistair sorted my smile within 4 months, I cannot believe the difference! So glad I took his advice, his care and attention to detail are second to none. 😁
Great and painless work over a period of three months! Very flexible with appointments and payments. Lovely kind staff all working hard to put any fears at ease. Highly recommend this dentist to any looking! Never felt better about myself or my teeth.
Popped in this morning to get something done about my horrible tea-stained teeth. They were turning a dark shade of brown, to the point my 4 year-old nephew bluntly told me I had "bad teeth"... thanks kid! Anyway, now they are all beautiful and white and shiny again! Very welcoming and friendly all round. Many thanks to Laura and Irene 👍
After a fall which resulted in 3 broken front teeth I was amazed to be treated without any pain at all. I have been a patient of Dentistry@No.3 for many years and have always received top class service. Alisdair is very kind and gentle and completely put me at ease.
Can’t recommended highly enough !!! Fantastic experience.. I had high speed braces on for less that 5 months and the results are remarkable, if I had known how affordable it was I would have did this years ago !!! I can’t stop smiling 😃 Ali and Dianne were so friendly and kept me updated on each visit of my progress. I always look forward to my appointments as I feel so relaxed.
Amazing treatment from start to finish. Friendly , relaxed environment and super staff! Extremely happy with my results and will continue being a patient here for a long time to come! Took my anxieties away about dentists! Felt so comfortable 🙂
I can highly recommend dentistry @no.3 friendly helpful staff delivering swift and amazing results. They have given me the confidence to smile again! Fantastic experience.
Is it too much to say that you almost 'enjoy' a visit to your dentist? I have to say that the team at Dentistry No 3 have successfully broken down the notion of what going to a dentist looks like for me.Having been a patient of the practice for a number of years - originally seeing Dr Alan Carter until his retirement and, more recently, Dr Alisdair Colquhoun , I find it a charming place to visit, with staff who are attentive and motivated to make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive.The dental work undertaken by both Alan and Alisdair for me, has been excellent; free of pain and properly explained throughout.Would highly recommend this practice.
Having not been to a dentist for many years due to being terrified, an emergency appointment was needed after Christmas. From the second I walked into Dentistry @No 3 I was put at ease. The receptionists have hearts of gold and are genuinely kind and welcoming.My treatment was all explained clearly by Alisdair and for the first time ever at a dentists I did not feel scared. Alisdair and the whole team are friendly, professional and compassionate. I have now been back three times and the difference in my teeth is incredible Not one minute of pain or discomfort during treatment and I've got my smile back.Fully recommend Dentistry @ No 3 to everyone, especially to anxious patients.
1st time in my life that I’ve had complete confidence in dentistry . Amazing caring compassionate and empathetic staff . I would highly recommend them.
I've been a patient for many years, and my experience has always been very good here. The staff are all very friendly and welcoming, and the practice is very modern and well-equipped. Alasdair is a very considerate and careful dentist and has always ensured pain free treatment, even during my more serious appointments! No-one genuinely enjoys a trip to the dentist, but here it really is as pain and stress-free as it gets.
I came to No 3 initially with a failing implant bridge. Alisdair produced a costed plan to remedy the situation and then went through it to make sure I was completely happy with all aspects before proceeding. It was quite a complicated procedure but over a period of some months a new bidge was fitted which looked and felt excellent thanks to Alisdairs skill and professionalism.But it is not just the high level of dental work that sets No 3 above its competitors. There is a wonderfully friendly atmosphere from all the staff as soon as you walk through the door. The receptionists, hygenists and dental nurses are the best.Highly recommended.
Was really professional, and felt totally at ease!Keep up good work all at dentistry no3.Craig elder
I’ve been a patient at No.3 for years and Have always had a good experience. The reception always have a warm welcome. The dentists are always very informative, kind and all treatment has been pain free. The nurses are always very caring and helpful, especially the lovely Claire. Would definitely recommend.
Having previously suffered rough treatment from a dental hygienist, it was a relief to be treated painlessly, in a relaxed atmosphere, and with pleasant company
Friendly staff, excellent treatment, what more could you ask! Alisdair always makes you feel at ease and his attention to detail is second to none. Great view from the dental chair too!
A fantastic 1st appointment with Alisdair. Made to feel very welcome and a calming experience. Hats off to Barbara in reception for easing the nerves.
Beautiful modern practice. Very friendly and helpful reception staff. I felt relaxed whilst in the dental chair with a view out to the summer garden. Alisdair delivered excellent treatment and it was pain-free as promised. I would highly recommend a visit to Dentistry @ No 3.
I was looking for a dentist as my veneer had come off. After calling several practices that I found to be completely disinterested I was becoming increasingly worried. The next on my list was Dentistry @ No3, WOW! what a difference. Barbara who answered my call immediately made me feel that I had finally found a practice that seemed intent on helping me. I was made a speedy appointment and thankfully could show my face to the world again. I cannot thank the team at Dentistry @ No3 enough. I have found a dental team that care and that I can trust. I wont be going anywhere else.
Lets face it no one likes going to the dentist, but what helps is the staff at No 3, Barbara on reception is always welcoming and friendly, she always puts you at ease and works hard to fit my appointments around my busy schedule. I've had various work done over the years from hygienist appointments to crowns and always been happy. Highly recommend especially if your nervous.
I have followed my favourite dentist Alisdair Colquhoun to No 3 as he has the most outstanding professional, relaxed and comforting manner.
Dentistry @ No 3 is a beautiful surgery. I’m very nervous about going to the dentist but Alisdair was wonderful and I had no problem having my fixed brace removed at all. Service is great and the treatment plan recommended was exactly what I wanted.
I broke my front teeth when I was young and over the years have had lots of work done to them. I was recommended to go to Alisdair who replaced my crowns. What a fantastic and natural result! I have been given back my smile! His attention to every fine detail was great and his caring attitude made me so relaxed.
Fantastic!I recently attended Dentistry at no 3 unhappy about the appearance of my front teeth. Alisdair took my concerns on board and presented a number of treatment options to me. He was so considerate and had a caring manner throughout. I ended up receiving orthodontics followed by composite bonding. I have a new found confidence with my new smile!Alisdair is an excellent dentist and I have since recommend him to a number of family members. So glad I found this practice.Thanks!
