Dental treatment in Orkney tends to be a bit of a lottery but do try to Nigel Pendrey. He's probably the best dentist here. He works at the local hospital and I have found him to be very kind and helpful. He didn't judge me and I had a pretty grotty mouth before he got to work on me. I got to see him by asking my doctor to refer me having seen some of the others.
