"I've got an extremely complex, extremely strong phobia that almost drove me to suicide. I hadn't seen a dentist in 6 years but now thanks to these two guys, I managed to get six teeth extracted and didn't feel a thing. With these guys at the helm I'd do it all again.

1) Fraser Hendrie, Craigentinny Dental Practice His manner is confidence inspiring. He gave me a whole hour during the initial appointment just to chat about my fears and get it all out. When he actually examined my mouth, I could hardly feel what he was doing. http://www.craigentinny.co.uk/team.htm

2) David Offord. Fraser referred me to David for the IV sedation. He's totally chilled, totally professional, and gives you plenty of time and space. The whole operation was painless and stress free. He now works at Vermilion, 24 St John's Road, Corstorphine, Edinburgh EH12 6NZ (website: https://www.vermilion.co.uk ).
