Was a bit nervous about my recent visit as I’d not been to the dentist in a while due to Covid restrictions, however, Robert and the team were excellent as always and made feel relaxed and comfortable. Special mention to the new hygienist (Claire) who I’d never been to before, thought she was very thorough and did a really good job considering I hadn’t been for so long. Dentists are not normally places you want to visit but I’d highly recommend the team at Slateford Dental Care.

I recently got an implant to replace my front tooth, Robert and Martine were both professional and friendly made me feel at ease from the start of my treatment till the end: I also needed a bone graft to hold the implant in place so was very nervous they were both very patient with me. Robert did an excellent job and I am absolutely delighted with my new tooth.

A big thank you to Robert and his team for giving me my smile and confidence back cannot recommend highly enough

Having not visited a dentist in some 10 years, I was a wee bit apprehensive about going to a dentist after so long! I was recommended Slateford Dental Care by a member of my family and I really shouldn’t have worried. Despite being a bit apprehensive about going in for my first appointment, my dentist Chris and his dental nurse Robyn were very reassuring and quickly put together a treatment plan for me. Chris always explains everything step by step and allows me to take my treatment at my pace. Together they have made going for a check-up or treatment a thing I no longer dread! Thank you Slateford Dental Care! 5 Stars!

Since joining Slateford Dental Care two years ago I have been extremely happy with the professional expertise given to me by my dentist Dawn Loudon and Dental Hygienist Alison. Initially requiring some quite substantial treatments after having not visited a dentist in quite a few years I was carefully guided through the whole process in a professional and sensitive manner. Procedures and costs were explained very clearly and most importantly the work, including root canal and crown treatment were carried out to an excellent standard. Overall my expectations have been met and surpassed and would recommend Slateford Dental Care to everyone.

Excellent care and treatment carried out with both consideration and expertise. Highly recommended.

Dawn is brilliant at tooth repair and fillings. She is very gentle but professional.


The treatment and care from Dawn and her Dental Nurse is both professional and friendly. She explains fully the treatment that is needed and does all she can to preserve my teeth and prevent further problems.

Alison has always made me feel at ease, being quite a nervous patient and I have no problems visiting the hygienist. I have very sensitive teeth and Alison always takes this into consideration by using the manual implements for scaling. I would recommend Alison very highly.

After many years of fearing the trips to the dentist Stephen has finally helped me to overcome my phobia. I would recommend the surgery (& Stephen!) to anyone – and indeed have. His patience is second to none.

I had not been to the dentist for a number of years and was terrified about coming to get my teeth seen to. Having taken the step to come to Slateford Dental Care Alison has guided me through my treatment. They calmed me down and through explaining each step and looking after me have enabled me to overcome my fear, keep my teeth in order and attend regularly. I would never have thought I would be able to say it but I look forward to my visits thanks to the care attention of both Alison and team.


As a result of a really traumatic accident whereby I fell backwards into a concrete basement I broke and damaged my two front teeth and the one on the left. The teeth were badly traumatised and it took the best part of a year to get them to a pain free state. During this time Dawn was so gentle, so reassuring and so professional in delivering the necessary dentistry.

I also received cosmetic work to repair my teeth. To say that the transformation was brilliant is not enough. The results are TRULY AMAZING and they look FANTASTIC! I cannot thank Dawn and the rest of the dedicated team enough. Dawn has given me back the confidence I had before the accident.
I would say to everyone that there is no need to get yourselves to L.A. for dental cosmetics – we are lucky enough to have Slateford Dental Care on our doorstep!

The treatment I have received from Stephen Harrison has been first class. His customer care, manners and Dental work is that of a professional practitioner and makes the dental experience a pleasure. He is a credit to your practice.

S Porteous

I am a sixty year old patient of Stephen Harrison and I can readily confirm that he is the best, most considerate and most informing dentist I have ever been treated by. An example to all young aspiring dentists.

I was very nervous about my treatment but Chris was very kind and patient. He arranged extra time & explained what was happening & checked I was ok. Very grateful for this which is why I return to Slateford even though I’ve moved away from the area. Great team.
