What our patients have to say about us...

Another excellent patient experience at Gentle Touch. I look forward to my dental appointments and treatment now. The team is also understanding and intuitive in proposing treatment, and everything is always clearly explained. You feel valued and cared for from the moment you walk through the door.

Wow what excellent service. I am used to an NHS dentist where getting an emergency appointment involves a wait of up to 8 weeks or requires daily calls in the hope of picking up on a cancellation. I called Gentle Touch at 8:30 am, I was the Dentist chair by 10:00 the same day and had finished my treatment by 10:30. What a contrast. Thank you so much Gentle touch.

I had a procedure with Ciara and she was absolutely fantastic. I wasn’t sure what to expect but she talked me through everything in great detail and I was given the opportunity to ask any questions. I felt completely at ease and would recommend her to anyone.

Hi Folks. Just home from a visit to The Gentle Touch. What a wonderful team.I am always a bit nervous about getting teeth descaling. But I should say no worries at all - the service I received was great . I can truly say this was the Gentle Touch's team at its very best. Well done Amber and colleagues on providing a first-class service.

Made an appointment at The Gentle Touch to have an airflow treatment to clean my teeth before my wedding. I was nervous beforehand but the staff were very welcoming, friendly and professional and talked me through each step. Not only that, the hygienist even picked up on a possible small hole in one of my teeth that my regular NHS dentist has not noticed during my check ups. Highly recommended, the level of care is brilliant.

Initially, I was very nervous about the prospect of having implants to restore the gaps caused by previous extractions.  However, I felt better with the support received by Amber in tandem with the support from Vermilion. My mouth feels so much better now and all my teeth feel stronger with the support of the implants.

Being able to have follow-up appointments and treatment in Kelso will also save me the trips up to Edinburgh (see our news page for further information). I feel I have been very well supported throughout the process by Amber and her team at the Kelso dental practice.  They have a friendly and professional approach which put me at ease throughout my treatment.”

This was my first visit to The Gentle Touch. I was made to feel so at ease and safe that I have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending the Practice. I never thought I’d actually look forward to going to the Dentist but the experience was so positive and unlike any surgery I’ve ever been to before. I’m more than happy to return.

Ciara Sutherland is, quite simply, a top-class dentist. She combines true expertise with a 'gentle touch' and a comforting, reassuring manner. I cannot commend her highly enough!!
