What our patients have to say about us...

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.”

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.

In the olden days it was a scale and polish, now it’s Airflow..... It’s just like power washing your teeth with warm water and air. It’s completely painless!!! I believe it has given me cleaner teeth without the little niggles the cold water can give during the scaling process.

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!!

I recently had two excellent sessions at The Gentle Touch, one of which being an emergency appointment after experiencing horrendous toothache. The practice staff were exceptionally welcoming of me as a new patient and immediately helped me to alleviate my anxieties. The whole experience was superb, so much so I’m actually looking forward to future appointments.

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.

I am a huge fan of the Airflow hygiene treatment at the Gentle Touch. The dental therapists are always amazing - gentle but incredibly effective, leaving me with beautifully clean teeth.

I also recently had repairs made to a chipped tooth as well as a filling - both by dentist Amber Aplin. It was quite a long procedure but I honestly could have fallen asleep as I felt so relaxed in the chair! And the result is excellent. Thank you to all the team at the Gentle Touch.
