Welcome to

Banchory Dental Practice

Your friendly family dentist
in Aberdeenshire


Established in 2003 and with a vision of excellence, Banchory Dental Practice is situated in the heart of beautiful Royal Deeside. Our practice has become one of the leading dental practices in the area, successfully providing high-quality dental care for all of our patients.

Providing a range of dental care services allows us to tailor treatment according to your needs, using the most updated, modern techniques in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We are totally committed to your wellbeing, our welcoming team take pride in looking after our patients and are always available to help and advise, ensuring all your encounters with our practice are nothing but pleasant.

We were also shortlisted for the 2018 Scottish Dental Show Community Award for our efforts to help protect our eco-system by hosting our very own beehive. We sell our honey at the practice in aid of the Forget Me Not Club – a wonderful charity that helps those who suffer with dementia and their families.

We offer a wide variety of treatments

We appreciate that everyone is different and so we offer a variety of services to suit a range of dental needs. From general dental care for all the family to cosmetic dentistry such as tooth whitening, we have the experience to deliver all you require to enjoy a healthy smile. Whether you need crowns, bridges, veneers, fillings or dentures – we can provide it.

Over the years, the team has gone from strength to strength, expanding from very small beginnings to now working three full-time surgeries. We strive to build long-term relationships, educating and working with our patients to establish and maintain good oral health. This also enables us to work towards more advanced and cosmetic dental care to suit each individual’s needs and wishes.

We welcome new patients

We are very pleased to welcome both new NHS and private patients to our practice. At your initial examination, we will comprehensively assess the health of your teeth, gums and all other oral tissues, taking any X-rays we feel necessary. Your dentist will discuss with you any treatment options during this appointment and, if necessary, a further appointment will be made. By explaining the options fully, we enable you to make an informed decision about your future care. You will be given a written report, cost estimate, advice sheet and treatment plan as required. After this we will also agree on how often we would like to see you for routine examinations and hygienist visits. Once you have been seen and any required treatment completed, you will have the opportunity to join our monthly payment care plan. This is an affordable way to achieve ongoing high-quality dental care.

Experienced General Dental Practitioner from Glasgow with a wide base of treatment knowledge and skills.

Dental Associate
GDC Number:249688

Although I chose to work on a small, but personal part of human body I realised how big an impact it has on the whole body, our posture and wellbeing! I am interested in a variety of treatment provision, not just focusing on only on a single tooth. I also enjoy seeing how this has a positive impact on the person ,and seeing how they become more confident and the impact it has on their lives.

“The pleasant, professional atmosphere gives confidence that the treatment provided can be relied upon. The practice also has a pleasant atmosphere in the waiting area, adding to the feeling of competence. There is a high standard of communication between the surgeon and the patient and this gives confidence that any treatment will be appropriate. I would and have recommended the practice to others.”

I was... there 5 minutes before time but was kept waiting for half an hour without an explanation.

Staff are very friendly and helpful. My Dentist took his time to explain everything and always made sure I wasn’t in... any pain. Like a lot of people I don’t like going to the dentist but here I feel at ease. They are also fantastic with my girls, which makes the experience a lot easier. Thank youread more

I didn’t have to wait long, the waiting room chairs were well spaced and it felt safe. The only thing I felt a little... uncomfortable with was answering the Covid related questions in a public space. All the other stuff was online, and that was excellent. The person at reception was nice, it’s always nice to have your name remembered! The dentist, Paul, was new to me but he was very thorough and I really appreciated the care he took and the advice he gave. I’m looking forward to going back!read more

Excellent customer service by both girls in reception and Paul (the dentist) made what is usually an uncomfortable... experience at the dentist very relaxed. He discussed all options available and even fitted me in at short notice to rectify a sharp tooth/ filling. I would recommend Banchory Dental Practice to all and even those apprehensive about going to the more

I always feel safe when I attend my appointments.Having had a very bad experience with my last dentist, I was very... fragile when I went for my appointment with my new dentist, but I was really pleased when I met the 2 Dentists at Banchory Dental practice. They both put me at ease and now I have now nothing to worry more

Promises of being phoned back by receptionist did not happen. Had to travel to the practice and stay at reception until... my query was passed onto the dentist and answered. No indication when I arrived for my appointment on several occasions that the dentist was running up to 40 minutes late. I understand that lists may not run to time due to a variety of reasons but would expect to be told when I arrived on time for my appointment that there was a delay and indeed an apology. The dentist themselves was very more

My dental check up appointment was very good and highly professional as always. Unfortunately not as impressed with my... hygienist appointment. The basic treatment was fine but felt it was very rushed and the attempt at teeth polishing was completed in under a minute (one single quick pass of the polisher around my mouth with no attempt to actually polish them). Out in under 20 minutes and it cost more than my actual dental check up appointment which surprised more
