High-quality private dental care on your doorstep

We strongly believe that our patients should not need to leave our beautiful island to access private dental care of a standard available in the rest of the UK. Our range of restorative and cosmetic dental treatments can restore your teeth back to how they were – or we can help you achieve the smile you always wanted with treatments such as teeth straightening and whitening. We also offer a range of facial treatments all administered by our highly trained team.

An experienced and dedicated team

We are passionate believers in continued professional development. We want to deliver the best treatment to our patients which means regularly attending courses and maintaining strong links with specialist colleagues from all over the UK and abroad.

Fully equipped treatment rooms with a hint of luxury

We refurbished our beautiful practice building in Kirkwall to enable us to provide a first-class service to our patients. Daisybank Clinic is fully equipped with dental equipment that enables us to provide a high standard of treatment within modern, luxurious surroundings. Our patients can relax in this beautiful environment whilst knowing they are in safe hands.

Same day crowns 

We are delighted to be able to offer this painless, modern and fast dental procedure at our practices, allowing our patients to leave with their new, restored smile after just one appointment. If you are a very busy person, multiple visits to a dentist for a crown are the last thing you want. Same day  crowns make the process less complicated and a lot faster.
