Dr Richard Turton works at this Dental Clinic
He qualified at Dundee dental school in 1992.
Subsequently he has 3 postgraduate degrees.
MFGDP from Royal College of Surgeons of England in 1996, DPDS from the University of Bristol in 2002 and the most recent MJDF from the Royal College of Surgeons of England completed in March 2012 to keep up to date with all the latest developments in the changing world of dentistry.
He can provide a full range of private dental treatments including tooth coloured fillings and metal free crowns and can whiten teeth using the most modern whitening products
Following a full assessment he can offer wrinkle reducing treatments( using Treatment for lines and wrinkles materials) and fillers
He is a certified practioner in the use of the Inman Aligner. This allows the straightening of front teeth without extractions in a fraction of the time normal orthodontic treatment takes -and at a fraction of the cost
The practice has 2 hygienists who can ensure that your gums are kept healthy. Regular attendance at a hygienist prevents bad breath,unsightly staining and reduces the possibility of losing teeth due to gum disease.
The surgery has a television above the dental chair to aid relaxation in the surgery during treatments.
It also has a camera to look inside your mouth which can be projected on to the television.This magnifies the teeth so any small problems can be located early and treated simply before they become large problems!
It also enables Dr Turton to show the patient what is happening in their mouth so he can educate how to prevent a minor problem from progressing to the stage where it requires intervention-ie the drill!
The clinical staff at the practice are all qualified dental nurses or are currently in training.
They are mostly long term members of the dental team and will all reasure you during all procedures.
We are all aware that attending the dentist is not everyones favourite thing but we all try to make the trips as pleasant and pain free as possible
