About Dentistry on the Square

According to Dr Karve, 40 per cent of the western population are affected by dental fear.  A survey in Australia showed that a person with severe dental anxiety waits 17 days on average before making an appointment, as opposed to three days for people without dental fears.

Dentistry On The Square understand this. Everything we stand for goes against the grain of this frightening statistic.

Furthermore, we can handle all of your traditional dental requirements, such as check-ups, root canal and white fillings in an anxiety free environment. We offer cosmetic treatments such as clear braces, invisible braces, dental implants, veneers and teeth whitening.

Dentistry On The Square also utilise the latest dental technology combined with our PAIN FREE PROMISES to ensure you get the best possible dental experience.

Our claims are based on fact and proof from our patients and hence a justified expectation of the pain free results you can achieve. We are so convinced that you will feel no pain, we will refund your money if you do. 

Leading the team is Dr Mark Skimming, your Glasgow Dentist offering the latest products including 6 Month Smiles, Cfast Tooth Alignment, Inman Aligner, Cerec Veneers, All on 4 Dental Implants and much more.

5 Star Recommended Provider

In fact, we are classed as a 5 Star recommended provider of 6 Month Smiles in Scotland. P


we are also classed as a Platinum provider for Cfast Clear Braces in Scotland.

When Mark was just 27 years of age he was the Youngest Winning Dentist of a Masters Degree in Advanced Dentistry. He is now crusading to bring the People of Scotland Pain Free Dentistry or your money back guarantee. 

“Dentistry Without Any Pain”

Tea, coffee, and DVD Goggles are available to take your mind off things. All of your dental treatments are performed in a ‘calm and gentle’ environment ensuring that you are completely relaxed and stress free.

Dr Mark Skimming is one of the few dentists in Scotland who has invested in the The Waterlase machine.

Not only does it provide painless removal of decay it also allows us to perform dentistry without the need for a drill!

Mark was invited to sit on a panel in front of 100 of the UK’s leading dentists to educate them on his pain free techniques.

Added to that in 2010 Dentistry On The Square was awarded the WhatClinic Customer Service Award for responding promptly and helpfully to customer emails and phone calls.


In addition Mark was voted “Best Young Dentist” at the 2012 Dentistry Awards and Dentistry On The Square was “Highly Commended” in the “Best Practice” category. Furthermore Dental Therapist, Amy Workman, won the award for “Best Dental Care Professional“.

Mark’s clinic makes a point of answering phone calls 24 hours a day, seven days a week and provide “dentistry for busy Glasgow people” offering early, late and Saturday appointments.

Mark’s extreme focus on YOU, rather than WE the dentist – has also led to being featured in the media and he recently won an award for the ‘Provision of Extreme Customer Service’ by MPOD, a leading network for private dentists.

I got 10 Ceramic veneers & I have never been happier with my smile. The staff were so friendly and accommodating. Would definitely recommend it. My confidence has massively improved. I don’t cover my mouth when I smile or laugh anymore.

I would recommend this practice to anyone and consider that my outcome is well worth the cost

5 50 Root Canals, Fillings, Dental Bridges, Dental Crowns

Finished my treatment last week and I am absolutely delighted with the results. I had full restorative work carried out including laser gum treatment, root canal treatment, tooth fillings, crown and bridge replacements. As a nervous patient, I cannot emphasise how much the professionals at Dentistry on the Square and in particular Dr Jamie Kinnell and Amy Jackson made the complete experience stress free, comfortable and most importantly pain free. Before treatment started I was fully informed about what course of work was required (including the prices) and I was updated at each stage along the process. I would recommend this practice to anyone and consider that my outcome is well worth the cost.

I would not hesitate to recomend

Dental Implants

I had missing teeth and this was affecting my life badly.Putting my hand over my mouth when talking to people,no smiles,scared to laugh and photo's were just not on.My confidence was so low. But not anymore,not since I had 4 implants done.
Winning the lottery couldn't change my life as much as my new teeth have.
from initial contact to my very last visit ,my experience with Mark and his team has been 1st class.Having implants done is a fairly big undertaking and can be a bit frightening at times.Mark was always very kind,patient and very professional.Pain control and distraction therapy were always upermost.I actually laughed out loud during surgery,cause I was watching a very funny episode of Still Game !
I would not hesitate to recomend this clinic and happily give it 5 stars.

Extremely professional, friendly and skilled

4.9 50 Lip Filler • Paid: £290

I attended my consultation with Amy, the cosmetic specialist, for lip augmentation. Amy is extremely professional, friendly and skilled. The atmosphere in the practice overall is very friendly. I attended for my actual appointment then and had the treatment. Amy takes great care to get things right I was delighted with the results. I was quoted £290.00 on the day of the consultation I was asked for a deposit but no one had mentioned that in advance, the receptionist told me just to pay in full at my appointment. I actually recommended a friend to Amy because of the way she dealt with me.

So far so good!

4.1 50 Treatment for Wrinkles • Paid: £260

[Treatment name removed]™

I was seen by Amy who was really nice. She explained everything to me. I didn't find it painful. I had 3 areas on my forehead done. I actually had this done in the hope it would stop or at least reduce regular migraines. It has been 4 weeks now and so far so good and although I didn't really need it for cosmetic reasons, its an added bonus. Lots of people have commented on how nice my forehead looks.

I am still to go back and have braces put in, but treatment so far has been great. They have given me great advice on dental care and put me at ease, as I was very nervous about going to the dentist, and hadn't been in over 2 years.
Staff friendly and understanding and really know what they are talking about. I feel looked after and their prices are great for such a high level of service!

Dentistry On The Square are one of only a few cosmetic dentists in Glasgow that can provide you with an exciting technology, making it easier and faster to straighten your teeth, “High Speed Braces ™”. There is a lot of misinformation out there about straightening teeth! Mark Skimming has been straightening teeth for years. He is a certified dentist by the General Dentistry Council and a Member of the British Dental Association. To put it simply, Mark understands the downsides of braces and made it his mission in life to find a better way – and now he did! Not only for children, but for adults too! Before you decide on any treatment we ask you to come down to the practice for a Complimentary Consultation. This helps us to assess your needs and help you find the best straight teeth solution at the right price for you. In addition we will… Assess your needs and budget Decide which type of teeth straightening is right for you- e.g. Clear Aligner, 6 Month Smiles Discuss how long invisible braces take to straighten your teeth Talk about how much treatments cost Did you know you can have your teeth whitened and straightened at the same time? Explain why Invisible braces aren’t for everyone. Now we can kill 2 birds with one stone! You can whiten, brighten, and straighten your teeth all at once! Then after your teeth are straightened, you can touch up your smile if it´s not as bright as you want it to be! Isn’t that a deal! Usually whitening trays can cost as much as £200! Now we have the technology that can straighten and whiten all at the same time!

CEREC Dental Restorations

Our CEREC Technology has transformed the way we do crowns. The CEREC machine allows us to create a crown for you in a very short period of time, meaning that for most people we can actually fit your new crown during your lunch break! So for those of you who don’t know, Cerec means that you can come to Dentistry On The Square and if you need a crown or a veneer, most cases we can have it made on the same day for you, perhaps even within an hour in certain cases. If you have a broken tooth or you have a veneer that’s failed and it’s an emergency, front tooth perhaps, we can get that fixed with our technicians downstairs in probably an hour. For complex cases, in your smile, maybe in the afternoon. So you can come in in the morning, have your veneers or crowns fitted that same day. How do we do this? With the Cerec machine it’s all done on the computer; we have a 3d scanner and take a photo of your teeth creating digital impressions so no need for traditional impressions at Dentistry On The Square. From those models the computer designs your new crown to fit around your existing teeth, so one of the benefits of Cerec is perfect fit. Perfect fit means your crown or veneer will last longer. It also means it will feel more comfortable because the computer has designed that restoration around your own teeth so it’s bespoke to you, it’s not a technician guessing how your teeth come together, the computer has done it all for you.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is an artificial replacement tooth which has a similar colour to your natural teeth. They are available in a range of materials which includes gold, ceramic and the traditional porcelain fused to metal crown. The main advantage of a dental crown is that they hide the signs of a damaged or decayed tooth as well as maintaining the tooth’s current function. Crowns last for many years and are very strong and resilient. At Dentistry On The Square we offer a range of dental crowns to suit your needs.

PFM Crown

Porcelain fused to metal crowns (or PFM crowns) is a procedure whereby a metal alloy is attached to your tooth. Porcelain is then fused to the metal to create a very strong and long lasting crown. Because porcelain is used to create the outer part of the crown, the appearance is natural and the colour is very similar to that of your existing teeth. These crowns are strong enough to withstand heavy biting force, and at the same time can have an excellent cosmetic appearance.

Dental Implants

From as little as £1.72 per day, dental implants are a lot more affordable than you think. You may not believe me, but it’s now possible to place new dental implants in half a day. If you have some or all your teeth missing, with a bit of planning at the start, we can often place implants and place new teeth on to them, allowing you to chew, smile and feel happy about your appearance on that morning or afternoon! In addition to advanced scanning technology we also use a “Gentle Laser” to fit teeth implants, meaning your treatment is virtually painless with minimal swelling and infection.
