Many thanks for the superb job you have achieved on my teeth. It was a long and sometimes difficult journey but the results are fantastic.
They look good and eating is a joy.
I know others would not have tackled them but I am pleased you did.
On to the next project now!

Thank you so much for your amazing skill and patience in transforming my smile. I am amazed at and truly grateful for, your skill and determination to get everything just right. I never thought I would have such a healthy mouth and beautiful smile – it was a long journey but so worth it.
Your ability to combine amazing skill with empathy, patience and kindness meant so much to me. I was terrified to begin with but very quickly became totally confident that all would be well and I would receive the best possible care.
You are a genius! And your whole team are wonderful, so professional and kind.
My grateful thanks

Dear Philip and Jenn,
I just wanted to say thank you for being so patient and understanding to my situation. You both have been fantastic and that means so much to me. Thank you for all that you do and the hard work you all put into making people smile with pride…you’re both stars, you all are. I wish there were more professional and understanding people such as yourselves - the world would be far more pleasant.
L.B - Hyndland Dental Clinic
There are no words to express my sincere gratitude to you for the work you carried out for me recently.
I have never in my adult life been without a lump of plastic rattling about in my mouth and the difference is incredible.
I can drink without dribbling, eat without food being trapped and my mouth feels so much cleaner and fresher.
Thank you so much for your kindness
L.R - Hyndland Dental Clinic
Hi Phil, thank you for taking the time to see me today, it was very much appreciated. I am absolutely delighted with the crown. You are a genius.
The results of my treatment speak for themselves, my initial hopes were to have a smile that was natural, I didn't want to appear as if I'd had my teeth done. As a dentist myself I was always going to be hard to please, but the care and attention to detail that both Dr Friel and his technician put in to ensure the final results humbled me.
R.W - Hyndland Dental Clinic
Quite simply, my decision to have implants done by Jillian Clare at Philip Friel dental surgery is one of the best I have ever taken.
The final result is completely convincing and aesthetically exactly what I envisaged. The treatment throughout the process was clearly state-of-the-art and absolutely meticulous. Very importantly, Jillian Clare was greatly skilled at explaining exactly what all possible options were and what would be going on throughout the treatment.
The end results seem fairly miraculous, and in a perfectly ordered world everyone could benefit from attentions like these. The consequent improvement in sense of well-being and dental health has been wholly impressive Thanks and congratulations are owed on a huge scale to the redoubtable Jillian Clare!

I was referred to Advanced Dentistry @ Hyndland Dental Clinic for two dental implants. Since a
child, I have had an abject fear of visiting the dentist. I don't consider myself to be a
very good patient either! From my very first visit, from reception to treatment has
been fantastic. The staff are friendly and professional and I felt completely at ease.
Before treatment began, I received a letter with a breakdown of each process and,
on each visit, the treatment I was receiving on that occasion was explained again. I
also had a couple of appointments with Jennifer, the Hygienist, who gave me scale
and polish... pain-free. Loads of tips and advice on how to look after not only my
new implants but, my own teeth.
I now have two fantastic implants and my teeth are whiter, cleaner and look better than they have done for many years. I can't thank the entire team enough.
L.K - Hyndland Dental Clinic
Amazing! I am so thrilled to have my teeth back to normal. Having had a failed
implant put in by another dentist, I was apprehensive to try again, but the process
with Philip Friel was so seamless - dare I say easy!? - and the results are beyond
expectation. Highly highly recommend.
T.D - Hyndland Dental Clinic
Fabulous, professional and responsible practice. Couldn’t have received better care.
Everything extremely well explained including all options open to me. I am extremely
grateful that my root canal has finally been treated appropriately and that my
fractured tooth was salvaged so well. Great team effort all round.
R.S - Hyndland Dental Clinic
I was recommended by a friend to contact Phillip Friel for my dental implants, which I
had been thinking about for over two years. I can say that from the very first
appointment I was kept fully informed about my treatment. All options were explained
to me and I then decided on the best one that suited me. The procedure went ahead
without any complications and I am absolutely delighted with my two dental implants.
The staff were excellent and were very attentive. I would recommend Phillip Friel
Advanced Dentistry to everyone.
M.W - Hyndland Dental Clinic
Phil, I want to thank you for all these things that make a good dentist – your
professionalism, exceptional clinical skills, attention to detail, patience and
compassion. But there’s more to it than that – I really appreciate the way you have
always put enormous effort into doing what’s best for me, even at times when it
came at a personal cost to you and meant facing up to things that were difficult. I
greatly value your honesty and the way you always take me seriously and treat me
with respect. Finally, I really love my new gold crown and keep insisting on showing it
M.P - Hyndland Dental Clinic
I’m sure I’ve missed somebody out, but I’d particularly like to thank you. I wanted to thank
you all for your help and support over the last few years as I’ve worked on tackling
my dental phobia.
Phil’s name may be above the door, but it’s been very much a
team effort and it’s good to know that this is a place where I could see anybody and
know I am in safe hands. Everybody I’ve met has been kind, patient, discreet, totally
professional and willing to put in a great deal of effort at every stage. There are many
people to thank individually that I’ve had to overflow onto a separate piece of paper!
I’ve left some chocolates as a small token of my appreciation – I hope there’s
something in there for everybody.
Kasia, who was the person who first help my hand and showed me that things were
really going to be different here, and who has consistently been there to offer support
and encouragement ever since. Jen W, who has a genuine talent for keeping it real
and grounding me when things start to feel out of control and has on occasion
provided a shoulder to cry on.
Pamela, Louise, Jenn and Jill, who have all helped me at various times, and who have all been totally un-phased by coming in and out of a complicated messy story,
each responding with kindness and compassion.
Finally, Siobhan and Karyn, who have always provided a warm and friendly
welcome, handled all the unpredictability and chaos that dental phobia brings with
professionalism and discretion, and both often gone out of their way to make sure
everything runs smoothly.
Happy Patient - Hyndland Dental Clinic
I have recently completed a 2-year treatment plan with Philip, and I am delighted with
The treatment was scheduled around my busy work commitments, and Philip and his
colleagues provided a flexible, workable programme, which allowed me to complete
my treatment with no impact upon my business commitments.
Prior to registering with Advanced Dentistry @ Hyndland Dental Clinic, I was nervous and
uncomfortable with the prospect of dental treatment, and as such, I had avoided
dentists and allowed my teeth to decay badly over a number of years. The team at
the Hyndland clinic provide a friendly welcoming atmosphere, and have gone the
extra mile throughout my treatment period, so much so, that I now actually look
forward to going to the dentist.
Philip provided a detailed documented treatment plan, and discussed all the options
which I might like to consider, allowing me to choose the treatment which best suited
my needs, with the overall objective of restoring my smile. The treatment plan
involved extractions, fillings, bridge work, crowns and dental implants. Philip
explained every procedure in a simple straightforward manner, and was always
happy to answer any questions at any time.
Throughout the 2 years of the treatment plan, I didn't suffer a single incident of pain
I now have a fantastic smile, it looks completely natural, and has given me enormous
confidence when attending functions and speaking in public. I could not have hoped
for a better outcome.
Advanced Dentistry @ Hyndland Dental Clinic provides a first-class, pain-free, exceptionally friendly,
professional dental service. I am delighted with the outcome of my treatment, and I
would not hesitate to recommend Philip and his colleagues to anyone requiring
M.D. - Hyndland Dental Clinic
I have been a patient of Philip Friel’s for many years now and had no issue at all other than the very occasional repair of a filling. Last year one of two front crowns (relics of rugby injuries sixty years ago) broke and on investigation, it transpired that there were subterranean issues arising from poor NHS crown work at that time. After a lot of mining and open discussion, I agreed to go with his recommendation to have two implants, thus pre-empting any potential bone damage in the longer term and providing a permanent solution. After a lengthy and expensive process, I can honestly say that the end result is excellent and very comfortable and absolutely worthwhile. Strange to relate Philip and his staff made it all such an agreeable process that I even looked forward to appointments. Philip really cares, both in his detailed attention and personal pride in the final product and in the process when he was prepared to appear early one Saturday morning en route to Oban with family in response to an emergency call on a Friday night after a temporary crown had been dislodged. I can recommend Philip Friel and his practice without any qualification.
N.K - Hyndland Dental Clinic
My 7-year-old daughter broke her front teeth in an accident one evening and so we
called Philip Friel for emergency treatment. We are not patients of the practice but
nevertheless they understood our concern and stayed open late to see her.
The care we received was brilliant. The team was very friendly and Philip was
incredibly good putting my daughter at ease and making such an amazing repair. We
are all delighted with the outcome and would recommend this fantastic dental clinic
in a heartbeat.
K.S - Hyndland Dental Clinic
I had a conventional crown for a number of years - it frequently became detached
and had to be re-attached until there wasn't enough of the tooth left to attach it to. My
own dentist suggested an implant would be a much more lasting solution, but we've
all heard the horror stories so I was a bit scared.
I decided to go for a no-obligation consultation, where I got plenty of information and
absolutely no pressure to go ahead. The decision was mine, but I got all the
information I needed to make an informed choice.
I felt really reassured by Phil himself - the right balance between friendliness,
professionalism and reassurance so I decided to go ahead.
The things that mattered most to me were firstly clinical excellence. This was no rush
job and proper healing was Phil's priority before the final crown went on. I know
people who have had bad infections, so I know that matters! Also, Phil was in
constant liaison with my own NHS dentist. That shared care model was important to
me as my regular dental care was undertaken in the context of the implant process.
Finally, I'd been a bit worried about the extraction of the old root, as there wasn't much to
grip! I had local anaesthetic and can honestly say I didn't feel a thing. It was an
evening extraction, and by the next morning, there was no swelling or pain at all.
I'm really, really pleased with the final result. When I smile, I smile big. It's so much
better not to have an unsightly gap. It wasn't cheap, but it was worth every penny
H.W - Hyndland Dental Clinic
Many thanks to Philip and his team for the kindness and reassurance given during
my recent treatment.
I am delighted with my new implant. Following a root fracture, I was devastated at
the thought of losing a tooth.
I can, however, now testify to having undergone this treatment pain and anxiety-free.
So much so, I hadn't realised the initial implant placement had taken place. An amazing result has been achieved.
C.A - Hyndland Dental Clinic
I was lucky to come across Advanced Dentistry @ Hyndland Dental Clinic and it totally
exceeded my expectations. I had had a bad experience at a previous dentist and
was cautious if further treatment could be undertaken and the situation rectified.
Philip is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his profession which made
me feel confident with him doing my treatment. Since my first appointment, Phil and
his team have made me feel welcome and relaxed, he always talks me through
every procedure and I feel totally safe in his hands. Philip has solved a problem for
me that I didn’t think had a solution.
The clinic has a very welcoming feeling from the moment you step through the door.
Phil has a very professional friendly team, appointments were always available with
planning at times to fit round my diary. The reception team are always welcoming
and make you feel relaxed whilst waiting. Phil’s nurse Kasia is very competent and
also knowledgeable in my treatment plan. She also has a caring approach that
makes you feel very comfortable.
When considering this type of treatment it is only right to mention costs and I have to
say I was pleasantly surprised at the reasonable and fair price for such expertise of
work. I would happily recommend Phil and his colleagues to family and friends. Their
standards are extremely high and their patient care is remarkable. In my particular
case, I feel if Phil cannot sort it then it is unsortable!! Thank you Team PFAD.
J.W - Hyndland Dental Clinic
Being a dentist myself I have high standards when it comes to my own dental care,
standards Phillip Friel surpasses. I feel completely safe and reassured in his hands
and I trust him utterly with the care of my teeth.
I have had implant treatment with Phil, which was painless and came with only the
minimum amount of post-operative discomfort. I was also very pleased with the
results and cannot praise Phil enough for his excellent work.
The same care has obviously been taken into making the practice as comfortable
and welcoming as possible and it is always a pleasure to visit.
Phil and his team are exceptionally talented and friendly people, which I almost find
difficult to say being a rival dentist!
C.S - Hyndland Dental Clinic
I thoroughly recommend Philip Friel for dentistry. Phil has been treating me for a
number of years and I am extremely impressed. I am also a dentist and it is never
easy treating a professional colleague and dentists don't make the best patients.
Phil's dentistry is of the highest possible standards and I trust him impeccably with
my teeth. Phil has carried out complex implant treatment on myself and all
procedures were completely painless with minimum post-operative discomfort. Phil
and his staff are always welcoming, understanding, patient and professional and
completely put me at ease. The surgeries and waiting rooms are amazing. I cannot
praise Phil and his team enough
C.S - Hyndland Dental Clinic
Very good dental practice, every member of staff is lovely and makes you feel comfortable. Dr Brown and Alison and Hannah, hygienists are really nice and although I'm quite nervous going to the dentist they made me feel relaxed. The secretaries are lovely too. Would highly recommend.
J.H - Castle House Dental Clinic
I have used this dental service for many years and have always been delighted with the service I get. There is always a warm and friendly welcome from owners and staff. As for finding the building - it has an address and is clearly on maps and gps etc with ample parking outside.
Many thanks to Kevin, Anita and Alison for looking after me.
H.B - Castle House Dental Clinic
Always impressed by the professionalism and standard of treatment. I have just completed an implant course of treatment and am delighted with the outcome. Would never hesitate to recommend Castle House Dental Practice to anyone. Reception ladies always very warm and welcoming and put you at ease on arrival.
G.C - Castle House Dental Clinic
I was really anxious going in today, but it was explained really well and one of the most relaxed and pain free procedures I've had at the dentist.
H.R - Castle House Dental Clinic
I followed my dentist here from another practice.
Situated in a quiet corner of a business park.
Plenty of parking.
The staff are pleasant and professional.
Smart, relaxing premises.
The "reminder" the day before your appointment is reassuring.
D.P - Castle House Dental Clinic
Always very friendly helpful staff. Mr Brown explains clearly about any treatment you need and why. Been coming here since my daughter was small and she is very comfortable coming to the dentist.

Excellent service from Kevin Leeming and Louise Brough. Patient care is above and beyond. When my wife had an emergency she got an appointment the same day no problem. Couldn't be nicer.
