“extremely talented and friendly Dentist”
Grab a coffee, sit down and let me tell you about my experience with Dentistry On The Clyde……………..
I lost my front tooth as the result of an accident at only eight years old. Unfortunately the tooth was shattered, however, the root was initially salvageable. This resulted in various procedures as I grew up to ensure my front tooth was in keeping with my age/stage. Dentistry in the 1980s was a vastly different landscape and I vividly remember being slapped across the face when an older Dentist tried to jag the front of my mouth. These scars have remained to this day and as a result the Dentist and I haven’t exactly been best of friends since !!
I first started researching an implant when I graduated from University and again when I was planning my Wedding. I was conscious of the visible bone loss at the front of my mouth, however, I never got past the initial consultation period as the fear of further invasive procedures far outweighed my aesthetic concerns. When I moved to Gourock we were on the lookout for a new Dentist. When I first met Dr McAuley I was instantly taken with her friendly and professional approach.
After examining my mouth I asked Dr McAuley what she would recommend regarding a full mouth overhaul. I had just had my second baby, turned 40 and decided I finally wanted to address the nemesis that was my mouth as I had grown tired of altering my smile to try and conceal the obvious indentation where I had bone loss. That and the fact my Maryland bridge was not the best from an aesthetic perspective !!! I received the plan, however, I still dithered – for many months !!! During this period my Maryland bridge began to fail and I was a regular at the practice.
Not once did Dr McAuley try to talk me into the plan as she was well aware of the reasoning behind my reticence. I was experiencing some trouble with a back molar which Dr McAuley was investigating. This turned into a “Root Canal’ procedure and as I was already in the chair and in no way expecting this, there was no way out ! Another invasive procedure was required – major bowel movement moment right there I can tell you !!!! Dr McAuley was outstanding during that appointment, both in her technical expertise (I experienced no pain) but most importantly in managing my anxiety. I knew at that point this was the Dentist that was going to transform my mouth. I had complete faith in Dr McAuley and knew she would not only deliver fantastic results but she would help me during the process and keep me calm. I am now nearing the end of my restoration and am literally beaming from ear to ear!!
I have had many procedures, MANY – implant, gum contouring, composite bonding, temporary crowns – the full works !! I would not be at this point if it had not been for Dr McAuley. You have an extremely talented and friendly Dentist as part of your team. I have no doubt that Dr McAuley will progress far in her career as she is passionate about what she does. If you are ever in doubt about the service you are delivering in Gourock this mail should alleviate that.
Your practice is delivering the level of care I would come to expect from a City Centre Private Practice. Come December this chick is going to have two front teeth – I have NEVER had two actual front teeth !!!!! This is dependent on the implant continuing to take well of course. Before signing off I also have to mention others at the practice that I have got to know well over the past two years. The “Dream Team” that is Laura & Liz !! What can I say, these two fabulous ladies run reception like a military operation. They constantly keep me on track with my many appointments and always have time to chat and seem genuinely interested in their patients. I also have to thank the immensely talented Donna, who assists Dr McAuley.
Every appointment I have attended has been on time, everything prepped and work carried out seamlessly. Donna & I have come a long way since my first appointment where she had to constantly tell me to “relax that tongue”. Thank you for taking the time to read my story and I can assure you I will be taking my mouth out for a celebratory BIG night out in Glasgow once everything is complete.

“I wasn’t in any way made to feel ashamed about my fear”
I cannot recommend this practice enough.
There are literally no words to describe how grateful I am for the fantastic care I received in both my initial emergency appointment and subsequent appointments.
After a really bad experience with my previous dentist, I have avoided going altogether. However recently I ended up needing an emergency appointment and 2 rounds of antibiotics/extraction on a tooth that had previous root canal treatment.
I had read previous reviews with scepticism if I’m honest – but called for an emergency appointment and I was given an appointment for 20 minutes later! On all 3 occasions, the reception staff were friendly and welcoming – this really made a huge difference for me.
I was given an appointment with Nial and Laura – who were so kind and understanding, and very clearly absolute professionals.
They really put me at ease and were very considerate and sympathetic of how anxious and frankly terrified/embarrassed I was. I wasn’t in any way made to feel ashamed about my fear or like it was an inconvenience.
From the initial injections through to the actual tooth coming out (I didn’t even feel it!) I was really well looked after. Nial double and triple checked I couldn’t feel anything at all and I have never felt so delighted to have been to the dentist in my life!
Despite issues with not feeling properly numbed up with my previous dentist, I can honestly say it was absolutely pain free!
I would rate a million stars if I could, I don’t feel at all nervous about going back for the other wee things I’m needing done. I will be registering my daughter, because when you have such a fantastic experience I’m confident she won’t develop the fear like I did!
Can honestly and undoubtedly say this is the best Dentist I’ve ever been to, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone.

“The Treatment Was Completely Pain Free”
I was worried about receiving the treatment. However Nial put me at ease by explaining before just what was entailed.
The treatment was completely pain free and the video glasses he used took my mind off the process. Again after Nial explained what I could expect and told me what I could take if I experienced any pain. My initial worries proved fruitless.

I found my experience really relaxing as I’m a bit nervous with getting work done on my teeth. I needed this filling done at very short notice as I’m receiving heart surgery 1 week later, therefore Nial assessed my needs and gave me the treatment right away.I can’t thank you enough, I can now go ahead with my surgery.
“I Will Definitely Be Back”
Felt very nervous coming into the dentist. Morven was very friendly and explained everything to me. I was given DVD goggles, which I have never had before and I found them very useful in taking my mind of my treatment.
My treatment was completely pain free and Morven and Donna put me at ease. All the staff I met at Dentistry on the Clyde were very friendly and helpful. I will definitely be back and will recommend Dentistry on the Clyde to my friends and family.
Very happy.Sarah was able to remove glue that had been on my teeth for many years causing staining. The Airflow made my teeth whiter. The whole experience was comfortable.
– Sheila Cameron
“DVD Goggles. What A Great Idea!”
I am a very nervous patient and was not looking forward to my appointment. I was seen by Rebecca and she was most pleasant. I was put at ease and when sat down asked if I’d like the DVD goggles. What a great idea!
My appointment flew and the goggles were a tremendous distraction. I will definitely be back to see Rebecca and would recommend the practice to anyone.
