Cookie And Privacy Policy

We are very delighted that you have shown interest in our enterprise. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of the Dentistry @ No.3. The use of the Internet pages of the Dentistry @ No.3 is possible without any indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the Dentistry @ No.3. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.

As the controller, the Dentistry @ No.3 has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by telephone.

1. Definitions

An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

  • b) Data subject

    Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.

  • d) Restriction of processing

    Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.

  • e) Profiling

  • f) Pseudonymisation

    Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

  • g) Controller or controller responsible for the processing

    Controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.

  • j) Third party

    Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.

  • k) Consent

3. Cookies

The Internet pages of the Dentistry @ No.3 use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to differentiate the individual browser of the dats subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, the Dentistry @ No.3 can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously mentioned, to recognize our website users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to utilize our website. The website user that uses cookies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the website, and the cookie is thus stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in an online shop. The online store remembers the articles that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.

If you take the opportunity to ‘share’ content with friends through social networks – such as Facebook and Twitter – you may be sent cookies from these websites. We don’t control the setting of these cookies, so please check the third-party websites for more information about their cookies and how to manage them.

4. Collection of general data and information

The website of the Dentistry @ No.3 collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, the Dentistry @ No.3 does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, the Dentistry @ No.3 analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

5. Registration on our website

The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller with the indication of personal data. Which personal data are transmitted to the controller is determined by the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller, and for his own purposes. The controller may request transfer to one or more processors (e.g. a parcel service) that also uses personal data for an internal purpose which is attributable to the controller.

By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address—assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject—date, and time of the registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services, and, if necessary, to make it possible to investigate committed offenses. Insofar, the storage of this data is necessary to secure the controller. This data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a statutory obligation to pass on the data, or if the transfer serves the aim of criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject, with the voluntary indication of personal data, is intended to enable the controller to offer the data subject contents or services that may only be offered to registered users due to the nature of the matter in question. Registered persons are free to change the personal data specified during the registration at any time, or to have them completely deleted from the data stock of the controller.

The data controller shall, at any time, provide information upon request to each data subject as to what personal data are stored about the data subject. In addition, the data controller shall correct or erase personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, insofar as there are no statutory storage obligations. A Data Protection Officer particularly designated in this data protection declaration, as well as the entirety of the controller’s employees are available to the data subject in this respect as contact persons.

6. Subscription to our newsletters

On the website of the Dentistry @ No.3, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our enterprise’s newsletter. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered from the controller.

The Dentistry @ No.3 informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about enterprise offers. The enterprise’s newsletter may only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter shipping. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered by a data subject for the first time for newsletter shipping, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address as the data subject is authorized to receive the newsletter.

During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.

The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances. There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter service to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given for shipping the newsletter, may be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revocation of consent, a corresponding link is found in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller, or to communicate this to the controller in a different way.

7. Newsletter-Tracking

The newsletter of the Dentistry @ No.3 contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, the Dentistry @ No.3 may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.

Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Data subjects are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of the double-opt-in procedure. After a revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the controller. The Dentistry @ No.3 automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

8. Contact possibility via the website

The website of the Dentistry @ No.3 contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties.

9. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject to.

If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data are routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements.

10. Rights of the data subject

The Data Protection Officer of the Dentistry @ No.3 or another employee shall promptly ensure that the erasure request is complied with immediately.

    Where the controller has made personal data public and is obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has requested erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data, as far as processing is not required. The Data Protection Officer of the Dentistry @ No.3 or another employee will arrange the necessary measures in individual cases.

    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time, to processing of personal data concerning him or her, which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

    The Dentistry @ No.3 shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

    If the Dentistry @ No.3 processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the Dentistry @ No.3 to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the Dentistry @ No.3 will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

    In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her by the Dentistry @ No.3 for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

    In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may directly contact the Data Protection Officer of the Dentistry @ No.3 or another employee. In addition, the data subject is free in the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to use his or her right to object by automated means using technical specifications.

  • h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her, or similarly significantly affects him or her, as long as the decision (1) is not is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) is not authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is not based on the data subject’s explicit consent.

    If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) it is based on the data subject’s explicit consent, the CDentistry @ No.3 shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and contest the decision.

    If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated individual decision-making, he or she may at any time directly contact our Data Protection Officer of the Dentistry @ No.3 or another employee of the controller.

  • i) Right to withdraw data protection consent

    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to withdraw his or her consent to processing of his or her personal data at any time.

    f the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the consent, he or she may at any time directly contact our Data Protection Officer of the Dentistry @ No.3 or another employee of the controller.

11. Legal basis for the processing

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

12. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.

13. Period for which the personal data will be stored

The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.

14. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data

We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact our Data Protection Officer. Our Data Protection Officer clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.

15. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.

I chose Dentistry @ No 3 based on the many positive reviews I read online. And I’m so glad I did!I met with Rebecca a year ago, who put together a comprehensive plan/timeline for my smile makeover. She explained everything thoroughly and put me at ease throughout.All the staff are incredibly friendly and go above and beyond to make sure you have the best experience possible.I’d highly recommend Rebecca and Dentistry @ No 3 to anyone who has been putting this off like I have! I can now smile confidently for the 1st time in my life. Thank you! :)

I have been absolutely delighted with the incredible experience at dentistry @ No3 from beginning to end.I started with an initial consultation with Leigh who was able to give me a plethora of information from potential dental options all the way to payment plans and managing initial appointments with the dentist.The facilities are next level with the best technology at hand and modern techniques used without the typical clinical feel of dentists - from the moment you step in the door you feel so welcomed and part of a family; the reception area is like sitting in a living room with a relaxing atmosphere which really does help to settle any nerves about visiting the dentist. In addition to helpful, kind and supportive reception staff Barbara and Charlotte who will always be so accommodating around any schedules to meet appointment requirements with a smile on their face at all times - even able to offer cancellation appointments to expedite treatment where possible. Everyone leaves you feeling so relaxed about your treatment and I couldn’t be more thankful for everyone during every step to creating my smile transformation.To top it all off would be the professional, kind, caring and talented all round smile queen dentist, Rebecca! Not only was Rebecca able to break down all treatment options and give the best advice and guidance from her experience but was also able to make it simple to understand and what steps had to be taken alongside an accurate timeline with a treatment plan that worked to achieve the best results possible. She always makes you feel at ease and lets you raise any potential concerns you may have about any of the treatments. Rebecca is thorough, meticulous and has an outstanding ability to make you feel comfortable and like no question is ever silly.I can’t stop smiling and that’s thanks to you and your amazing team; you have made a real lasting impact on my confidence.You really do have the patience of a saint - everyone needs a dentist like Rebecca a true one of a kind. I don’t think I’ve ever said this but I’m going to miss my appointments with my dentist!

A wonderful dental surgery. Had 4 implants done there and Ali was an absolute gem and did a great job.

This was a journey, a no pain journey with a dreamfull end. Is like back to life again.Ali is highly professional with an amazing care for details, skills and patient care. A great thanks also to his amazing team.Can’t recommend anything else but Dentistry n. 3 to anyone.

I made the right decision in choosing Dentistry at No3. I have had a lot of work (crowns) carried out on my top teeth and the transformation is amazing. Alisdair was brilliant, friendly and explained every thing that would be happening and it was totally pain-free!!! He deserves every award he has been given.All the staff are lovely. If you're thinking about it ..... do it!!!

Chose Dentistry No3 following recommendations. Whilst only having had my initial appointment I was not disappointed. I have a major fear of the dentist and suffer from severe anxiety at the thought of attending any dentist. I need not have worried, the staff were friendly and the practice yet professional had a relaxed atmosphere. Staff were informative and knowledgeable and treatments explained without any obligation. Good payment options available.

Everyone I met in the practice has been so friendly. Rebecca is a marvellous dentist. I have found her to be so diligent and meticulous. I had an issue which was not Rebecca’s fault and she worked so hard and patiently with me to get the issue resolved and to make sure I had the best outcome with my treatment. There’s not many ‘Rebeccas’ going around. Well done and thank you! '

Everyone at dentistry @ no 3 are so friendly and professional. Like many, I had a fear of the dentist. I've just had a 2 hour appointment today with rebecca. She made me feel so relaxed and at ease and always asking if I was ok. Everything was as they say "pain free". Didnt even know she had given me an injection. Gone are the sleepless nights before dental visits. I would highly recommend rebecca at dentistry @ no3

I have had treatment with both Kirsty and Alistair this week and I can’t thank them enough. I was put at ease straight away. They explained every step of my treatment, what it would feel like and sound like. They checked I was ok throughout my appointments. I can honestly say I have never been so relaxed in a dentist chair. If, like me you are anxious of the dentist, I would highly recommend Dentistry no3
Leigh-Anne P.
Leigh-Anne P.
Highly recommend Dentistry @ No3.I had extractions, implants, bridge and crowns all done by Ali.Totally pain free. Ali explained everything he was doing at each appointment, cannot thank Ali enough for his care and attention to detail. He made sure I was ok and knew what was happening all the way through the treatment plan. From Leigh for my consultation, the receptionists, Kirsty the hygienist to Ali and the dental nurses everyone was lovely and welcoming. Thank you all.

Absolutely excellent.I have avoided the dentist for over 15 years as I was terrified after a horrible experience when I was younger. Eventually after having some pain that I couldn’t ignore any longer I made an appointment with Dentistry No3.Can genuinely say these guys have absolutely changed my outlook. Niall (dentist) and Laura hygienist) have both gone above and beyond to help me. They’re been so reassuring and let me take things at my own pace. Even during my panicking, both of them and their dental nurses made me feel safe and in control of what was happening.I LOVE how my teeth feel and look now, and feel so much more confident in attending appointments. Every member of the team from Leigh the smile advisor to reception have been brilliant.Thank you all so much!(P.S my appointment with Laura this week was the first time I’ve not cried before/during a dentist appointment for about 30 years!!!!)

I really took the time to investigate who I wanted to get my smile wedding ready for my big day. Dentistry @ no 3 really took the time to listen and get my appointments lined up so my smile was ready for my wedding. Dr Ali is definitely the best in the business! If you are looking for that extra boost of confidence - I would highly recommend Dentistry @ no.3.

Have had a great experience at this practice. I had a broken tooth that I thought couldn’t be salvaged. Ali saved the tooth and replaced an old, ill fitting crown next to it. It looks fantastic. Am really pleased. Care has been first rate.The team have been really flexible when booking me in too, to accommodate my difficult working hours. Can’t thank them enough.

Incredible! I cannot thank Rebecca and the team at Dentistry @ no3 enough! I’ve just completed my Invisalign with whitening and composite bonding and the results are better than I ever could have imagined. I highly recommend if you are thinking of getting dental treatment. They could not do enough to make the process as easy as possible and made sure I was 100% happy. I’m so delighted and cant stop smiling!

Having had a recommendation from my partner about Dentistry@ No 3, I thought I will give them a try. I was told that the treatment you receive is totally pain free, after getting 5 teeth out and a new denture fitted I can honestly say the whole process was indeed totally pain free. Alisdair Colquhoun is an outstanding dentist and I highly recommend this practice.

I have come to the end of my smile journey with Ali. I arrived as a nervous patient who had lived for years with low self esteem as a result of my teeth. I can honestly say that Ali has changed all of this for me, I love my new teeth/smile I no longer fear the dentist and I have found my confidence again, I no longer try to cover my mouth when I talk. I shared with Ali that in my original wedding pictures I was embarrassed to smile, I am returning to my wedding venue this year in Florida to celebrate my 10th wedding anniversary and I now plan to recreate some of our pictures as I can now smile at my husband with out embarrassment. I can’t thank Ali and the team enough for giving me back my smile and confidence, and I no longer fear the dentist, I would recommend dentistry No 3

I went to Dentistry @ No 3 as I had broken a crown. My own dentist told me he was certain I had 3 broken teeth, he didn't know what was keeping them in and he wasn't willing to tackle the work required. I was extremely worried, but Ali put me totally at ease and explained all my options including the possible need for implants. After thorough, pain free, investigation Ali confirmed I did not need implants, but my old, ill-fitting crowns needed to be replaced and the broken crown was root treated. The work is now complete and I couldn't be happier. My crowns are natural looking and a great colour match. Ali is easily the best dentist I have ever been to. It helps that he explains what he's going to do, so no surprises - and all totally pain free! All the staff are amazing and I would highly recommend Dentistry @ No 3.

My experience with Dentistry @ no.3 has been amazing from start to finish. From my initial consultation with Leigh, where we looked at all of my different options for my desired result, to the finished dental treatment by Rebecca. Rebecca put me at ease right away and was so friendly all the way through my treatment. She is a perfectionist and my teeth look better than I could have imagined. I had a course of Invisalign, followed by the replacement of silver fillings, whitening and composite bonding. My teeth look so natural. I can’t stop smiling and feel so much more confident. The girls at the front desk and of the dental nurses were all so welcoming and professional. I recommend Dentistry @ no.3 to everyone! First class service and all round experience.

I met Leigh initially for a consultation, who then matched me up with my Dentist Rebecca, a treatment plan was discussed & completed.Rebecca was very patient & excellent at her job. She carried out the plan, over a period of time & on completion I am delighted with the outcome.I now use the annual dental plan, getting checkups twice a year & visiting the hygienist every 3 months.I feel like smiling all the time, previously I was so self conscious about my teeth. Thank you to Rebecca Masterton & the rest of the team!

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dentistry No.3 to anyone. I have recently completed treatment on my teeth with Invisalign to straighten and align my top and bottom teeth. Finished off with composite edge bonding. Everything is so thorough and every appointment felt like a spa visit rather than a dentist appointment!I also can't sing Rebecca's praises highly enough. She is so personable with an incredibly calming manner and gentle approach to practice. I always felt at ease and knew exactly what to expect at each appointment. Everything was always explained to me before and during any work being done.I've enjoyed this journey so much that I was sad it was over! So much so that I have decided to transfer my core dental health over to Dentistry No3 as well as my two children through their dental plan.

I've been to dentists over the years and although they have been ok , I wasn't really particularly impressed or indeed selective about one dentist or another ... That is until I started as a patient at Dentistry @ No 3 , courteous , polite , they listen to what you actually want , even as bespoke as it might be, nothing is too much of a problem to them. Niall Henderson is really calming and explains the process. Pain free too , I have very sensitive areas in my mouth and I can't stand pain . This is the only dental practice where , whilst I was having fillings done etc and must have been on the chair for almost an hour or so , I was relaxed, so much so that I woke my self from a micro nap with a snore whilst the dentist was at work in my mouth ... embarrassingly true !! I am very happy with the way they operate and would recommend them to anyone who really cares about their smile as I do . I am very very fussy where dental work is concerned . Thank you Dentistry @ No .3 you are really exceptional at what you do.

My review is based on dental implants. I had an aging Maryland dental bridge consisting of x2 front teeth, and it was beginning to feel less secure with a worry of potential breakage. The bridge had already exceeded the life expectancy by nearly a decade, and I had some gum receding around one of the adjacent teeth of which the bridge was attached, so I was considering dental implants as a long-lasting solution.I already knew these had a high cost, so a little homework was required beforehand to ensure the investment was sound. I was already familiar with Dentistry No.3 due to a dental-cautious partner who had visited them previously and spoke highly of the experience.Although Dentistry No.3 was the furthest practice from my home, I ended up choosing them to carry out the work. There were several reasons for this. Primarily they were the first dentist out there I had contacted during the aftermath of Covid who were willing to get me in to help alleviate severe abscess pain, when most other dentists locally were still refusing to see people, leaving others in severe pain for an undetermined period. Among them were dental surgeries that were offering the dental implants I was initially considering, and because of the uncertainty around further restrictions, I did not want to undergo this kind of a procedure with a surgery that could steer towards imminent delays. Dentistry No.3 were far more prompt in that regard. The setting is very comfortable and the staff and dentists themselves all very friendly, which can be a stark parallel to many NHS dental surgeries out there, unfortunately. I had things, even little things identified during my implant appointments (that booked just for the implants) that were either missed or overlooked during full routine checks from my regular NHS dentist. I'm not sure if that speaks of the high attentiveness of the dentists at Dentistry no.3 or the inattentiveness of the NHS dentists, but it certainly provides reassurances that you're in great hands. They also offer a lifetime guarantee with their dental implants for extra peace of mind.The implant procedure itself, wasn’t one that was rushed. All possibilities were explored including gum grafts. I received a bone graft prior to the implant fitting, along with temporary bridges and gum shaping all carried out to ensure that the implants were the best that they could be. It was a procedure that was carried out delicately, but very precisely, and I was very happy with the end results.Thanks to Leigh, Ally and the rest of the team at Dentistry No.3. for making this a surprisingly comfortable experience

I can’t recommend this practice enough, hands down the best Dentist I’ve ever visited! Alisdair made me feel confident about the treatment and relaxed, and I usually feel very anxious in the chair! Treatment was carried out meticulously and pain free! Everyone is friendly, professional and a offer great standard of care. Updated - visited Shereen & Irene today for a Hygiene appointment and I'm again really pleased with both the treatment and results. Shereen was excellent and gave great advice, and I loved the charity donation made on my behalf - booked my next appointment already.Updated Jan ‘22 - just had my dental implant completed and so happy with it! Ali is a total perfectionist and guided and reassured me throughout the process, which seemed daunting at first but I needn’t have worried. The lab matched the new implant to my teeth perfectly and it was painless throughout, which is incredible. The team are all excellent, I wish I’d had it done years ago. Thank you!Update Nov 22 - started Invisalign treatment, great service as always - can’t wait to see the results!

Leigh was very friendly and also very knowledgeable. We talked through what I was thinking about and various treatment options. Her approach was very much appreciated as I was slightly apprehensive about my visit.My treatment with Rebecca couldn't have gone any better. Always a relaxed and reassuring atmosphere from walking in the door to leaving pain free. Every appointment I knew what was happening, a massive help for anyone with any anxiety around visiting the dentist. Many thanks.

I am delighted with my end result! I initially asked for an implant, however after consultation we decided that a Maryland bridge was a better option just due to the size of my mouth and teeth. Excellent process and pain free. I would always reccomend their services.

Highly recommend Dentistry @ No3!I was self conscious about my teeth for years and decided to get Invisalign in preparation for my wedding. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I was treated by Rebecca who is absolutely amazing - so welcoming, friendly and professional. She went above and beyond to make sure my smile was perfect for my wedding. Thank you so much Rebecca!All of the staff are great - reception team, Leigh the Smile Consultant, the Dental Hygienists - all amazing at what they do.

Having a smile like Shrek, I thought, "what's the worst that can happen?" so I went along to see Dr Ali and young Natalie and told them, "I want a smile like hers" pointing to Mrs C who has teeth like you'd see in an Oral B toothbrush advert. I'd expected laughter, but no, just reassurance and an Invisalign plan. So over the following couple of months things started looking pretty good: I got really quite positive during the whitening stage. Then Doc Ali (the smile whisperer) started the final stages of filing down the fangs and adding composite to the thread bare incisors until finally, young Natalie handed me a mirror and asked; pleased? I wasn't pleased, I was blinking ecstatic; almost crashed the car twice on the way home smiling at myself in themirror!! I've also discovered, if you smile at people, they smile back, especially Mrs C; what's not to like?!

I am honestly blown away with the level of care that I have received, from seeing the lovely Leigh to go through my options, to Rebecca for sorting a plan of action and moving things along so quickly, and today I met the lovely hygienist Kirsty who was just amazing, I have a real fear of the dentist down to a past experience and I can honestly say I am not scared for the rest of my treatments, can not wait for the end result. Thank you guys and also thank you to lovely ladies on reception who are so friendly you are all doing an amazing job.
