Neeraj Puri with a special interest in Implants

Dental Phobia CertifiedNeeraj Puri qualified in Glasgow in 1996. He moved to Edinburgh the same year; working with many notable dentists to develop his skills. He has continued to progress his knowledge in advanced reconstructive, cosmetic and surgical dentistry by studying extensively in Europe and America to ensure that he is looking at the latest developments before they become available in this country. He is the chosen cosmetic and reconstructive dentist to the award winning Face and Body clinic.Neeraj has a special interest in bite–related problems that can manifest in headaches, neck and shoulder problems, migraines, sensitive teeth, loose teeth and clicky jaws. Addressing these problems increases the life expectancy of any dental work whether it is fillings or smile makeovers, implants or even just your natural dentition.Neeraj has been awarded a Certificate in Implantology from the prestigious Eastman Dental Institute. He is now keen to add to this by progressing to the Diploma in Implantology. His expertise in working in one of the few clinics in Scotland that uses many different systems of implants, enables him to use the best products tailored to each individual patient’s needs. Most of these treatments are available under local anaesthetic or even intravenous sedation.
My passion is working with my clients to create the smile they want. If the client is delighted with the end result I feel that I have done my job and can go home happy. I enjoy having the time to sit down and discuss and understand my client’s concerns, needs and aspirations and also how the result that we achieve will improve their quality of life. After all an attractive smile gives people more confidence as well as enjoyment in eating and communicating with others.

I love spending time with my family. In my spare time I enjoy yoga, travel and cycling. Cycling as a passion has been a rediscovery in the last two years. Before this the last time I cycled was when I was 10!!

Adrian Stewart with a special interest in Endodontics (root canal treatments)

Adrian has over 20 years of dental experience both in the UK and Australia. He has devoted considerable time and effort to hone his skills to provide a superior level of dentistry in root canal problems, which manifest as toothaches and tooth abscesses. As more and more people are holding onto there dentition it is comforting to know that problems which can arise in the root system can be treated competently by someone who is very experienced in this type of work. Previously , our clinic has had to appoint the service of root treatment specialists which can be inconvenient, in terms of waiting times and travel and very expensive for our clients. With the addition of Adrian to our team these treatments are now available to a higher standard but at a more affordable investment.He has spent time In Italy and at home to refine his skills with tooth coloured materials. This allows him to address problems in a more minimally invasive but aesthetic manner.Adrian holds a Diploma in Restorative Dentistry from the Royal College of Surgeons of England; a MSc in Clinical Dentistry from Leeds University and a Postgraduate Diploma in Endodontics from the prestigious Eastman Institute, London.
In my spare time (if I am not running after my 2 small daughters) I like to maintain an approximation of fitness through weight training, cycling and flogging my Concept II rower.

Many, many years ago I represented Ireland at rugby at Under 21 level and played my club rugby at Ballymena RFC. I am now relegated to the role of “has been” and only manage to take an interest from the sidelines.
