Neeraj Puri with a special interest in Implants
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!!
Christine Morrell graduated from Edinburgh Dental School in 1993.
Her early career focused on gaining experience within general practice and hospital clinics to ensure a broad range of clinical skills. After working in London she returned to Edinburgh and focused on postgraduate studies. She has completed many high profile courses that are respected within the dental profession. Christine is particularly committed to helping people who have been unable to receive the dental care that they need.
“Everyone is different and it is important to me to get to know my clients personally. I am very experienced in helping people who have a fear of dental treatment itself or feel that they will not be understood or judged. I realise that some people attend only once they have a problem and I make it my goal to help them feel that they have the final decision on how their dental health and care is managed.“
Ailsa Hall Dental Therapist
Ailsa qualified in 2011 with a BSc in Oral Health Science from the University of Dundee.

She strongly believes in tailoring each clients' visit to suit their individual needs. Her qualifications allow her to administer local anaesthetic and take x-rays.
Her interests outside of work include pilates, badminton, drawing and playing board games.
"My favourite aspect of the work I do for the team is solving problems with practical solutions. My goal is to have a positive impact on a client's approach to the health of their teeth & gums and to give them confidence in what they can do to improve their oral hygiene. When I feel I have made a difference it's a good day at work!"
Sophie graduated from Dundee University with Distinction in 2015. She then made the move to Edinburgh and since has gone on to do further training in airflow, the treatment of peri-implantitis and teeth whitening.
As a dental hygienist Sophie enjoys educating and empowering others on how to improve both their dental and overall health. She realises each patient is unique and that what works for one may not work for another. Sophie looks to find solutions and provide unique advice tailored to each individual client to achieve and maintain their oral health.
“Outside of work I enjoy travelling and shopping; as a wise man once said, a girl can never have too many shoes!”
“I am dedicated to the smooth running of the practice together with making sure our clients and team are well looked after. In my spare time I enjoy golf, running and scuba diving.”
