I just wanted to say a few words in recognition of Sebastian Mylchreest at the St Andrews Dental Care & Implant Clinic. I had to have a root canal and a new crown fitted during the C-19 restrictions as my own dentist was prohibited to carry out the work due to lockdown restrictions.Sebastian carried out a first rate job, he was extremely professional and very friendly, in addition to explaining the dental work as he proceeded with the treatment. The experience was as pain-free as you are likely to get when visiting a dentist. I found Sebastian to be genuine and extremely genial and would recommend him with no reservations. Thank you so much for a great job, I am very happy with my treatment and the result. 👍

I visited St Andrews Dental care for the first time and had a fantastic experience. I had a scale and polish treatment with airflow. Eilidh, the hygienist spent time explaining how to keep my gums healthy and clean. The treatment itself was completely pain free and it was over before I knew it! Megan also did a great job assisting Eilidh with the whole process. They were both so friendly and made me feel at ease. I would definitely go back to visit this practice again to get more treatments! Amazing service, thanks again☺️

I had a hygienist appointment for a deep clean and pureflow stain removal treatment before my wedding. The process was so efficient and not uncomfortable at all. Was done in half the time from my usual dentist. Elidh and mahira kept me notified of each step and were very friendly. Highly recommend 👌

After many years of feeling self-conscious about my teeth, I decided to take the plunge and go for Invisalign and composite bonding. From start to finish, the treatment I received from Sebastian and the team has been brilliant. Every step was carefully explained and I went from someone who dreaded the dentist, to looking forward to my appointments and seeing the progress and next steps. I now have perfectly white and straight teeth in time for my wedding next week and have no worries about smiling for the photos! I highly recommend St Andrews Dental Care to anyone looking for dental treatment.

Treated myself to Invisalign to straighten my front top and bottom teeth which had bothered me over the years, the treatment has proved to be a thoroughly worthwhile and quick experience with amazing results from wearing the clear invisible aligners, and with the option of a very affordable monthly payment plan.Sebastian took me through the treatment process with consistent professional care and advice. The process was extremely straight forward showing results as soon as 3/4 weeks from the start, I would highly recommend Sebastian and his team at St Andrews Care.

Some gentle persuasion from Chris and I finally agreed to have my Iffy wisdom tooth out having guarded it for about 50Years!After 40 minutes in Sebastian's consulting room with much reassurance, lots of local anaesthetic, a bit of tooth shuggling I left without my wisdom tooth (and one other) having felt not a twinge of pain or discomfort. Thankyou for your kindness and professionalism - BRILLIANT!I first went to see Chris to ask his advice on what (if anything) could be done to reduce the ugly distortion of my front teeth or at least prevent them getting any worse. When he suggested using INVISALIGN I have to admit I was quite sceptical that anything so apparently gentle and unobtrusive could deal with the challenge! Six months on the results have been absolutely wonderful - I can grin and chat without the urge to hide my ugly teeth. A huge thankyou to Chris and the INVISALIGN team for the advice, encouragement and support - I could not be more delighted with the outcome.

Best dentist in the world. No need to be scared....they all wear masks !!...........I look forward to the next 20 years with them.

Had three of my wisdom tooth removed with Sebastian and it was a very secure and comfortable experience. Each extraction was quick and smooth, and the recovery period was short and easy. I'm glad to have had the removals done by St Andrews Dental Care!

It is difficult to write about Sebastian and the team without sounding cliched. But the simple truth is they are superb! I had two front teeth replaced by an implant. It was a fascinating experience as Sebastian performed some of the most impressive precision engineering I have ever seen. From the latest 3D imaging of your needs to the final product I simply found myself sitting in the chair thinking about this incredible process. If you are nervous about going to the dentist, do not hesitate to use this clinic. As someone put it, I have been given back a set of camera-ready gnashers. A most sincere thank you to Sebastian and the team.

Amazing results and first-class treatment received - I whole-heartedly recommend Sebastian Mylchreest and the whole team. I thought I was too old for my teeth to be sorted out (late 40s) but Sebastian has given me my smile back again! Using comfortable braces, top and bottom, within a relatively short period of time, my teeth have been realigned - my teeth now look like they were always meant to! This treatment has also stopped me from further damaging and chipping my teeth, and has given me a more comfortable bite. I can't thank Sebastian and the team enough, very considerate, highly skilled and professional. I think Sebastian has worked miracles with my teeth - I'm no longer hiding my smile! I never thought I'd ever hear myself say I'm looking forward to my dental appointments - but that's how good the team are! Thank-you all so much!

Both myself and my daughter attended this clinic recently and we honestly can’t praise everyone enough. I received a dental implant, composite bonding and whitening treatment and my daughter had wisdom teeth removed. She was a nervous patient before setting foot in the building but now has zero fear. The process for the dental implant was no where near as stressful as I had imagined and was very surprised by how easy Sebastian and the team had made it seem. From the first consultation through to looking in the mirror to see my new smile I always felt so relaxed and never in pain. All the staff are super friendly and caring and would highly recommend to anyone considering any form of treatment.

I received implant treatment requiring a bone graft at St Andrews Dental Care recently. Not everyone has the talent for making an unpleasant experience into a pleasant one, but these guys managed it with unrivalled skill, professionalism and care. My new tooth is perfect, thank you.

Seb was very professional and made me feel at ease - nothing was too big an ask. Practice is very clean and Covid safe. All appointments were exactly on time and I didn't feel as if the appointment was rushed. No hesitation in recommending Seb to anyone.

Amazing experience start to end! The team are extremely friendly and I couldn't be happier with my results. A big thank you to Seb, Louise and the team of dental nurses I have had - each of them were amazing and well worth the trips up from London, I wouldn't go anywhere else!! I had been coming to this practice since I was little and couldn't recommend it enough.

I have been a patient at this practice since it opened, sometime last century! Throughout the years I have always been 100% satisfied with all my care and treatment from all the staff. The place is spotlessly clean, the equipment thoroughly modern and efficient, and I just know I am SAFE in the hands of the dental surgeons and dental nurses. This week I got two new front teeth (crowns) and I am ready for Christmas (and a whole lot more). I am in a prepayment plan so that even my bills are relatively pain-free.
Barbara MacFarlane

So happy with the work that Seb has carried out. After many years of living with 2 front teeth with small chips which had been very visibly repaired, he has done an amazing cosmetic and invisible repair. All my friends think that I have 2 new front teeth, fabulous! He also measured and fitted me with a new mouth guard to prevent damage from teeth grinding and for the first time in many years I wake up in the morning refreshed and rested after a good nights sleep, and without any pain in my jaw or neck. I would highly recommend St Andrews Dental Care to anyone looking for any form of dental treatment.

What a kind, caring and professional practice. I cannot express how relieved and happy I am to have found St Andrews Dental Care. I am genuinely terrified of all things dentist-related but I was put completely at my ease by the calm atmosphere of the clinic and the caring, thoughtful attitudes of the practice members. Both Kasia and Sebastian were wonderful and really took the time to listen to me, understand and reassure me that everything was going to be OK! Sebastian put me completely at ease in the treatment room, taking time to explain everything that he had discovered. My treatment was very gentle and thoughtful and I was actually able to relax. I left feeling elated that I had been to the dentist and actually left smiling for the first time ever! If you are worried or afraid of the dentist, this practice is your place. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

As someone who has a huge fear of dentists in general, and pretty much everything that goes with it… I was dreading my first appointment. However Chris and his amazing team soon eased me into feeling relaxed. Almost immediately I felt at ease, and shortly afterwards I actually found myself laughing and genuinely not scared at all. The magic that Chris and his team worked in my mouth has left me feeling like a new person. And honestly, the care and patience that Chris showed me is beyond words. I couldn’t recommend highly enough. You will be in the most capable and dedicated hands with Chris and his team. Thank you all so very much x

From my very first visit to St. Andrews Dental Care & Implant Clinic, I felt relaxed and at ease - which I had never before felt when visiting a dental practice. First, I had a long discussion with a very pleasant young lady about my requirements. Following this, an appointment was made with Dr. Chris Jordan, and we had further discussion about my needs, and what I particularly wanted to achieve from the treatment. Dr. Chris was sympathetic to my position, having lost quite a number of teeth at a relatively early age, and I decided eventually that, due to my age, I would have a new denture rather than implants. Dr. Chris was so considerate and understanding during my subsequent appointments, and was extremely painstaking and patient in checking every last tiny detail. I was treated with courtesy and kindness throughout the process, and Dr. Chris was very understanding of my need to feel relaxed and happy about smiling, speaking, laughing, and of course, eating. The end result is that I now have a smile to be proud of, and also a new confidence that I had been lacking for quite a long time regarding smiling, speaking and eating. I would thoroughly recommend St. Andrews Dental Care and Implant Clinic to anyone, and especially to those who, like me, previously had a fear and dread of dental treatment!
James Easton

I recently had two wisdom teeth removed and one partially removed by Sebastian and I cannot recommend him enough. I think most people hear a lot of horror stories about wisdom teeth but having the procedure done in the practice rather than in a hospital felt a lot less intimidating. Sebastian is not only a very skilled dentist but he genuinely cares about patient care and experience. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone for dental treatment! I also had sedation for the procedure from Chris. Again, he was very reassuring and the sedation definitely stops you from remembering anything about the treatment! Thank you!
Bronagh Masterson
Bronagh M.
I will never be a brave dental patient. I'm so tense when I cross the threshold that it's a wonder my hair isn't standing on end. Sebastian and Zoe are kind, patient, and encouraging, and they go to great lengths to make you feel comfortable and at ease.It's clear that Sebastian takes a real pride in his work - my fillings look and feel great. This has been my best ever dental experience.

After putting off the dentist for a long time, I eventually had to give in to my toothache and visit the dentistAfter researching many dental practises throughout fife, I decided to go to St Andrews Dental Care and seek some much needed help. The sign up process was simple and I was seen very quickly, the reception staff were extremely helpful and always smilingDr Chris Jordan & Louise quickly diagnosed what needed to be done and got to work and after a couple of visits and some root canal, I was good to go.Everyone I came into contact with at the practice was amazing and professional. If you are weary of the dentist (like me) or are worried about needles, this is the place to go for pain free dentistry, you won’t regret it.

As an extremely nervous patient, I cannot rate the care received from Chris and his team highly enough. All aspects of the treatment were explained fully and I suffered no pain or discomfort during or after the procedures. Thank you Chris, I have my smile back.

There are not enough superlatives to give this practice, and Sebastian Mylchreest in particular a worthy review. As a late sixties grandma with a lifelong phobia of the dentist, I can't believe how much dentistry has changed for the better. The whole team is fantastic, and do their utmost to put you at your ease. I recently had a crown fitted, and I had the second part of the procedure done without any anaesthetic. That may not sound like a big deal, but I used to have to take tranquillisers just to get through the door.Cannot praise them enough.

I was extremely happy with my dentist and when he retired I was anxious about finding a replacement. I needn’t have worried, Chris is a skilful and considerate dentist and I feel equally happy with him.

I had a broken tooth that had to be repaired. Sebastian explained all the options and we agreed a procedure, which was carried out the next day. It was so relaxed and painless that I fell asleep during the procedure! It is now 3 hours later, all numbness has gone and there is no discomfort whatever.Thank you Sebastian and the rest of the team for a quick and pain free experience - I would even say "enjoyable"!

I am new to the practice and can’t give enough praise for their exemplary level of care. The whole team are amazing, Kasia and Gemma are so welcoming and friendly making visits a pleasure. I needed extensive work so special thanks to the very caring Dr Chris Jordan and Louise and Eilidh, hygienist for their impeccable work over the past few months. Chris promised the final result would be really good and he didn’t disappoint exceeding my expectation. Loving my fabulous new smile.

Having today completed a lengthy course of treatment including crowns, root canals and an implant I must say that I cannot recommend this dental practice highly enough. From the initial consultation with Kelly to my final appointment, all the staff have been kind, caring, helpful and cheery. My dentist Dr Sebastian Mylchreest is extremely skilled, calm, friendly and humorous and he and his dental nurse Zoe, who is a totally competent and very reassuring presence, make a wonderful team. All my treatment was pain-free and stress-free as advertised and I could not be happier with my new look mouth! Thank you also to Dr Nik, the hygienist team and Kasia the receptionist. See you in 6 months!

I really cannot fault the excellent care I’ve had since first visiting St Andrews Dental Care last year to discuss replacing my existing veneers that I had fitted at another practice some years ago.From my initial smile consultation with Kelly to discuss what treatment options might be suitable for me, right through to meeting with Dr Chris Jordan, I have always been made to feel like I was the most important patient visiting that day.The end result is that I have a beautiful new set of composite veneers which I could not be happier with, it’s totally transformed how I feel about my smile - and everything was 100% pain free!So a special thanks to Chris, Louise and all the rest of the team at St Andrews Dental Care for being so great. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the practice to anyone seeking 1st class dental care.
