Neil BremnerDentists

GDC - 228746 BDS University of Aberdeen 2012 Dentist

A qualified doctor and dentist, Neil brings together his medical and surgical experience.

Neil first qualified as a doctor in 2001 and gained extensive surgical experience, qualifying as a member of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow in 2005. He worked in the specialty of ear, nose and throat and in plastic and reconstructive surgery. During this time, Neil developed an interest in the treatment of head and neck diseases, and an opportunity then arose to further develop his skills and knowledge in this field when he attended the University of Aberdeen dental school, from which he graduated in 2012.

With his clinical skills and relaxed bedside manner, Neil chose a career in general dentistry, which took him back to Glasgow, where he worked in two very busy clinics and gained experience in dental sedation and dental implants. His interest in these disciplines has been cemented by ongoing postgraduate training, with Neil becoming an NHS Education for Scotland sedation mentor, allowing him to train colleagues.

Neil completed the Scottish Implant Year Course in 2014, and has completed further advanced training in the restoration of single, multiple and full mouth implants and using bone grafting and augmentation procedures to allow implant placement in cases where conventional techniques may mean implant treatment is not possible.

Neil finds it particularly satisfying to help patients with dental anxiety to build confidence back up to allow treatment to be completed.

No, orthodontics for adults is becoming more and more common. We can talk through your options with you.

We do understand that some people really struggle with dental treatment. But we have lots of ways to help put you at ease. Please just tell us how you feel and what worries you, and then we can work together to decide on the right approach.

Generally we recommend twice yearly check-ups every six months. However, this varies on a case by case basis. Your Bupa Dental Care dentist will talk to you about when and how often we need to see you.

Fillings repair small holes in your tooth enamel. If they aren’t filled, the decay will deepen. You’ll start to feel pain, and you could end up needing root canal treatment, which is much more significant and costs more. So although you might not feel pain right now, it’s best to repair these holes as soon as possible.
