More Patient Reviews of Appletree Dental Care
I had regular dental checkups all of my life but had never been completely happy with my smile or bite. It was never resolved and I decided to find a dentist who placed cosmetic braces. Dr Murphy’s main focus was, however, on the effects of my bite on long term dental health. The cosmetic aspects became secondary and I’m relieved to have been referred for specialist treatment. I still go back to Appletree for my regular checkups and hygienist treatments. The focus is on prevention and good advice.

Appletree dental is where I refer patients for implants, cosmetic dentistry and full mouth rehabilitation. Patients are made appointments without delay, the staff are professional and caring and the clinical results have always been excellent.
Feedback from my patients has been 100% positive, every one delighted with their new smile and satisfied with the treatment they received from Dr. Murphy and his team.
The dentist I normally go to didn’t do this kind of work so he referred me to Dr Murphy. The staff were absolutely fabulous- very, very welcoming and chatty.
They get to know their patients quickly and vice versa. There weren’t any questions which they couldn’t answer or find out for me.
I would absolutely recommend them- I think I will go back to get similar treatment for bottom teeth later this year.
I didn’t like my top teeth and now I’m back to my old self, giving everyone big smiles. Thank you again.

I came to Appletree Dental Care having seen a couple of other dentists. I wasn’t sure whether I needed veneers/crowns/bonding but the dentist carried out a lengthy consultation and discussed it all thoroughly. we agreed on a plan. I knew I wanted my teeth straighter and whiter.
My plan was quite complex because of some treatments that had been carried out a long time ago.
I got the results that I wanted and any minor issues were attended to quickly and without fuss. The staff are nice people and I’m happy that I’ve chosen this practice.

I had seen my dentist because I wanted a bridge where one of my back teeth were missing. I wasn’t particularly happy with the price quoted and checked out the Appletree practice website. The prices were displayed on the site and I made an appointment for a free consultation.
Dr Murphy spent time thoroughly checking my teeth and gave me a plan. I was delighted to have him confirm that the price was slightly less than half the fees quoted by my previous dentist.
My bridge feels and looks totally natural and the experience of treatment at Appletree has been positive from start to finish. I now visit the practice for my routine hygiene visits and check ups.
I wasn’t at all happy with my smile due to colours, shapes, angles and crowded teeth. Dr Murphy explained that cosmetic braces would fix most but not all of those things.
When braces came off I was really happy with the result, especially after whitening, but the shape of some teeth still concerned me. Now that Dr Murphy has fitted my veneers I couldn’t be happier with the result. He gave me sound advice at every stage in terms of what benefits each treatment provides, without at any stage dictating the choices I should make. This approach gave me the knowledge and confidence to go through with my treatment. I couldn’t be happier with the result.

My dentist referred me to Dr Murphy in 2006 for implant treatment. It took some time but eventually he fitted an implant crown which still looks perfect.
After my dentist retired I didn’t need to look too far for a new practice and the girls at Appletree have made me so welcome.

I came to see Dr Murphy having seen a couple of other dentists about the gaps in my teeth. Having been told that I needed a denture or implants I wanted another option.
One of the other dentists was very expensive and Dr Murphy reassured me that there was a third option. He made me a dental bridge which has been fantastic.
As I’m a particularly nervous patient I was delighted that everything was painfree. We’re lucky to have a local dentist in Glasgow who considers the patient first. It would be fair to say that the Appletree Dental Care prices were more than reasonable.
Dr Murphy has been my dentist for several years now. My whole family are now registered with Appletree Dental Care including my 82 year old Aunt who has received outstanding care from Brendan.
I have been in the surgery with various members of my family and it never fails to impress me how Brendan and his staff have such a warm and friendly way with patients, whether children/elderly/professionals or the occasional famous footballer!
Although we aren’t currently Appletree’s nominated charity they have helped Downs Syndome Scotland many times over the years. We value their support – not just through our charity but as my family’s dentist.

Approaching my late 20’s, I had always wished that I had been offered orthodontics as a teenager. To be honest, the thought of metal ‘traintracks’ scared me away.
Dr Murphy spent at least half an hour discussing my options and I decided on Six Month Smiles to straighten my crooked teeth. I didn’t pay anything for his advice and was happy that they offered me a payment plan.
Dr Murphy straightened my bottom teeth in less than 5 months. Despite my assurances that I was happy with the top ones he persuaded me to persevere with upper braces for another 6 weeks.
I’ve been delighted that I accepted his advice – it’s the best decision I’ve ever made. Thanks to all the staff at Appletree.
