* Pain Free Dentist, BDS Edin. 1982, GDC No. 56496
Mike Nisbet is one of Queen’s Drive’s most well established and highly esteemed dentists, who has looked after patients here for many years
With the aim of providing the best quality of service for each of his patients, Mike has always ensured that he keeps up with all the latest advancements in dentistry and that he uses the most up to date techniques and materials.
Most of his patients will be aware that Mike is a car enthusiast, as well as being focussed on keeping fit. So when he’s not in the surgery you’re likely to find him in the gym or at the racing circuit putting his car through its paces.
“I joined the practice in 1982, straight after qualifying from Edinburgh Dental School. At the time I felt (and still feel) fortunate to have been chosen to be Glen Heavenor’s trainee in what was then (and remains) one of the most advanced practices in Scotland. It has always been at the forefront of new processes and technologies, but also has a reputation for treatment aimed at providing long term care, not a short term fix.
It’s been a real privilege to have been able to work in this practice for my whole career, so that I have been able to treat the same patients over many years and then treat their children and (I can hardly believe it) their grandchildren. Honestly I’m not that old- these folk were married young!
Of course the practice, and I, have evolved and developed over the years that I have been here but every change has always been made with the interest of the patients in mind. And I am confident that our quality of service and genuine interest in the welfare of our patients will continue to be a defining feature of the practice for many years to come.
*Pain Free Dentist. GDC No. 273855
“I qualified as a dentist at University of Medicine Craiova, Romania in 2016. Last year I moved to Scotland and I am very happy with the decision because it is a very beautiful country with warm and friendly people.
I love dentistry and I love helping patients gain extra confidence. I am developing a special interest for cosmetic orthodontics and for that reason I got certified for Invisalign treatment.
As a person I will never stop doing what I love so I will always have my music, dancing or cooking. I look forward to meeting you.”
*Dental Hygeinist. GDC No. 3932
I qualified from Glasgow Dental Hospital in 1990, since then I have been working at Queen’s Drive Dental Practice which I enjoy very much.
I have a special interest in non surgical treatment of periodontal disease and the development of oral health within the practice. I have continued to widen my knowledge and skills with a variety of professional development courses. The latest one being facial aesthetics, and am very interested in the PRGF treatment which we are offering to our patients now.
In my spare time, well if I can find any, I like to try different beauty products and treatments. I must confess I am a little bit of a beauty junkie.
