Welcome to Philip Friel Advanced Dentistry in Glasgow



Named "Best Private Practice", "Practice of the Year - Scotland" and Scotland's and the UK's "Most Attractive Practice" in the prestigious Private Dentistry Awards 2011 and Dentistry Scotland Awards 2011, Philip Friel Advanced Dentistry clinic is highly regarded within the profession. The team was also named "Scotland Best Team" in the Dentistry Awards 2012.

Headed by Glasgow-based dentist Philip Friel, our team also includes some of the best and most highly experienced dentists and clinicians in Glasgow - Glen Frew, Elizabeth Glass, Jillian Clare, William McLean and Stuart MacLaren .

We are also now joined by  Imran Shafi, specialist orthodontist who is available for consultation for adult orthodontic treatment. To achieve the status of specialists Imran undertook additional years of full time post graduate training and were required to pass professional examinations. Like most orthodontic specialists, they treat only orthodontic patients and are therefore best placed to give optimal care and treatment.

All our clinical team are General Dental Council registered and details of their registration numbers are given in the Our Team section of the website.

We’ve created a 21st century Glasgow clinic offering our patients a welcoming environment designed to give them the very best experience from the moment they walk into our relaxing reception area.

There is no specialism in the field of dental implants - therefore a dentist can’t be called a specialist in dental implants.

Our Glasgow clinic has a particular focus on dental implants and dentist Philip Friel has undertaken many years of focused implant training and ongoing personal development in the area to ensure he can offer the best possible standard of patient treatment and care.

The Glasgow clinic was awarded the status of membership of The Leading Dental Centers of the World organisation in 2011.

Philip Friel was named in the 2010 list of the *Top 50 of the UK’s most influential dentists – a list co-ordinated by the presitigious Dentistry magazine. In describing Mr Friel, the Top 50 organisers said he is “regarded as one of Scotland’s finest implants surgeons” and added that he has “a deep knowledge and understanding of implantology from intensive study both in the UK and internationally”.

Philip Friel’s in-depth industry knowledge and medical understanding of implantalogy comes from years of intensive study both in the UK and internationally where he has worked alongside some of the global leaders in the implant field.

Although based in his West End clinic in Glasgow he also works in Edinburgh and Mr Friel also travels extensively throughout the UK and the world, in pursuit of knowledge about the latest advances in cosmetic dentistry and dental implants.

The judging panels usually comprise experienced dentists and others from the profession along with publication representatives.
We view the awards as a recognition of our high standards of patient treatment and care or, in some instances, a reflection of the facilities within our clinic.
The awards are regarded as marketing tools and not as professional qualifications.
