Magazine Focus

A couple of weeks back I mentioned I’d been interviewed by the Hyndland Heart magazine team. Well the piece is now out in print and online and here’s a chunk of it…I liked the headline. Many thanks to David and Ruth on the team for their interest…

Filling the Gaps

“Behind the chipboard-covered windows on Hyndland Road, near its corner with Clarence Drive, a quiet revolution in dental care is shaping up. State-of-the-art facilities with the latest developments in dental technology and sterilising techniques are promised, as the interior of a traditional main-door flat is transformed. Planned to open later this year, Philip Friel explains that tailoring a service around his patients’ busy lives has been uppermost in his mind as he plans the new facilities.

So don’t expect anything less than dynamism from this 32 year-old Glasgow University graduate who has, this year, been named by his peers to be among the Top 50 most influential dentists, in a poll published by Dentistry magazine. His position at 26 in the poll makes him the highest-ranking dentist in his field who is based in Scotland. He is particularly recognised as one of Scotland’s finest implant surgeons but also works with people who have experienced sports injuries and other traumas and says that “the difference we can make in improving their lives is significant”.

This passion for dentistry began in his teenage years, as a schoolboy at St Aloysius’ College, and led him to take degrees in anatomy and dental surgery. He now focuses his work on cosmetic dentistry and in particular dental implants. He is also happy to help patients maintain their healthy teeth.”
