Dr. Bert Hay used to be our family dentist and we knew he was very good at his job, so it was nice to know that the service at Inspire Dental would be great! Everyone at the practice was very polite and professional, and there was always a warm welcome to the practice. I got the Fastbraces treatment and I am very pleased with the results! My teeth are much easier to keep clean now and the straight smile is an added bonus.

I would definitely recommend Inspire Dental to friends. All the staff were friendly and the work done was to a very high standard

Had work done on my front tooth which had always looked unsightly for many years. It looked like new when it was finished and delighted with the result!
The staff are so helpful and friendly that going to the dentist is a pleasure, would highly recommend Inspire.

HDP provided us with comprehensive dental care at an affordable monthly payment. I was so happy with Inspire I recommended both my sons to do the same.
Mr C.V. (Kingussie)

I had a filling done on my front tooth today, as old one was discoloured and was aware when I smiled it didn’t look great. It looks great so delighted with the results. Thank you.
All lovely and so helpful, and really helpful with advice to keep my teeth good for many years to come!
My teeth are looking the best in years.
Geraldine Cassidy

I find the whole staff team that I have dealt with very welcoming and friendly. It has certainly made my dental experience a much better one, as my past dental experience in my younger years was horrendous. Thank you

I have recently had treatment at Inspire Dental and I must say I had an extraordinary experience here. All staff were really friendly and professional, reception, dental nurse and dentist. All my questions were answered and they made me feel confident and at ease at all times, as well as in control. I was involved in my treatment planning and treatment options were discussed with me. I would happily go back in the future as I really enjoyed my time here and I am very happy with the results. Highly recommended!

First of all, many thanks for all of your time, I really enjoyed the experience. I would just like to say that I am immensely happy with my treatments received and I feel as though I have the mouth of a teenager again, with perfect teeth. You put me at ease and I believe you treat all patients with the same care and attention. I would have no hesitation in recommending you and your team. I was made so welcome from the first time I stepped through the door until the end of my treatments. So thank you all so very much for making my smile SPARKLE.

I recently became a patient at Inspire Dental and wanted to leave a review as I am so delighted with the treatment I experienced there. I am quite a nervous patient however the Dentist Niall was very patient and took the time to put me at ease. He explained the procedure so that I knew what to expect. The surgery itself is very welcoming and well decorated. A really welcoming but professional environment.

Both my husband and I have complete confidence in Bert Hay. He involves patients in all decisions about their treatment. X-rays are viewed and explained and treatment options discussed. Mr Hay uses all the latest techniques and materials. He takes a great pride in his work and is meticulous in his attention to detail. The practice atmosphere is friendly and relaxed and as a nervous patient, going to the dentist is no longer a worrying experience.

This has got to be the best dental experience I have ever had and I only wish they had been around 30+ years ago!! Wonderful professionalism, so very caring and supportive. I can’t praise them highly enough and would highly recommend this dental practice to the whole world!!

Fantastic team and brilliant with my Autistic son.
Louise Gamble – (5 star Facebook review)

I wouldn’t let anyone else look after my teeth! Bert has looked after my teeth for over 8 years now and is an outstanding dentist. He has always taken time to explain things to me and put me at my ease and I completely trust him 100%. The whole team at Inspire Dental are a delight and an outstanding example of fantastic customer service. Thank you to you Bert and your whole team for looking after me so well and I would recommend you and your practice without hesitation.

10 out of 10!

Thanks for making the visit to the dentist easy and relaxed. Everyone was lovely a lot of time spent on me, with fillings and scale and polish and advice as well. Highly recommend.

Thank you again
Geraldine Cassidy

Looking for a family friendly practice, then this is the place!

We were made to feel very welcome from the start by the staff who are all extremely professional and friendly. Our 4 year old daughter loves coming here and is more than keen to see Bert Hay on her own if she could! He is very clear in his explanation to her (and me) of what he is doing, is quick but very thorough.

Our experience is also very good, my husband needed a bit of work doing and all the appointments were made to suit him fitting around his job. We aren’t uncomfortable discussing our treatment or asking any questions, therefore never feel pushed into having anything done.

The atmosphere is relaxing, the waiting room comfortable with toys for the little ones. I have to agree with another comment that this feels more like a social event rather than a “must go to the dentist” visit.

That this practice is open 7 days is fantastic and we can thoroughly recommend it.
Catherine Ledger

I’d just like to say Thank you to Niall and Louise for looking after me today… It wasn’t a good day today and my nerves got the better of me but you were both brilliant as usual and I need not have worried, never felt a thing 🙂

After successful treatment and care at Inspire Dental, Kingussie, I am delighted to endorse the friendly, professional service I received from all the team in Inspire’s modern, welcoming practice.
Bob Powell

Excellent dentist, although am always scared, they put me at ease. Thank you don’t know what I’d do without you x

Just joined the practice, great first visit. Friendly, caring staff. Thank you!

Thank you Bert – (and Team) for your quiet re-assurance – you’re the best – AMAZING! I love my two front teeth –  feels like Christmas came early this year!!!
Karen Morgan

Great staff. Great service…and great craic! Having a good dental team on side helps make an otherwise unpleasant experience, all the easier. I have total faith in Niall and his team which means that I don’t have to dread my appointments – in fact, the friendly attitude and the down to earth atmosphere in the surgery means that most of the time, its more of a ‘social’ appointment anyway! Keep up the good work! 🙂
Calum Urquhart – (5 star Google review)

By far the best dentist I have ever been too! All the staff are really kind and friendly. Procedures are always well explained before they are done. Would definitely recommend this dentist to anyone as they wouldn’t find a better one out there 🙂
Iain Johnson – (5 star Google review)

First Class service. I broke a tooth late Saturday night, phoned INSPIRE DENTAL & managed to get an appointment Sunday afternoon, how amazing is that!
This dental practice is inspirational in it’s outlook to patient care comfort and service.

I thoroughly recommend the expertise and the level of professional service offered by Mr Hay and his team in Kingussie. A couple of years ago I completed a course of treatment which included implants and some crowns. I am extremely happy with the finished results. Having this dental work done has made an enormous difference to my life. I can laugh and smile with confidence and I can enjoy all my favourite crunchy foods. If there is anyone out there who is thinking of embarking on similar treatments, and would appreciate more information from someone who has been through the process, then please ask Bert and I will happily talk to you (and show you my smile!)

I made my choice to visit Kingussie Dental Practice because of young enthusiastic team running a well set up business. My experience with the treatment and care taken of my first visit was faultless. I had two pain free fillings. I have no hesitation in recommending your Dental Practice to any of my friends.
Pavel Satny – (5 star Google review)

The Kingussie Dental Practice has had a great make over. Inspire Dental offers a really friendly, welcoming and contemporary space. I had a totally and highly professional initial consultation with a follow up visit which has given me a confident red carpet smile.
Marcus DF White

Service & treatment very good. Staff knowledgeable & attentive. Relaxing & cheerful environment.
B.F. Newtonmore

How would your rate your experience of the practice and our team?: Very good 🙂
What treatment did you have done and what have the results been so far?: I had a crown replaced, I am normally nervous about receiving dental treatment, but was reassured before and during treatment and it was a lot better than I thought it was going to be 🙂
Would you recommend us to friends?: Already have done
Anything else ? The dental practice is looking brighter and more welcoming since it has had a face lift.
Satisfied Dental Patient

A few words to express my thanks.

Having had a fear of dentists which arose from childhood experiences I was a wee bit worried about visiting the dentist again, so much so I know I really left if too late for my all important check ups. However, I cannot thank Inspire Dental enough for making me feel at ease and then increasing my confidence to go on and complete some much needed work. The newly decorated practice and professional branding also gives it a modern feel and that helped me too. All in all I found the whole team to be highly professional, welcoming and friendly. I can wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone. I like my teeth now!

Happy New Year to you and all at Inspire Dental. Many thanks again and I look forward to seeing you again for my next check up.

Had a great holiday. Thanks a lot for the 1st Class dental treatment I had. Also to all the nice girls. Have had no problems with new teeth.

Nothing lasts forever, not even one’s teeth but with attention and good expert care it is amazing how long they can be made to last before going down the path of false teeth.

I have found that ‘Inspire-dental’ have raised the bar with regard to providing a very professional dental service in a new state of the art surgery at Kingussie.

I noticed that much has been done to make children more at ease in what to them can be frightening surroundings……. little fishes in a tank to greet you…….a T.V. in the waiting room with a channel for all tastes and ages………..and a dental chair in bright pink with a cuddly toy sitting smiling nearby.

My last visit was only for a check up, but it was more extensive than I have ever noticed before. Besides the expected gum and tooth inspection also included was an ‘MOT’ of my jaw action, tongue mobility and general health check. Information feedback was great I felt that I understood all the options offered and could come to the right decisions for me.

Keep up the good work.

I have been attending the Kingussie practice for many years. Mr Longstaff did some sterling work on my teeth over the years. Niall has continued this good work and his relaxing style is to be complimented, as well as his ability to explain exactly what he is doing.
In addition, I must congratulate all the other staff on their efficient, friendly manner. The new décor and style of the practice is most refreshing.
C, Newtonmore

Thank you, Bert! Love my new smile. Feel more confident now. Will happily recommend you & your wonderfully friendly staff!
M.R. (Facebook Recommendation)

I chose to remain with the practice in its new form. I have been going there for many years, from away back in Mr Barley’s time.

I find my recent experience very reassuring. No treatment, just for the sake of treatment, was suggested at this time. I very much appreciate this approach, and I liked the way I was kept in the picture about everything. So far I’ve only had a checkup followed by a clean and polish which was thorough but not too vigourous, in consideration of the fragile state of my teeth! I was given some useful advice and had a helpful discussion. Thank you, Bert, for your attitude to a very apprehensive patient.

I thought the premises had been done up very pleasingly, fresh and modern, but not starkly clinical or aggressively modern. I would certainly recommend the practice to friends.
A Kingussie Patient

A positive experience. Friendly but professional atmosphere. Lora is lovely – she made me feel at ease on my first visit to the new practice.

I have regular check ups and with Bert’s guidance I have improved my general oral health.
I feel more confident when I smile.

Just carry on with what you are doing but I need a written assurance that you will never leave the Highlands. Lol!

I have recently moved a considerable distance away but I did not even consider changing my dentist. Bert has been fantastic. I have a phobia of the dentist which goes back to childhood but Bert has been so patient with me, that I keep regular appointments and no longer fear the dentist like I used to. I am even considering replacing some filings as I am confident that Bert will make it as stress free for me as possible. I simply wouldn’t go anywhere else.
A very happy patient

How would you rate your experience? – Excellent
Would you recommend us to friends? – YES
What impact has it had on your life? – Happy

Niall and his team are very pleasant and most helpful in every way. I am very happy to be with Inspire Dental.
Mrs M (Kingussie Patient)

I have been at the Gynack St practice for years and was a bit nervous when it all changed. However, there was no need to. It’s wonderful now. The waiting area is decorated really well and tasteful. My dentist puts me at ease right away and the rest of the team are helpful and caring. I have had to undergo a lot of treatment. What comes over, is they never rush things and they explain what’s being done. For the first time in ages I don’t have to put my hand over my mouth when speaking. They gave me back my smile. I would recommend you to everyone.
Mrs M (Kingussie Patient)

I moved to Kingussie to follow Bert. I like his care and attention, his manner and his humour.
The premises are lovely. I like the colours you chose and the layout seems good. Staff are helpful, friendly and welcoming.
I like the matching named uniforms. When you wear that you are accountable!!
I would recommend to friends.
Mrs H

Experience: “First class!!”
Impact on life: “Much Better.”
Would you recommend us: “DEFINITELY”

“Lovely staff the waiting room and surgery nice and bright decor is lovely. Nothing is too much trouble for anyone in this practice thank you so much.”

I have been with the Kingussie dental practice since 1961. Throughout that time I have had nothing but the best care for my teeth and oral hygiene.
Now Inspire Dental has taken over, I have every confidence that this care and attention will continue. I am so pleased that we have not lost this wonderful service at this end of the valley. My teeth have always been very important to me, but going to “the dentist” has always been a nerve racking experience! However Niall and the girl always are calm and explain what is going on and do an excellent job as painlessly as possible!! I am proud to say that with all the care I have had from “my dentist” I have no false teeth in my mouth!! I would have no hesitation in recommending Inspire Dental to anybody who needs caring dentist.
All the best to you all for a very bright future in Kingussie.
A happy patient

It was a delightful surprise on the recent visit to find everything and everyone glowing in the refurbished premises, so tastefully done.
Miss M

We were very happy with our treatment at Aviemore and quite upset when we heard Bertie had left, and as we wished to continue with our dentist, when we read that Bertie was opening his own practice in Kingussie we were quite prepared to travel the extra distance.
We are very pleased with our treatment and the professional welcoming manner provided by Bertie and his team.
It also means I get 2 extra days out a year, albeit to Kingussie!!
We would most certainly recommend you to our friends, which we have done already.
So good luck to you all and hope it will be a very successful practice.
Nethybridge couple

I would thank you for your letter of 8th October and write to say how impressed I was with the new decor at your surgery. As I used to live in Kingussie I had decided to stay with your practice and I can assure you I have not regretted that decision. I was very happy with your treatment and will certainly keep returning to your practice for my future dental care.
Perthshire Patient

Very friendly and professional in every way. I would recommend this practice and Mr Hay unreservedly.
MR J.P – (5 star Dentist Finder review)

Bert Hay is a brilliant dentist who has looked after my teeth superbly for the last ten years or so.Always ahead of the curve with technical advancement , with pain control…well there is none…you don’t even feel injections…and prolonging the life of aged teeth to the very maximum and when they do go, his impressions leading to caps or plates are superb.
MR H.F. – (5 star Dentist Finder review)

I chose Inspire Dental in order to guarantee access to professional dental services as and when needed and to provide ongoing dental assessment and preventive care. My objectives have subsequently been met for a considerable number of years. Treatments have included fillings and crowns along with attention from a hygienist as and when required. The treatment I have received has undoubtedly been the basis of good dental health over many years. Staff have always been pleasant, courteous and outstandingly professional. I would recommend Inspire Dental to others.

Great Dental Practice. From entering into a clean modern clinic and receiving a warm welcome the rest is easy! The treatment which I received has been professional and caring and I cannot stop recommending Inspire Dental Practice to everyone.

Thank you and I wish you every success for the future.
JG – Newtonmore

Excellent experience. Very punctual. Would certainly recommend. At our age – we still have our own teeth!! Keep going as you are.
Mr & Mrs M

Dear Inspire Dental Team
I would like to say how happy I’ve been with my recent treatment. I had previously been with Bert and had always been very satisfied with my treatments. Therefore I was delighted to hear that Inspire Dental had started a practice in Kingussie.
I had my teeth cleaned and checked over last week and the friendly staff helped me get over my nerves. I would certainly recommend you to my friends and will continue to use your dental practice in the future.
A Carrbridge patient

What can I say, Bert and the Team at Inspire Dental are simply fab. The kids love him (and the fish), and we always get first class treatment. No tantrums or traumas, I can honestly say we really do enjoy our trips to the Dentist. 
See you in six months.
T Alliod

Great practice, lovely local staff who really care about their patients. Luckily I live in Kingussie, so I can walk to the practice, but, I’d be willing to drive miles for this sort of care and service from a dentist!
Mrs M.R – (5 star Dentist Finder review)

Just a wee note to thank you for taking care of me.
I’ve been attending Niall Neeson for a wee while now and always found him very relaxed, helpful and reassuring.
I’ve had fillings, x-rays and checkups. Just because I was ‘National Health’ I felt I got great care taken just the same if I’d paid a lot of money.
I would certainly recommend ‘My Wee Irish Chap’ as I think he is great!
PS. Waiting room, surgery, and girls are great.
MD, Kingussie

Was here on Tuesday evening and can totally recommend and that is coming from someone who is a fearty when it comes to going to the dentist. Had a big filling done and never felt a thing.
MS – Facebook recommendation

Very pleased to be confident again about visiting the dentist………… YAHOO !
CC, Facebook recommendation

Experience of the practice……First class
I have already highly recommended several friends and family.
The improvements to the waiting room, the new furniture and decor make us feel valued and not taken for granted.
Best wishes for a successful future.
