Our Experienced Team
At the forefront of digital dentistry
Only the best will do
Since winning the accolade of Scottish Dental Team of the Year in 2015, the Thistle Dental team has gone from strength to strength.
Vikram Kavi has worked tirelessly to gather together professionals with considerable experience and expertise to ensure that every patient is made to feel like royalty. After all, what’s the point of having a state-of-the-art, multi-disciplinary care centre if you don’t have the right team to support it?
Patient care is our priority
Thistle Dental offers a reliable and consistent level of care, from the beginning until the end of treatment and beyond. Our team is considerate, putting our patients first and going the extra mile for every one of them. Our practice has a professional and well-organised, yet upbeat, fun and approachable culture that immediately puts patients at ease.
Dr Kavi himself has been an implant dentist since 2004 and has placed more than 2,000 implants. As well as his own patients, Vikram has also been taking care of referring dentist's patients for over 5 years across the North East of Scotland.
Exceptional care, patient comfort and smile satisfaction are really important to us. This shows in our clinical success rates across the board, which are naturally high because our skilled team takes pride in taking such good care of patients.
As well as this, we have monthly governors’ meetings to review our success to ensure our high standards are being maintained.
Specialist dental care
As well as highly skilled clinicians, we are proud to have two specialist dentists on our team. Terry Lowe is a maxillofacial and oral surgeon with more than 14 years’ experience and Roy Gordon Smith has a wealth of knowledge and experience in orthodontics having 40 years’ service under his belt.
We promote the best treatments for our patients in a very discreet way, fully explaining the best treatment for their situation in simple language. Our team’s knowledge and the training they have undergone gives them the confidence to talk about treatments in a gentle, informative manner, taking time and care to explain all treatment options.
Thistle Dental is the most technically advanced practice in North East Scotland, offering patients unrivalled high-tech dental expertise and care.
Our founder and principal dentist, Vikram Kavi, has handpicked a team of well-trained, experienced specialist dentists and clinicians to support his mission of providing the best service and outcomes.
Our implantologist Vikram Kavi is very experienced with all major implant systems. He favours Dentsply Ankylos implants, which have 25 years’ proven results for being solid, stable, reliable and natural looking.
