Good morning and very Happy New Year to everyone at the Dunkeld Practice. I would just like to say how very very pleased I have been with the recent treatment I have received from Stephanie Johnston. Stephanie and all the team have been extremely professional and very very pleasant.
From the first phone call I have been made to feel very welcome and everything has been done to put me at ease. My husband has also become a new patient and he was very impressed with his first check up as time was taken to explain things to him. I have already recommended the practice to one of my friends – it doesn’t get any better than that.
Hi, I just wanted to share my thoughts on a recent visit to the hygienist at IBLU. I have lived in many places, both at home and abroad, and yesterday was the first time I have left an appointment smiling. Lisa’s manner, tool work and advice was the best I have ever received. I would go as far as to say it was a pleasure! Thank you!
If I could rate this place higher then I absolutely would.
I have always hated my teeth. They were crooked, discoloured and worn down. I was embarrassed to show my teeth in photos, and very rarely showed my teeth in general.
Infinity Blu have completely transformed my smile, and I can’t thank Carolynne enough for the amazing job she has done (and in such a fast time, my front four teeth were built in an hour!).
I have had 2 root canals, a filling and my front teeth built up, and I didn’t feel a thing, if anyone is worried about pain, these are the guys to go and see.
There really isn’t a single thing I could fault Infinity Blu on. The building is lovely, everything is nice and stylish, but the real jewel in the crown (pardon the pun) is the staff. Each and every one of them, from the reception, to the dental nurses, to the dentists, are just so nice and put you completely at ease. Each and every one of them is a credit to the company.
Thank you again Infinity Blu, you saved my smile!
Thank you for giving me my smile back! Excellent, friendly service from Bruce and Jenna.
Stephanie is just brilliant, so thoughtful, kind and caring. I’m so glad that I have moved over to your Dunkeld practise, so are all my kids, they are actually surprisingly looking forward to their next visit! Cannot fault any of the staff btw all very courteous. Just what you expect from a professional practice.
I cannot tell you how delighted I am with the finished result of my treatment.
I don’t think anyone believes me when I tell them it was completely painless!
You and you staff have been wonderful, so caring, supportive and encouraging – I wish I had it done years ago!
Thank you so much for your gentle professionalism.
All the best with your new ventures, LR
Stephanie is just brilliant, so thoughtful, kind and caring. I’m so glad that I have moved over to your Dunkeld practice, so are all my kids, they are actually surprisingly looking forward to their next visit!
Cannot fault any of the staff – all very courteous. Just what you expect from a professional practice.
Stephanie’s approach is compassionate, and person centered. She clearly explains the dental treatment you require and how she is going to do it. Throughout the treatment she is very gentle and caring. I have no hesitation recommending Stephanie or the practice. Everyone is amazing!
Over the last two months of 2017 I had dental work done by Chris to renew top set crowns and veneers plus two new required bridges and I am really thrilled with the result.
My teeth are honestly gorgeous even though I say so myself! I am no longer young but in my prime and as you get older, the teeth begin to lose their youthful appeal – but not me now.
Thank you so much Chris – we are extremely fortunate now in Highland Perthshire to have a dentist of your skills, thoroughness and care.
I was recommended Infinityblu in Dunkeld by a friend, I live in Perth but travel up, it is often quicker than driving into town and getting a car parking space in Perth!
Everyone in the practice is so friendly and professional.
The place itself is so modern and clean. Stephen is my dentist and I can’t recommend him enough, I’m a nervous patient and the whole team are making coming to the dentist bearable!!
Thank you so much Chris for all your care in providing my new smile – I don’t have to hide from the camera now!
To be complimented on my teeth is a credit to your hard work, which is much appreciated. Enjoy the wine!
This is the third occasion that I’ve visited Infinityblu. I’ve always been apprehensive of the dentist, however the ladies immediately put me at ease. Very warm welcome from Emma. My dentist Stephanie and the dental nurse made me feel very relaxed, everything was explained thoroughly, and the work performed efficiently.
I am happy to highly recommend Infinity Blue.
Brilliant customer service and treatment from the Dunkeld branch today. Stephanie and Emma were really great. The best ever dental experience! And thanks for the cuppa while waiting
The practice is very well run from appointment making to treatment. Staff are very pleasant. Steph my assigned Dentist made me feel at ease talking me through my treatment as she went along giving me a clear understanding about my treatment and further plans. She was very understanding towards my anxiety overall very pleased.
Out of all the dentists I have seen Steph is 10/10.
I had some treatments done in May after not being to a dentist for about 23 years. I have such a fear, always had to attend the dental hospital. Stephen was absolutely brilliant kept me so calm at every appointment and the staff are the same. The lady who was the receptionist on my last appointment could see a was shaking a bit when I came out of the surgery she sat me down offered me a glass of water she walked me across to my car which was parked across the street from the surgery where my husband was supposed to be. He wasn’t – he had gone for a walk. She offered to take me back to the surgery and sit down and wait. I said I would just lean against the car to get some fresh air. Thank you
I wish to thank you Stephen for the excellent care and attention you provided for me today. I felt in very safe and proficient hands and your reassuring manner also helped greatly.
Thanks Chris and team firstly, for giving me my smile and confidence back and secondly, for the continual great service.
Every time I leave Infinityblu, I leave with a beaming smile!
I’ve also see the practice hygienist Gail regularly, the treatment is always incredibly thorough and painless.
After years of hiding my teeth when I smiled, Chris carried out a couple of simple procedures which included tooth whitening and discolored veneer replacement – the result being a confident smile and I’m at last proud of my teeth!
Brilliant dentist, very friendly staff. Make you feel welcome.
Simply the best.
First class service and wonderful staff.
This dental practice is outstanding- professional but friendly, and I have the utmost faith. I can find no fault.
Kind, gentle, considerate, professional and excellent at what they so.
Thanks to everyone at Infinityblu I can smile with confidence again. A great practice.
Brilliant staff and great treatment. Highly recommended!!
The best dentists ever!!
My dentist Ailsa and dental nurse were brilliant. Genuinely lovely and very helpful. They kept making sure I was ok throughout the whole treatment and made something rather unpleasant bearable. There were a few complications but I was still out quickly, and my tooth felt great almost right away. I always hate the numb feeling but it wore off nice and quick and caused me no issue at all.
Reception staff were also great and it’s a very relaxed but professional practice. I also liked the windows in the ceiling (it was a lovely day so actually got to see a blue sky!)
Brilliant staff and great treatment. Highly recommended!!
Thank you for giving me the perfect smile!!
After not being to a dentist for 5+ years due to fear/bad experience, I cannot recommend Stephanie enough. Everything happened as she said it would which was so reassuring, calming and put me very much at ease.
I didn’t even feel nervous before coming in for my extraction today
It seems crazy to say root canal treatment was outstanding…but it was.
I was very nervous and unsure – not helped with people telling me how awful it was! – but, the IBLU team were calm, talked me through each stage, made sure I was comfortable at all times and carried out a successful treatment.
It was at no point excruciating and I felt very confident in Kirsty and the lovely Dental Nurse.
Chris and his team worked hard to restore my confidence after some damaging experiences elsewhere.
I am now back on the rails and hugely value the care I have received from them all. My remedial work is completed and my insurance plan gives me the comfort of assured cover at an affordable cost.
Dental care at its very best.
From teenage years I have always been a regular visitor to the dentist. My dentist at the time predicted that I would have no teeth by the age of 25. However here I am at 70+ with a reasonable mouthful. This is a tribute to the many dentists I have seen over the years, none more so than Chris Barrowman.
Before moving to Dunkeld I lived in Edinburgh and had good dental treatment there. For a number of years, it was personally convenient to travel there on a regular basis. That came to an end and I spent some time casting around for a quality way forward. It was then that a friend recommended Infinityblu.
The staff are excellent and the surgery is relaxing and of a high standard. Visiting the dentist is generally not the most relaxing thing to do but these qualities are a big help in putting patients at ease.
All the treatment received has been excellent with absolutely no follow on problems I have no hesitation in recommending infinityblu to friends and have already done so on a number of occasions.
I followed Chris Barrowman from his previous practice as I was so pleased with the treatment I had with him there.
The surgery in Pitlochry is excellent with a very relaxed atmosphere (Just what I need!). The staff are cheerful and friendly and put me at ease the moment I walk through the door.
I have had two implants inserted which was actually quite painless, not what I had expected. I am thrilled to bits with the outcome and I now have the confidence to smile properly. Fortunately, I haven’t needed more than a scale & polish since then, but it’s great to be so well looked after.
I have, and will continue, to recommend the practice especially to anyone like me who used to be nervous – but not anymore!
I saw an advert in Newsround North last year starting a new Dentist was starting up in Pitlochry and so I put my name down having lived for years in misery with ill fitting dentures. Within weeks I was accepted on the list, but could not keep first offered appointment as I was away on holiday, but in return got another appointment with Carolynne Wells and she is now my favourite person of all time!!!
The receptionists are immaculate and cheerful, as is Carolynne’s dental nurse; the practice is spotlessly clean and well situated. I had four appointments for fittings for new dentures, every two weeks, and did not realise my mouth could be as comfortable as it is and for the first time in 20 years I ate a Lamb Chop last week!!!
In the past, I have had two sets of dentures from two different dentists and returned for numerous visits, but never any improvement, and I just learned to live with a mouthful of ulcers and not eating anything which required much chewing……………. and then……………… I met Carolynne. Not only was the cost only 25% of what I was charged six years ago but my dentures fit my mouth.
I cannot praise the practice highly enough, and apart from putting it on News at Ten, have told every listening ear about the difference in my life and have highly recommended to umpteen people already. Long may you stay in business and continue to make a difference to people’s lives.
I wish you every success.
Through personal recommendation from a work college and my daughter, I came to the surgery due to an unsightly cosmetic problem Staff are super smiley and on the ball!!!
The seating area is comfortable with TV and assorted magazines. Carolynne has done my Botox treatment twice now and I am 100% happy, calm, cool and collected, which is very good when you’re a bit of a twit about needles. I feel the results are stunningly natural.
I have also had extensive cosmetic dentistry and no longer feel ashamed of my smile and would, and have, recommended IBLU to my friends
A couple of days into a coast to coast walking holiday last year 2011 I was awoken at my guesthouse in a severe amount of dental pain which was clearly demanding some immediate attention. The problem had arisen from a recently replaced crown that had come loose after almost 40 years in situ. A few weeks earlier my regular dentist back home in London had reaffixed this using pins and these were gradually impacting on the nerve.
At that guesthouse, in May 2011 it seemed that my Loch Rannoch location was pretty remote and the chances of finding a dentist locally would be equally remote. I couldn’t continue my holiday with the pain. My options were to return home to London but I really didn’t want to do this. Or travel to Glasgow to find a dentist which would mean I’d lose at least a couple of days. What to do? When I explained all this to my hosts a solution to the problem was quickly worked out. There was a good dentist in Pitlochry and there was a bus to Pitlochry which stopped just outside their guesthouse.
A quick call was made to the dentist Chris Barrowman at Infinityblu and he agreed to see me at short notice that afternoon as an emergency case, excellent!
Chris is exceptional, reassuring and proficient. He sorted the problem, removed the pain and told me that I could continue with my holiday. Wonderful! He said that I would probably need follow up root canal work but not immediately. So this year when I had my annual check-up in London and my dentist told me that I’d need the root canal I decided to return to Scotland and Chris at Infinityblu in Pitlochry who was clearly the man to finish the job. And he did. Splendidly. The practice is modern and relaxed and the support staff are extremely welcoming and friendly. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the practice to others.
Thank you very much for your patience and professionalism in returning my smile and confidence. Much appreciated!
I have been delighted with the care and consideration I have received from Dr Barrowman and his staff, and would have no hesitation in recommending IBLU to my friends.
IBLU dental was recommended to me by my own dental practice. After nearly 8 years of wearing an ill fitting bridge which discoloured my teeth, I was desperate to explore other alternatives. After attending a consultation appointment, to which I was greeted with a smile and put at ease by the friendly staff, together we decided that a dental implant was the best avenue of treatment for me.
Due to a tight timescale for me, Chris was very kind and rearranged his week for me to have the initial procedure carried out only 3 days after my consultation. The procedure itself was carried out in a very skilful, professional manner, yet the relaxed attitude of the staff made it seem less if an ordeal to a nervous patient.
Throughout my healing time, Chris and the staff were on hand, both on the phone and through regular checkups, to ensure that everything was as it should be. When the time finally came to have my new tooth fitted, I could not have been happier with the result. It was not until that point I realised how much of an impact it was going to have. I am now able to eat and chew properly, without the worry of dislodging the tooth, and most importantly, I am able to smile without the discolouration caused by the bridge that I had for so long.
I can truly say that Chris and the team at IBLU have restored my confidence in my smile. I would recommend the practice to anyone looking to have cosmetic dental work carried out.
It is all the truth. You are all wonderful! It sounds so silly, but I got so much joy from being able to bite down into an apple and eat chewy sweets. Most importantly though; I can smile and show my teeth!
I am delighted to write about my experiences at Infinityblu.
When we moved to the area some four years ago, you were highly recommended by our friends and neighbours. From the moment we set foot in the door, we were made to feel welcome and relaxed by the reception staff, and the waiting room is stylish and impeccable.
The dental surgery is the most modern I have seen, and everything is of the highest standard and equipped with up-to-date technology.
Every step of the procedure is explained, and there is always a choice of treatment for you to make. You feel involved which is important, and in very safe hands.
I have started treatment for an implant, and I can honestly say that the surgical procedure was painless! Indeed I found it most interesting to hear all the technical data in the background.
This dental practice is outstanding- professional but friendly, and I have the utmost faith in Dr Barrowman and his team- I can find no fault.
I have been a patient of Infinityblu for over 3-4 years now and would thoroughly recommend the practice.
Having always been a little anxious about visiting dentists up until now, the treatment I received from Infinityblu was exceptional. Chris and his team around him made me feel very comfortable and relaxed.
The treatment itself was very much a calming experience, miles from the traditional fear of “a visit to the dentist
Since your practice opened in Pitlochry in 2007, I had only heard rave reviews and praise from folk I knew who had joined up. So, in 2011, I did the same.
The team is so kind and welcoming – and the surroundings are sparkly, pristine and cheerful.
Chris has been a star- I am delighted with the outcome of the two repair fillings I needed- using modern equipment and materials he has given me the confidence to allow for regular scale and polishes.
I would, and do, unreservedly recommend Infinityblu Dental Care
I had all my black teeth replaced with lovely white ones. I fell in love with my new teeth! (I can’t believe they are mine).
Everyone at Infinityblu is lovely and friendly. I am so happy I went there.
I saw an advert for IBLU in a local magazine and having just moved to the village of Birnam, I was not yet registered with a dentist. Unfortunately, one of my front crowns fell out and I needed to have it repaired urgently. I phoned Infinityblu to see if there would be a dentist available who would be prepared to see me at such short notice and especially with me not being registered. I explained the situation to the lady at the reception who was very understanding and she managed to get me an appointment for an emergency repair. The staff couldn’t have been more welcoming and the dentist couldn’t have been more reassuring if he tried. For me, arriving at a new dentist with a front tooth missing was going to be such an embarrassing event, but I wasn’t made to feel embarrassed in any way. As soon as I walked through the door I was welcomed with a smile and the practice itself made me feel at ease with its modern fresh look and its immaculate appearance.
It turned out that an old hockey injury which happened over 20 years ago was back to haunt me. It appeared that the bone in my gum had been deteriorating over the years and there was now very little bone left to hold my crowns in place. Chris explained various methods of treatment and advised in his professional opinion what would suit me best. After lengthy discussions, but under no pressure, I chose to get 2 dental implants in the front and had to have bone augmentation treatment as well. I genuinely expected to have this done at the dental hospital, but it was done at the practice. I couldn’t believe that I had the bone augmentation treatment and had 7 stitches in my gum without feeling a thing. Chris and the dental assistant were extremely reassuring during the whole procedure and I felt relaxed and was confident that I was in good hands (my teeth and smile mean the world to me).
I am absolutely delighted with the outcome of my treatment and couldn’t praise the staff anymore if I tried. I can’t believe how much more confident I am when I smile, my only regret is that I wished I had known about IBLU years ago. I would confidently recommend IBLU to anyone. I have since moved away from Birnam and now travel almost 100 miles to IBLU. I don’t look at the journey as being an onerous one, but do look at it as being a pleasant one and surprisingly enough I actually look forward to going to the dentist now.
So a big THANK YOU to IBLU!
I wouldn’t see the dentist as an enjoyable experience but with IBLU it’s as close as it can get………..a very friendly place with good solid dental care
I have had nightmare dental problems since a small child. My first introduction to toothbrushes was at the age of 15 when visiting a friend and asking her what she used these small brushes for?
I seldom smiled, ashamed of my teeth, for over the years they had been replaced with every kind of tooth dentists made, my mouth was a mess. I hid behind my hands when smiling.
I visited IBLU out of curiosity, the modern appearance of the surgery and treatment rooms, the friendly staff helped me feel that I was in a dentists with modern equipment and young dentists using modern techniques. I was not disappointed, after several consultations we decided to have implants.
Now that I have implants that fit my mouth, look good and are comfortable in my mouth, my confidence has returned, I can laugh and smile without the need to hold my hands in front of my mouth.
With implants, eating food has become a pleasure again, even eating apples!!
Having been once described by a professor at Edinburgh Dental Hospital as ‘the sort of interesting patients we like to see’ I have had treatment in the UK, Australia and South Africa to a very good standard.
I must say that my experiences at your practice have been the best of all in every way- from the actual treatment which was always extremely thorough and the dentures which have been effective, comfortable and better than the expensive bridges I have had in the past.
The ambience of the practice is first class and a great credit to you and your team who really make the patient welcome. It is really good that Pitlochry and district now has a facility for first class dental treatment.
All the staff at Infinityblu are really friendly, which is great if you are like me and don’t like the dentist! I have always gone to the dentist and have the evidence from my childhood where all my back teeth were ﬁlled with the dreaded amalgam and when you get to 40 something they all start falling apart.
Anyway, after a few visits to Chris and a few ﬁllings later we had a chat about a better ﬁx for my teeth. I was clenching and grinding my jaw when asleep, the back teeth and fillings were breaking down and my bite was a bit odd. Flossing was continuously required because all the gaps between my teeth were getting bigger and more and more food was being trapped. I was having a lot of issues with my teeth and it was a constant battle.
The solution which Chris presented was to replace all the crowns and ﬁllings in my back teeth with Lava Crowns to achieve a better bite and stop the clenching. After considerable thought I decided to go ahead with the work.
The Lava Crowns are great and a really good colour match for my teeth – in fact you wouldn’t know they are crowns. (no more black ﬁllings or shadows)
Chris was very patient with someone who ﬂinches at the least sign of pain.
That was 2 years ago, I have since needed no more work done, the clenching as gone, the ﬂossing is reduced to normal, and my teeth cause me no more bother in fact I don’t even think about them.
I would highly recommend Chris and his team even if you don’t like the dentist!
Having had a very bad experience as a 16 year old I was very wary of visiting dentists, this was compounded some years later by another dentist. From then on I only visited the dentist when the pain became too much, which was not often.
In later years, my teeth began to fall out on their own free will, not good.
I happened to see and advert for possible patients to register with a new practice in Pitlochry, Infinityblu. I applied and was accepted.
So, after some 50 years, I visited a dentist.
After explaining my fears, the dentist, Carolynne, could not have been more calming. From there on in I could not have been happier. Carolynne was straight to the point and explained everything in great detail.
It did involve having all the remaining teeth removed, which, by that point I was more than happy with.
Having had a set fitted and checked by Carolynne, I can only say a much heartfelt thank you to everyone at Infinityblu, to Carolynne, the receptionist, everybody.
I can now eat anything and everything that I was gradually crossing off the list with the bad teeth, and now no pain.
I’ve admitted to all at the practice this was something that should have been done years ago, but without the confidence and trust given to me by Carolynne and the staff, I, simply put, could not have done.
I was ashamed and embarrassed of my teeth, many of them were broken and the rest badly stained.nt.
People noticed – some commented.
I did not really know what to do about them, so, of course, I did nothing.
At a Christmas fair I was given an Infinityblu brochure; the team were there giving advice and offering a prize draw of free tooth whitening. My first appointment I was ashamed to go in, but never once criticised for letting my teeth get so bad, I only received positive information. I was given a treatment plan where all procedures and costs were laid out.
One year later. Beautiful teeth, confidence, comfort, and a good relationship with my dentist.
I saw your advert in the local paper. I was very pleased with the work you carried out, am very happy with the results and have recommended the practice to several of my friends
I was recommended to Infinityblu over a year ago. I had not been to the dentist since 1979! I was absolutely petrified. Worried about what might be found. Assuming the worst.
I plucked up the courage and I am so glad I did.
Chris and all the staff, Jenny, Moira then later on in the year, Jane and Anne, could not have made me more at ease. I was stuck in a 1979 time zone and could not believe how modern and fresh everything looked. Everything was explained, if asked to stop, Chris would. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone. My treatment was to take place over a few months. The second visit was to be an extraction. I didn’t feel a thing and over with so quickly.
So far, I have had to have two extractions, one filling and a few scale and polishes to get my oral health back. Fears now gone and I can honestly say my mouth feels great. Thanks to everyone at Infinityblu I can smile with confidence again. A great practice.
I would like to thank Chris and all the staff at IBLU for being extremely helpful, friendly and professional, and for being able to work at such a high standard with me having such a bad gag reflex. The experience is first class, with clean, bright, modern surroundings.
I am thrilled with the good work in replacing all my amalgam fillings for white and have highly recommend Chris and the staff at IBLU to several people already.
My teeth were becoming thin and chipping, and I was going to have to have crowns placed on my front teeth. Chris recognised the problems which I had with my teeth and rather than having crowns, I have benefitted from a technique which means I still have my own teeth, but augmented.
I am always greeted with a smile and chat with the staff and have followed the augmentation of Chris’s family as well as my teeth!
This is a happy practice and I would recommend it to anyone who needs to have the best experience of dentistry- despite being 47 miles from my home! After all, is there anyone who really looks forward to going to the dentist?
May I take this opportunity of congratulating you all on providing a very warm welcome to your practice and for providing a very professional, but equally relaxing service in quite appealing, laid back and hi-tech surroundings.
Your dental surgeon and her dental nurse associate appeared confident, experienced and well up to date with any dental procedures that I have required, together performing the procedure with impressive ease and responsiveness.
As it happens, I am glad that I managed to register with Infinityblu dental practice. I have total confidence in the practice being able to handle any ask that I put before them and I whole heartedly recommend Infinityblu to anyone looking for a professional and competent practice to take care of their and their family’s dental needs.
I made my first appointment with Infinityblu as I had a problem with severe toothache. I hadn’t attended a dentist for quite a few years as I have a fear of the dentist, however, I had no choice and was in so much pain I made an appointment.
From my first phone call, I was made to feel at ease, I thought I may lose the tooth but was given all options open to me.
I had quite a few appointments over the next few weeks and even had root canal treatment, which for me is amazing as I was so frightened. I only had to raise my hand if I needed the treatment to stop, which I never needed to, as Chris Barrowman (my dentist at the practice) gave me so much confidence. I now visit for regular checkups and would never see anyone else.
All the staff at the practice are kind, thoughtful and very understanding. I would have no hesitation in recommending any friends to Infinityblu. I cannot praise Chris Barrowman and all the staff enough as they made the experience so easy for me.
