Since 2004, The Guild Practice has been providing high quality implant dentistry for our own patients and, more recently, on referral from colleagues. Having four dentists in our practice trained in dental implantology, we are well placed to attend to the variety of needs of the patients we care for.
Dr Bruce Guild
Both Bruce and Heidi began their implant training with Cemal Ucer in Trafford in 2000. Since then they have gradually furthered their training, knowledge and surgical skills in implant dentistry on their own patients in general dental practice. This has allowed them the opportunity to audit the techniques that work well and those that work less well over a long review period. More recently the scope of treatment has extended to include lateral window sinus grafting. The chairside support team have all undertaken the necessary implant training courses and help to deliver a smooth-running procedure, giving our patients tremendous confidence.
Patients just beginning to think about dental implant treatment may find it helpful to attend a complimentary preliminary consultation with Dr Guild. This appointment does not include a clinical examination and it only takes 15 minutes. The discussion will help you consider the options for treating your dental problems and decide whether to proceed to a clinical consultation for implants. The preliminary consultation is free of charge for visitors enquiring through this website. Please use the form on the right hand column to request an appointment.
Once you have decided in principle that you want implant treatment, the next step is a clinical consultation. This includes a comprehensive oral examination, and results in production of a fully-costed individual plan for your treatment. The fee for the clinical assessment appointment and provision of your personal treatment plan is £90 including X-rays. The cost of the treatment planning consultation is refunded when you proceed with the treatment.

The feedback from my patients is that they were very happy with the quality and the manner of the service, and would be more than happy to go back to Dr Bruce Guild for any further treatment if necessary. I have no problem with recommending The Guild Practice for implants." - Dr Hilary Blundell, Belfast
