Dr Duncan Ralston
BDS DipImpDent RCS (Eng)
Duncan runs an expanding private referral clinic founded on cosmetic and implant dentistry. He has successfully placed and restored over 1,000 implants in the last 16 years. In 2010 he was awarded the prestigious Diploma in Implant Dentistry at the RCS in London. Since qualifying from Birmingham University in 1984, Duncan has continued to gather both knowledge and skills from recognised centres of excellence across the world. He is an active member of both the Association of Dental Implantology and the British Society of Occlusal Studies.
Patients just beginning to think about dental implant treatment may find it helpful to attend a complementary preliminary consultation with clinical manager Karen, an experienced dental nurse. 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 with Dr Ralston. 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 £95, including an OPG (a large X-ray).

"Since Duncan became my dentist, matters have changed considerably. I have had four bridges and three implants, which has meant that for the first time in my life I now have the full complement of teeth and not one ounce of trouble. I would recommend Duncan to anyone especially if you need dental implants, mine are fabulous."
"I write this letter to espress my thanks and appreciation to you for giving me my speech, taste and confidence to smile again back. For the first time in 30 years I can now bite into an apple and taste the food I am eating."
"Thank you for your help in the management and treatment of the patients that I have referred to you over the past 5 years and the way you have communicated with me about their treatment. Your treatment has always been guided by what was best for the patient and my patients have always been impressed with your holistic approach to the service and treatment you have given them, and have without exception been delighted with the results!" - Mr J E Batchellor LDS RCS (Eng), Hinckley, Leicestershire
"Duncan Ralston has been caring for my patients for nearly 10 years and provides a fantastic service and experience for them. They have nothing but praise for his work and attention with the standard of implant being proof of the quality that Duncan provides. I would not hesitate in referring to Duncan and considering the quality of work the fees are very competitive." - Dr Lesley Trivett BDS, Crofton House Dental Practice, Leicester
"We have worked closely with Duncan Ralston for many years referring patients to him for implant-based solutions. We have always found his manner to be professional and courteous involving us in all stages of treatment planning for our patients. Duncan's extensive implant training and experience speaks for itself in that both our patients and we have been delighted with the final results. It is clear to us that he takes great pride in providing an exceptionally high standard of dental care to the patients we refer to him and the overwhelming feedback from our patients is that of a positive experience. He has an excellent support team who have greatly assisted in both the treatment planning and surgical/restorative phases of treatments for some of our most nervous patients too. The Dental and Cosmetic Clinic has become our preferred referral centre for implant solutions for our patients and we would highly recommend Duncan and his team to anyone seeking implants." - Lina Kotecha BDS and Shrikesh Kotecha BDS, Smile Essential, Leicester
