Our mission is to deliver pain free dentistry to the people of Glasgow
Every member of the Queens Drive Dental team is devoted to ensuring that their skills and knowledge remain at the forefront of dentistry, so we can deliver the best *pain free dentistry in Glasgow.
Many first-time dentistry patients to Queens Drive are amazed and reassured by our approach. We often have patients tell us that they have a feeling their previous dentist experiences of quick visits for a ‘check-up’ are taking a ‘patch-up’ approach to their mouths, which may not be the best in the long-term. Technology and preventive science have come a long way in dentistry.

Peter graduated from University of Glasgow and has worked in dental practices in Glasgow and Falkirk before joining the team at the Pain Free dentistry group.
Peter enjoys all aspects of general dentistry but has a specific interest in restorative / cosmetic treatments. Using his artistic skills to help improve a patients smile and self- confidence is what he enjoys most about dentistry. Peter strives to provide the highest standard of care while allowing patients to feel as relaxed and at ease as possible during their dental treatment.
Peter has undergone extensive post graduate training throughout the UK in both aesthetics and restorative dentistry and is committed to incorporating the most up-to-date techniques into his daily practice. He is able to provide cosmetic orthodontics and clear aligner treatments using the latest digital technology to ensure predictable treatment outcomes.
Outside of dentistry Peter enjoys spending time with his little girl and is a keen cyclist.
Outside of work Nial enjoys travelling and is a sports fan, in particular watching and playing football. Occasionally he can be found on a golf course, but is very much the definition of a ‘fair-weather golfer.
Nial enjoys spending time getting to know patients enabling trust to be built, in order to help them achieve healthy, beautiful smiles, in a relaxed and caring, pain free environment.
Graduated from University of Glasgow with commendation, and has worked in practices in Lanarkshire and Glasgow, Nial has worked for the Pain Free Group since 2015.
Nial is one of the youngest people in the UK who has a Masters degree in Endodontology (Root Canal Treatment). This post graduate degree ensures that patients can have the most advanced knowledge and skills applied to an area of dentistry which typically people are wary of.
Nial hopes that these additional skills will help eliminate the stigma and fear surrounding root canal treatment, thus ensuring patients enjoy the treatment in the most pain-free way.
As a result of this further training, Nial also accepts referrals from other dentists.
I qualified from Glasgow Dental Hospital in 1990, since then I have been working at Queen’s Drive Dental Practice which I enjoy very much. I have a special interest in non surgical treatment of periodontal disease and the development of oral health within the practice. I have continued to widen my knowledge and skills with a variety of professional development courses….
I qualified as a Dental Therapist in May 2011 and have worked happily in dental practices since. I currently spread my busy week between five dental practices and very much enjoy my job. I am passionate about working closely with patients to support them in achieving the very best in their oral health.
In my spare time I enjoy keeping active. My favourite activities are running, walking, yoga and more recently found a love for Pilates.
Then of course I love to balance that out by spending time with friends and family over a nice meal and rose wine.
My name is Thurga and I’m one of the Dental Therapists at QD. I recently qualified with a merit from Glasgow Caledonian University in 2019.I enjoy all aspects of dentistry particularly treating complex gum disease cases, restoring decayed teeth and helping anxious patients feel at ease during their appointments.
In my spare time, I like to cook and try different recipes and love dancing away.
