Dr Ahmed Khalid BDS
GDC No. 244323
Ahmed graduated with a BDS from the University of Glasgow in 2013.
He has previously worked in the very outskirts of Scotland, in places such as the Isle of Benbecula (as the community dentist) and Oban.
Ahmed provides implant treatment for people who are missing single or multiple teeth.
He completed his training with the BAIRD Academy and has since completed further postgraduate training specific to bone and gums surrounding the implants. He is delighted to be able to help people restore their ability to chew, talk and, most importantly, smile.
Ahmed has a chatty demeanour and constantly finds ways to simplify things to help his patients understand exactly what he can do for them. He strives to achieve a great outcome for his patients while also providing a relaxing atmosphere. You can find him on occasion singing along to the songs on the radio but we're not sure if that helps with the relaxation! Especially when his favourite music consists of metal and heavy rock.
When not doing surgery, explaining procedures with an extravagant amount of enthusiasm or telling terrible jokes to his patients, he can be found in the gym, cooking up a storm in the kitchen or doing some DIY around the house. Ask him about making sourdough bread for some pro tips (well . . . he believes they're pro tips!).
