“I've been with Erskine Dental since they opened. They are fantastic. Very professional, consultative and helpful. Any emergencies I've had have been dealt with quickly especially when I've been in pain. The best part for me is their amazing receptionist Deirdre. She never lets me down with appointments when I really need them and always manages to squeeze me in. Always remembers me and is the best receptionist ever. Place wouldn't be the same without her because she adds such a personal touch."
