I founded the practice with the need to develop a setting for a team to help me deliver the best possible dentistry.

At The Practice we believe in comprehensive education for our patients to make them aware of their own mouths. We treatment plan to improve and restore every smile we care for, so other than regular hygiene and examinations our patients have a stable dental future ahead of them. To create a clean, professional and modern practice where patients feel that they are in good hands and that they are personally cared for in the same way we would treat our own family and friends.

For our clinical dentistry to be comparable to the highest standards anywhere in the world and our patients to recommend us to their friends and family should they require our services; we want you to become friends of the practice, not just patients.

To create a team from which every member takes an active role in the practice as if it were their own and be enthused by the profession and roles that they are in. To be able to develop their scope of practice, knowledge & skills, gradually improving every tiny aspect of the practice until it has become greater than the sum of its parts and for the team to be proud of what they have achieved.

Dr. Tristan Scott

I qualified from the prestigious Barts & The Royal London School of Medicine and Dentistry, graduating as a Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the University of London in 2014. I was awarded University of London Blues in recognition of achievements in university sport.

I have studied extensively in the UK, Europe and the United States undertaking courses in Comprehensive Orthodontics, Lingual Orthodontics, Cosmetic Dentistry & Aesthetic Restorative Dentistry. I have been a member of the UK’s only SPEAR Study Club. I teach dentists and their teams on photography, clinical assessments, smile design and digital treatment planning.

My forte is helping patients achieve a beautiful, functional smile. I have developed a skill set to provide mul - disciplinary care, frequently combining orthodontics and advanced restorative treatments in one comprehensive treatment plan. I believe in minimally invasive dentistry and I utilise an operating microscope for many procedures delivering accurate dentistry precise to 0.1mm.

Our Dentistry

The Practice is situated in the iconic Bristol General Hospital. The General first opened in 1858 and was the work of Sir George Herbert Oatley, Bristol’s most renowned architect. Heavy bombing during World War II all but destroyed the iconic structure including the Mansard roofs and the octagonal tower.

The Practice is part of a brand new and exclusive development which has meticulously restored the site to its former glory. Sitting alongside Casamia & Paco Tapas, The 3rd Michelin Starred restaurants of world class chef Peter Sanchez. The General is now Bristol’s finest new location.

Founded by Dr Tristan Scott, who oversaw the design and project management of the build, he has turned a concrete shell into the perfect bespoke practice facility for the latest in high end dentistry,










Ten minute walk from Bristol Temple Meads, in close proximity to M4 & M5 motorways.
Easily accessible by car with parking adjacent, close to the Iconic Bristol Harbourside.

“The service we received exceeded our expectations and it was completely bespoke and tailored to each of our needs from start to finish. The team really care about you as a patient & most importantly listen to what it is you want to acheive.

We both couldn’t be happier with our end results, we achieved exactly what we wanted in time for our wedding day! Thank you so much!”

“I knew straight away from the first consultation that it was the perfect place to get both Alex and myself smile ready for our wedding! We both decided to go ahead with Invisilign and cosmetic bonding.

Tristain's knowledge, attention to detail as well as the state of the art technology & beautiful clinic was so impressive and like nothing we had experienced before from a dental practice. We were filled with confidence and knew we would be in good hands.”

"Really impressed with everything to do with The Practice. I needed a new dentist and contacted 3 dentists around Queen Sq, The Practice were the only one to call me back. The location, facilities and staff are all brilliant and I can't recommend them highly enough. Thank you to Tristan and his team."

"This was my first visit to this practice and I can hand on heart say that I will be returning. Not only are the staff professional and make you feel at ease but the interior is also stunning. My teeth look fantastic as well!"
