General Dentist with Special Interest in:
Alex is one of the senior dentists at Apple and has been working here since 2004. He has a wealth of experience with enhanced skills in Sedation, Dental Implants and Oral Surgery. He accepts new referrals for all forms of Advanced Dentistry including Dental Implants and Minor Oral Surgery (Dental Extractions). For any anxious new patients he offers sedation. Conscious sedation in dentistry enables patients to undergo any daunting procedure painlessly and completely unaware of the procedure being provided. Alex has provided sedation for almost 20 years in hospital and dental practice and has an excellent patient satisfaction record.
Many new patients are apprehensive when it comes to dental treatment, particularly if they haven’t been to the dentist for several years. Alex accepts all new patients and his gentle, reassuring approach instills confidence in his patients.
In addition to his own registered patients, Alex has accepted over 3000 referrals from other dentists over the last 10 years for all forms of treatment with or without sedation.
Alex qualified from the University of Glasgow in 1998 and was awarded Bachelor of Dental Surgery with Commendation. His professional career commenced in Cornwall where he received further training as a Senior House Officer in Oral and Facial Surgery. This culminated in the Membership Examination for the Faculty of Dental Surgeons at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow.
He has a particular interest in helping patients overcome any anxiety with the aid of sedation and in 2006 completed the Diploma in Conscious Sedation at Newcastle University.
In 2006 Alex left a long-term position as a Staff Grade Oral Surgeon in Hospital to concentrate solely on Dental Practice. He was one of the first Dentists in the South West to undertake and be awarded the Diploma in Implant Dentistry at the Royal College of Surgeons and has been placing Dental Implants at Apple for 10 years.
In 2017, Alex was made a Fellow by the Dental Faculty of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, having ‘acquired distinction as a dentist.’
He is a member of The International Team for Implantology (ITI), The Society for the Advancement of Anaesthesia in Dentistry (SAAD), the British Society for Advanced Dentistry (BSAD) and the British Association of Oral Surgeons (BAOS). His gentle, relaxed manner and unhurried approach inspires confidence in his patients and reassures them during treatment.
Alex works at the Abbotswood and Wellington Road Practices.

“Having explored the possibility of having implants I approached Alexander Greig, Apple Dental Practice, who explained the surgery in great detail.
I decided to proceed and it was one of the best decisions that I have made. It has certainly improved my quality of life in so many ways giving me confidence and the ability to be part of society again, without feeling in any way inadequate.
I thank Alex for his patience, expertise and professionalism and would have no hesitation in recommending both Alex and the exceptional result that he has achieved for me.
Thank you so much.”
“I cannot recommend highly enough the excellent dental surgery performed by Mr. Alex Greig and his assistant Alice while having dental implants at the Apple Dental Practice. Originally full of trepidation I was kept totally informed of all procedures in terms that I could fully understand and all my questions however silly were answered with understanding and compassion. After a total of approximately seven months visiting the surgery I can now laugh, smile and above all else eat without pain and my self-confidence has returned. I look forward to remaining a patient of what I consider the best dental practice in South Gloucestershire and surrounding area.”
“Reassuring, professional advice throughout my fairly significant treatment, along with great, attentive aftercare.”
I would personally like to thank you, and your team, for the excellent service afforded to me with regard to my dental implant.
Your advice and unhurried approach gave me the confidence to go ahead with the work.
The whole procedure was fantastic; I felt no pain and have had no problems whatsoever.
I would certainly recommend you, and your professionalism, to anyone considering an implant.”
