Meet your Pain Free Dentists
My name is Stuart Farmer and I am one of the dentists here at St Andrews Dental Care. Originally from Fife, I graduated from Dundee Dental School in 1980 and was subsequently awarded the DGDP from the Royal College of Surgeons London in 1993 as well as Membership in General Dental Surgery from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh the same year. I continue to attend numerous postgraduate courses across the world.
Additionally, I was a vocational trainer for nine years in the 1990s, mentoring newly qualified dentists. More recently, over the past 10 years I have been focusing on restorative and cosmetic dentistry, particularly the placement and restoring of implants.
Outside of work, I enjoy golfing, being with family, gardening, and fishing (when time permits).
I am Stephan and I graduated from The University of Glasgow in 2017. I have worked in both Forth Valley and Glasgow before moving into Private Practice at St Andrews Dental Care in 2023.
I provide high quality restorative and surgical dentistry. Since graduating I have continued to develop and enhance my skills, embarking on a Postgraduate Diploma in Oral Surgery. I like to cultivate a relaxed friendly environment during examinations and treatment as well as ensuring a comprehensive understanding of your treatment and oral health to empower any decision making with regards to your treatment.
Outside of the practice I enjoy live music and collecting vinyl LPs as well as fitness and hillwalking.
My name is David Adam and I am one of the dentists here at St Andrews Dental Care. I graduated from The University of Glasgow in 2005 with a Commendation. I returned to Fife to work in general practice and during this time, I spent 11 years as a trainer and mentor to newly graduated dentists.
Although I enjoy all aspects of general practice, I have developed a special interest in endodontics (root canal treatment) and have spent seven years working as an endodontist carrying out more difficult treatments on referral from general practices across Fife.
I am excited to have joined the team in St Andrews in January 2022 where I will be carrying out endodontic treatments for the other dentists.
Outside of work, I enjoy playing guitar, DIY and spend most of my free time with my family.
My name is Deborah Park, and I am one of the dentists here at St Andrews Dental Care. I qualified with Honours from the University of Glasgow in 2010 and achieved Membership of the Joint Dental Faculties from the Royal College of Surgeons shortly after. Working in private practice, in Australia, early on in my career instilled a passion to provide patients with the highest quality of care. This ambition has driven me to undertake post-graduate training in Restorative Dentistry and I have recently been awarded a PG Diploma in Prosthodontics.
Experienced in providing Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry, I take pride in rebuilding the natural beauty of the smile with minimally invasive techniques such as Invisalign, composite bonding and ceramics. I have an interest in restoring function to those who have experienced tooth wear and tooth loss and am proficient in restoring dental implants.
I have a reputation for putting anxious patients at ease and have helped many overcome their fear. With a gentle approach, I can create a warm and friendly atmosphere which allows patients to feel relaxed in my company. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my young family, playing tennis, eating out and travelling.

My name is Eilidh and I am one of the Dental Hygiene Therapists here at St Andrews Dental Care. I started my dental career in 2014, training as a dental nurse in an NHS Community Dental Centre where I assisted dentists in providing dental care for individuals with disabilities and special needs.
After completing nursing training, I was inspired to take my career further and enrolled at Dundee Dental School in 2016 to study a BSc in Oral Health Sciences with the goal of becoming a Dental Hygiene-Therapist. I went on to become a locum dental hygienist at RAF Leuchars providing dental care for army and RAF personnel.
At St Andrews Dental Care, I particularly enjoy helping patients maintain an excellent standard of oral health at home and especially like teaching patients how to take good care of dental implants.

I am very passionate about high-quality patient care. I love everything about being a dental therapist, but I thrive on a challenge. I have a passion for working with anxious patients ensuring they get over their dental anxiety and feel comfortable in my surgery.
I believe my empathetic and caring personality allows me to bond with patients putting their needs first. My days range from dental hygiene to complex filling appointments. You will hear me singing my way through the day!
