NHS treatment fees

NHS dental examinations in Scotland are free of charge for everyone (though we may charge for failed appointments if no advance notice is given). Following your examination, you will be advised of any treatment required and the likely cost, unless you are eligible for free NHS dentistry. We accept NHS patients if they are exempt from paying under the terms of the NHS, otherwise patients may pay as they go or join our dental plan.


Clyde Munro dental plan

Here at Clyde Munro, we have developed a Whitening and Hygiene Plan to not only give you the beautiful white smile you want, but also help you to easily maintain it. Our plan ensures your whitening and hygiene needs are covered, whilst allowing you to spread the cost through a convenient pay-monthly plan.


Low-interest dental finance

By partnering with Finance 4 Patients, Clyde Munro is able to offer our patients a simple and affordable way to spread the cost of your dental treatment with a low-interest loan. Simply use our calculator to work out an affordable monthly payment or ask at reception for a loan application.
