We are totally committed to your wellbeing, our welcoming team take pride in looking after our patients and are always available to help and advise, ensuring all your encounters with our practice are nothing but pleasant.

We were also shortlisted for the 2018 Scottish Dental Show Community Award for our efforts to help protect our eco-system by hosting our very own beehive. We sell our honey at the practice in aid of the Forget Me Not Club – a wonderful charity that helps those who suffer with dementia and their families.

We offer a wide variety of treatments

We appreciate that everyone is different and so we offer a variety of services to suit a range of dental needs. From general dental care for all the family to cosmetic dentistry such as tooth whitening, we have the experience to deliver all you require to enjoy a healthy smile. Whether you need crowns, bridges, veneers, fillings or dentures – we can provide it.

Over the years, the team has gone from strength to strength, expanding from very small beginnings to now working three full-time surgeries. We strive to build long-term relationships, educating and working with our patients to establish and maintain good oral health. This also enables us to work towards more advanced and cosmetic dental care to suit each individual’s needs and wishes.

We welcome new patients

We are very pleased to welcome both new NHS and private patients to our practice. At your initial examination, we will comprehensively assess the health of your teeth, gums and all other oral tissues, taking any X-rays we feel necessary. Your dentist will discuss with you any treatment options during this appointment and, if necessary, a further appointment will be made. By explaining the options fully, we enable you to make an informed decision about your future care. You will be given a written report, cost estimate, advice sheet and treatment plan as required. After this we will also agree on how often we would like to see you for routine examinations and hygienist visits. Once you have been seen and any required treatment completed, you will have the opportunity to join our monthly payment care plan. This is an affordable way to achieve ongoing high-quality dental care.
