Coia & Associates

Welcoming NHS and private patients in Glasgow


We welcome NHS patients and our student neighbours

We offer NHS dental services to the people of Glasgow. We are fully committed to helping all our patients look after their teeth and keep them healthy for years to come. And if you’re a local student who’s just moved away from home, why not register with us? We’ll make sure we take care of your teeth so dental pain never distracts you from your studies!

An experienced and longstanding team

Our team of dental professionals have years of experience in providing first-class dental treatment. Principal dentist, Annibale Coia has been practising dentistry since he graduated in 1983, picking up a host of qualifications along the way.

Brush up your oral care routine with our hygienist

At Coia & Associates, we are lucky to have our very own hygienist, Marie Dorrian. Keeping dental problems at bay is greatly dependent on keeping to a good oral hygiene routine. Marie has decades of experience in oral hygiene and will advise you on the best way to keep your teeth clean and healthy, and give them a deeper clean when required.

Greg Bowes

Associate Dental Surgeon
GDC Number: 70845

I have been in practice for more than 25 years and can provide all aspects of general dentistry. I am able to provide most types of treatment across the NHS and Private spectrum, and also minor oral surgery in most cases without the need for referring out. I have experience in planning, placing and restoring dental implants.

I am a club Skipper in a sailing club and visit the Clyde and Hebrides much as I can. I also enjoy the floating shed part of sailing, the never ending list of maintenance, and tinkering with things!

I also regularly walk the hills for Scotland and the Lake district dragging my wife behind me the kids are more enthusiastic and drag themselves with us.

My main aim would be to, however, to help patients maintain their own dentition, with prevenative advice and intervention, to avoid having to provide treatment in the first place

Thanks so much to Mr Coia and his team. Extremely fast response to my problem when crown fell out. Despite their very... full diary they managed to fit me in at short notice and sort it. 2nd time I’ve had a visit during pandemic and reassured that they are doing all they can to continue to see patients whilst taking all precautions. Couldn't have wished for a better response. So fortunate to have such a fabulous dentist.🙏read more

Annibale and his colleagues are as always professional but friendly. I always feel like going to the dentist is like an... assessment - however, even if you need a wee tweak here or a filling there, it’s always done in a nice polite manner.The practice is managing extremely well with the new ways as we all need to adapt in line with the current covid pandemic. Everything is explained well and anything I didn’t understand, when asked it was explained again in a polite way.We are all learning new ways and I was nervous about attending the dentist, but as soon as I buzzed the door, I was made to feel at ease straight away.Well done and it was lovely to see you all again. Take care and stay more
