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. Together with experienced dental surgeon, Anna Lang, who joined the practice in 2006 they have built up quite a reputation for providing high-quality dental care in Glasgow. Have a look at our reviews to see what we mean!
Our dentist Anna Lang has a special interest in the provision of natural dentures. She has a great enthusiasm for this treatment option and has undergone training and gained much experience in making both partial and full dentures. Anna is a member of the BSSPD (British Society for the Study of Prosthetic Dentistry). We are proud to develop highly attractive cosmetic dentures allowing patients to look good, and feel confident and attractive. Book a consultation today and you will be fully involved in the process, ensuring that we help you to achieve a natural and comfortable smile with your new dentures.
Brush up your oral care routine with our hygienist

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.
