We’re part of the Inverkip community
Situated in the heart of the community, Ivy Cottage Dental Practice is next to the Post Office and Inverkip Primary School. The practice has close links with the local schools and nurseries, providing oral health awareness to children in the area. This helps to instil good dental habits from an early age while also creating a familiarity with the practice staff, which can help to prevent dental anxiety.
We want to do our bit for the environment
We have two active beehives here in our garden. These help to improve the population of honey bees, which has a positive on the local community by pollinating plants and flowers in Inverkip. Our patients can even buy Ivy Cottage Honey, harvested right from our very own beehives!

At Clyde Munro, we understand that private dentistry is an investment – one that we endeavour to make possible for everyone. We keep our treatment prices fair and reasonable so that all our patients can access not just the treatments they need, but the treatments they want.
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.
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.
By partnering with Chrysalis Finance, 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.
