Dental implant clinic
Roxburgh Dental hold an implant clinic that allows our patients to achieve the smile they have always wanted. Unlike denture or bridges, implants are more durable, provide a more permanent fix and are the closest solution to natural teeth, both in appearance and fit.
Our Implant Dentist, Duncan Black, is highly experienced in the field of implants and will ensure that you receive the highest quality of care throughout your treatment. To book an appointment with Duncan Black, please contact the practice on 01896 753 424.

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.
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.
”“To anyone seeking a new dentist, I would highly recommend the Roxburgh Dental Practice, Galashiels, a popular and welcoming establishment with excellent dentists and friendly, helpful receptionists and dental nurses. I am delighted with the treatment I have received from my dentist there, Steven Armitage; likewise the friends who registered with him on my recommendation. Not only is Mr Armitage a very good dentist, he is very gentle and never hurts!”K McLellan
