** Covid Update **

Many of you will have seen the recent media announcement regarding the resumption of routine NHS dental services from the Scottish Government.

At present, the dental profession in Scotland has not received further information to supplement the public press release, although we have been promised details soon.

Although, we would love to get back to the way we once worked, dental practices won’t be resuming to “normal” any time soon. Each appointment takes much longer now, we adhere to strict social distancing measures and need to implement enhanced protocols, which all consequently impact on the number of patients we can see each day and staff that we can have within the building.

Please can we ask patients not to phone for routine appointments at this time but do continue to contact us if you have a concern or a dental problem and we’ll be happy to help.

Once allowed, we plan to work hard as a team to get through all of our outstanding treatments in chronological order and according to the level of need. This will take us some time, due to the back log created as a result of the restrictions we have been under since March. We will subsequently contact patients directly when it is suitable and we thank you all for your continued patience and understanding.

As always, once we receive any information from the Scottish Government and the Chief Dental Officer we will provide further updates.

We hope you are all safe and we will hopefully see you all soon!

Are we taking on NHS patients?

Unfortunately in light of the Covid 19 pandemic we are unable to take on new patients at this time, as we work hard to look after our existing patients. However, we hope that in the near future we will be in a position to register new patients, so we would be delighted to add you to our waiting list in the meantime.
