NHS Dentistry

Currently Accepting New Patients

Due to shifts in the dental industry and the impact of the pandemic, there have been adjustments to our NHS patient registration procedure.

When a patient expresses interest in registering as an NHS patient, the initial step involves a visit to our practice for a consultation to evaluate whether any dental work is necessary. In Scotland, acceptance onto the treating dentist’s list is at the discretion of the dentist. In light of alterations in NHS funding, it is important to confirm the dental fitness of patients before NHS registration can be facilitated. Should a patient require extensive dental work, such procedures will need to be carried out on a private basis.

Missing Teeth

The primary difference between NHS and private treatment is that NHS treatment is designed to deliver clinically necessary procedures to preserve function. Consequently, certain dental treatments that are available on a private basis may not be covered by the NHS. Each treatment plan is personalised, and it is recommended to speak with your dentist to explore the specific NHS and private options.

We are committed to delivering a 5-star dental treatment to all our patients, and we continue to offer both NHS and private dentistry services within our local community.
