Coronavirus, Covid 19

The Coronavirus epidemic has led to the complete shut down of General Dental Practice across Scotland. The latest guidelines released by NHS Scotland on 24/03/2020, state that dental practices should manage emergency patients from behind closed doors, over the phone. Practice based dentists are to give emergency patients advice on pain relief and issue prescriptions to treat dental infections. Patients who require operative care are to be sent to Health Board Urgent Care facilities. No operative dentistry is to be done in General Dental Practice until further notice. 

We regret the inconvenience that this epidemic is causing our patients. 

We are sure that patients understand that we must fully adhere to the guidelines issued by NHS Scotland, to protect patients, staff and the wider community. 

We will keep this website updated as the situation develops.
