• COVID-19B


Adhering to strict Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board directive under current phase 2 lockdown our practice is now operational at limited capacity.

Our new working hours during this COVID-19 outbreak is Monday -Friday 9:00 AM- 5:30 PM.

We are now able to deal with emergency and urgent dental cases and do our best to stabilise your dental issues until further notice.

Our practice follows infection control guidelines made by the governing bodies and make sure our infection control procedures are current and adhere to recommendations.

You will notice some changes when you attend for your next appointment. For example:

  • Our practice will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You will be asked those same questions again at your appointment.
  • We have hand sanitisers that we will ask you to use when you enter the reception area.
  • We no longer offer magazines, children’s toy and so forth, since those items are difficult to disinfect.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you are offered fewer options for scheduling your appointments.

We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.

How you can help:

  • With the exception of children and patients with carers, patient should come alone.
  • A distance of at least two meters must be observed if another patient is present in the dental practice.
  • Payment should be made by card where possible.
  • Staff will not shake your hand
  • If you show symptoms following appointment booking, you should contact the practice by phone.
  • Please do not arrive early to the practice. If necessary, you should wait outside the practice.
  • Please do not arrive without an appointment.

Routine oral examination and limited treatment will be allowed and under taken from 13th July. We are only allowed to undertake non aerosol generating procedures and consequently fillings, root treatment, crown and veneer preparation and ultrasonic scaling can not be carried out for time being.

If you need urgent dental care out with opening hours please call NHS 24 on 111. Thank you for being patient during these difficult times.
