Where possible, dental emergencies will be seen on the same day during opening hours. If you can’t be seen immediately advice will be given to help manage the symptoms and you will be seen as soon as possible.
If you have a dental emergency out of surgery hours, please phone the practice to listen to a recorded message with details regarding our out of hours service.
Just a wee note to thank you very much for my lovely new teeth. I will be smiling the brightest at my graduation. They look and feel fabulous.
