A £600,000 boost to dental care in Dumfries and Galloway
Following a £600,000 investment, Dumfries Dental Clinic & Implant Centre has moved from 27 Castle Street to its new home 100 metres away at 195 High Street.
This relocation and investment by Scottish Dental Care will enable the clinic to more than double its patient capacity, increasing treatment rooms from four to six and building on the already strong 1,200 NHS patient list alongside its substantial private and dental plan patient numbers.
The clinic will now offer the latest technology including an iTero scanner which is specifically designed for highly sought after Invisalign treatments, as well as a CBCT scanner to capture precise 3D imagery of the mouth as an alternative to traditional dental moulds – a procedure which had previously left patients travelling to Edinburgh or Glasgow to access.
The clinic is set to grow its NHS list whilst also bringing innovative cosmetic dentistry under its Advanced Dentistry brand to this part of Scotland for the first time.
Dr Philip Friel, the co-founder of Scottish Dental Care, said: “The opportunity to bring stylish, welcoming and modern dental facilities to Dumfries and Galloway has been a top priority for the company.
“Delivering the additional new services to this vibrant area is exciting for Scottish Dental Care, as we continue to progress with our mission of providing best in class dental solutions throughout Scotland and beyond.
“We recognise the life changing effects of great dental care and feel proud to be bringing this to an area of Scotland that has previously been underserved when compared to the larger cities. We are fully committed to the area and the continued delivery of both NHS and private dentistry.”
