Dental group recruits experts to further expansion
Scottish Dental Care has appointed two dentists to expand the range of treatments at its clinics in Glasgow and Oban.
Dr Graeme Ker, one of the few dentists in the country capable of performing full arch implant therapies, has joined the group as it plans to expand its offer for the service.
Graduating top of his class from the British Academy of Implant and Restorative Dentistry Academy in Leeds in 2021, Graeme has extensive experience in all aspects of implants and cosmetic dentistry, from a single tooth, to a full set – striving to minimise the invasiveness of every procedure.
We are absolutely thrilled to welcome both Graeme and Lorna
Graeme, 35, has turned his focus exclusively to implants, and has carried out around 150 procedures since 2021.
“I’ve always been passionate about seeing a patients care through from beginning to end, which drove me to having a special interest in dental implants,” he said. “Implants are not just a cosmetic fix but can transform people’s way of life.”
Graeme will be based in the group’s Hyndland practice but will also be offering treatments in the Oban clinic, saving patients from traveling to Glasgow.
The group has also appointed Dr Lorna Cox, who will be based in the newly acquired Belhaven Dental Clinic. With more than 22 years of experience in Dentistry and an Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer at Glasgow University, Lorna offers a range of medical aesthetic treatments.
“I am extremely passionate about achieving subtle, natural results, with advancements in regenerative skin treatments being particularly exciting,” said Lorna.
“Through detailed consultations I am able to create bespoke treatment plans to help address patients concerns, which can have a multitude of health benefits, not just those we see on the outside. Belhaven is the perfect place for me to offer these treatments in a safe environment.”
Scottish Dental Care operates 20 practices in Scotland with 80 dentists, employing more than 200 team members and serving around 200,000 patients.
Lynn Hood, Chief Executive, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to welcome both Graeme and Lorna, their appointments come at a very exciting time for us.
“Their combined experience will bolster our roster of dentists across Scotland, expanding our offering of treatments at our clinics in Glasgow and Oban, ensuring more people have access to high-quality dental care.”
