Dental clinic delight for Dumfries

A £600,000 new dental clinic has opened in Dumfries High Street that will double capacity for patients.

It’s the new home of Dumfries Dental and Implant Centre, which was previously based in Castle Street.

The new clinic has six treatment rooms, which means they will be able to build on the 1200 NHS patient list alongside their substantial private and dental plan patient numbers.

And state-of-the-art technology has been installed at the new site, including an iTero scanner for Invisalign treatments, as well as a CBCT scanner for 3D imagery as an alternative to traditional dental moulds.

Scottish Dental Care, which owns the centre, say they will be taking on more NHS patients and also offering ‘innovative cosmetic dentistry’.

Founder Dr Philip Friel has personally overseen the transformation of the new practice and 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 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.”

The team at Dumfries Dental Clinic and Implant Centre will remain the same, and Scottish Dental Care are positive that new dentists will want to join and enjoy delivering dental expertise in the new modern facilities.
