Personal Preventive Care
We put individual patient care first and take a holistic approach to provide a comprehensive range of care and treatments. It is our understanding that carefully considered planning and care for you as an individual, listening to you and following your priorities will deliver outcomes of real value.
Individual consideration and time
This enables us to give individual consideration and time to each element of your care. We consider it a privilege to share our knowledge with you and we hope you will benefit from our years of training and experience, our passion for our work and our full range of high quality advice, treatments, therapies and the aftercare we offer.
We believe in being honest, genuine and transparent and doing our best for you in everything we do.
Investing in your care
At the heart of every decision we make is the desire to provide well-informed, personally-tailored long-term care and effective treatments for individuals.
We want you to be happy with your treatment now and into the future so make continuous, long-term investment in our clinical facilities in order to provide a foundation for excellence in our clinical procedures.
We invest in the skills of our people and in our clinical facilities. We bring expertise, experience and interest to your care and believe you benefit from a long-term, evidence-based view. We put great importance on working with you to keep your whole mouth healthy and looking great throughout your lifetime.
The same investment and care is made in our staff development and in building good relations with respected, registered specialists to support the increasing range of treatments available and the highest standards of clinical care.
We do not compromise in our choice of dental materials which we source from reputable companies for their long-term effectiveness and good value. We only work only with respected and skilled registered dental laboratories.
Our interest in our work and desire to improve and develop is always balanced and guided by the needs of our patients, following national guidance on current good practice and looking ahead to plan for future needs.
Relax - we're here to help
We realise that some people are anxious about a visit to the dentist and so we do our best to make you feel comfortable in a relaxed, informal atmosphere.
Our practice has the personal touch, we are owned and run by the individuals who organise your care and provide your treatments. We provide a comfortable, homely environment and our whole team balances expertise, experience, a range of skills and a desire to constantly improve.
We want to know what you want from your dental care and to help you overcome any worries you may have and hope you’ll feel comfortable to ask us or tell us anything that’s bothering you, so we can make your whole experience easier.
Individuals matter to us and we work together to provide you with individual advice, technical skill and well-organised care. This allows us to focus on you during your consultations, we want to listen to you and give you time and personal consideration.
We like to get to know you, assessing your whole mouth and monitoring changes so we can identify potential problems early. Working with you to keep your treatments to a minimum and advising on how to manage your own long term oral health is the best way we can help you avoid future problems and recommend appropriate treatment options for you to consider.
Behind the scenes we pay attention to detail with robust, well-considered and tested procedures to ensure our dentists, therapists, hygienists and oral health educators are able to give you time and to concentrate exclusively on your needs and treatment during every consultation and appointment.
If you are particularly nervous and require intravenous sedation for your treatment we can refer you to the Special Care Service at The Dumfries Dental Centre provided by Dumfries & Galloway Health Board.
You can benefit from continuing, personalised care that achieves the best results for you.
As a constantly developing practice, we work hard to keep up-to-date with the huge range of latest developments in our field and in understanding the difference between short-term gimmicks and solid developments to improve treatment options and patient care. We also use our experience of what really works and in adapting treatments to individual needs.
The strong partnerships we have developed with trusted specialists continue to help us ensure your care and our advice is based on good evidence and solid, considered diagnosis.
Working closely with you
Understanding the best way to take care of your own, individual mouth and diet is the key to good oral health… and a wonderful smile…
From the smallest filling to solving complex dental problems, we will work with you to find the best way to treat your individual needs, overcome any worries and keep your treatment as unobtrusive and affordable as possible.
