Dental Laboratory

Also on site is our laboratory, which specialises in all-ceramic dentistry and has its own Straumann Etkon scanner.

Treatment Planning

“What are the options for this patient?” is often the question by which we are perplexed. Our greatest success in our referral service is in formulating patient treatment plans. With our digital OPT, CT scanner, technicians, referral clinicians and our dedicated patient consultation room we explore the patient’s options and develop this into a fully explained, consented and signed treatment plan. As a result, the uptake of treatment plans is very high. Normally the planning and We offer you a complete service from treatment planning right through to the delivery of cases for those dentists who wish to refer for the entire treatment.

Alternatively, as a referral centre for practices across Scotland, we offer you a blended learning approach to partnering with you. This includes study days and evenings, mentoring / practical assistance and e-learning tools, right through to bespoke training for your whole practice. Our aim is to develop those referring practices that wish to get involved in our coaching and mentoring programmes.

Our facilities can be made available for referring dentists to use, either within assisted practical mentoring or when working alongside our technicians or sedationist.
