The practice

21 Bishopton Lane has a long history as a dental practice with some patients remembering many dentists over the last 60 years or so.   Since Libby took over in 2010 it has seen significant refurbishments. Staff have seen their facilities improved with a new office and staff room, creating places to have meetings, do essential training and occasionally relax! The front surgery has been refurbished, as well as the patient toilet and waiting room. Most recently the practice has built a downstairs surgery and brand new sterilisation facilities.

It has become a bustling hive of activity and we have lots of new members of the team to help us to care for all the additional patients we have been able to take on.

 We have a large existing patient base, many of whom have been coming for over a decade, but we try to take on as many new patients a year as we can, though we have to consider the waiting time for appointments.  We always try to see emergencies, whether registered with us or not.  Please note that we only make same-day emergency appointments, Ring at 9 a.m. to see what appointments are available that day. If we are unable to see you we can provide other contact numbers. We are not currently taking on NHS.
