So we are over a month into the return of routine private care and things are progressing well. We are currently moving though those patients due in late May/ early June and are well on target to have patients back in their normal cycle Oct/Nov. We can now provide a full range of private care. I can also confirm that the practice will continue to absorb the increased cost of PPE for private care. Many practices have looked to pass this increased cost to their patients, however I am very aware that many people are having a difficult financial time during the current crisis and have elected not to do this. This policy will be kept under review but I would not expect any change this year.
I am sorry to say that we will no longer be able to offer a complete emergency service for the NHS patients. My staff were fit tested last week for emergency AGP procedures , with the practice being provided with PPE. Examination of these masks reveals that they went out of date in 2014. The original date had been covered by a new sticker. This redating is not endorsed by the manufacturer and they have not been involved in any re testing. The British Dental Association has also advised against usage. This is no an isolated occurrence as many practice in Scotland have been provided with similar equipment. Disappointingly care will now have to be diverted to the acute service once again as I cannot endorse the usage of safety equipment no longer fit for purpose. Images of the masks are on the practice facebook page.

Been attending Stuart's practice since his days in Chester Street. Excellent service and staff always very friendly. I've just completed a course of implant work (seven in all) and the procedure, treatment and aftercare were second to none, but glad it's all over lol. Looking forward to returning to 6 monthly check ups. Thanks again to Stuart and the Team.
Never liked going too the dentist but now it's a breeze , professional and friendly . Had 5 teeth out never felt a thing . Robbie Rocks !!!!
Been with these guys 7 years from the staff to the reminder texts, this is a fantastic practice
I recently joined Stuart's practice in May and can honestly say that I am extremely impressed! The whole team are friendly, professional, knowledgeable and have all the modern equipment. Stuart carried out some cosmetic work on my front teeth including a front crown and white filling to close the gap that had gradually developed over the years. I could not have expected a better result! I have my smile back, which to me is priceless. Massive thanks to Stuart (and the team) for doing such a great job. Lisa-Ann
I have to say that after 10 days the implant bridge is a great success. It is fabulous to be without the denture.
I am delighted with the whole treatment. I was made fully aware of all the options for my mouth and the costs involved with detailed explanations of all the stages.
A big thank you to all.
