Latest Update from Dr Murphy

Since 13th July 2020 we have been providing routine dental care to the majority of our patients. It doesn’t sit well with us that we have been asked to consider out of date PPE for NHS patients. Neither does it
seem reasonable that the Scottish Government have persisted with the valuation of NHS dental treatment at 80% of its precovid value.

To be clear, that value was £9.96 for a small filling and £14.60 for a scale and polish. There is absolutely no way that we can afford to pay our nurses, reception staff, hygienists snd dentists from 80% of such paltry offerings. We cannot imagine that there are other professional people who would deem to share such remuneration with multiple staff and be able to pay their other bills in the current climate.

In summary, the act of dental treatment deserves fair value. The Scottish Government must consider that value as they must surely have done over the last six months. Until then, we will continue to treat the symptoms of dental disease and diagnose those conditions as we might normally.

The provision of final restorations and long term care under the NHS remains a matter for the Scottish Government.

Please note that ordinarily, working patients pay 80% of their NHS treatment costs. For more than 6 months, not a single payment has been taken in contributions towards Scottish NHS dentistry.

We believe that this represents the utmost
neglect of administrative duty which will incur significant damage to the Oral Health of Scotland’s population.

We have early evidence that the levels of treatment activity are worse within high deprivation areas- an assessment which we believe to reflect most poorly on the handling of dentistry by the Scottish Government throughout the SARS-CoV-2 crisis.

Please support Scottish dentists in their campaign for a better NHS.
Kind Regards
Dr Brendan Murphy and staff.

Nervous dental patients welcome

We realise many people need courage to see a dentist. They may have suffered from poor treatment recently or have bad memories of visiting the dentist when they were a child.

We aim to provide a friendly, caring, relaxed and welcoming environment where we help you talk through your fears and we take time to explain why and how we do things and proceed when you feel comfortable.

We provide dental sedation for those patients who need it or when the treatment calls for it.

Free dental consultation

  2. You will get a reminder via text about 48 hours before your appointment.
  3. You will have a full 20 minute conversation with the dentist free of charge when we go through all of the options, treatments and costs.
