Dentist Referrals

We are pleased to accept referrals from other dental practices for both dental implants and orthodontic treatment.

Dr Murphy on accepting dentist referrals:

I've often came up against patients with a negative regard for the pricing and ambiguity or complexity of planning amongst our profession. We have worked hard on this and you'll find our reward at the top of a Google search for dentist Glasgow prices.

We take referrals from approx 12-14 practices and 22-25 dental principals or associates. We are not an all implant practice and many cases are heavy wear or reconstructive, mixed ortho and porcelain. I use a lot of NT alternative splints, generally well tolerated, retainers (using ESSIX material, must be essix for durability in those cases) are a good alternative.

I am not a specialist. We don't advertise for referrals but I tend to stumble on new and interested referral sources. I've been practicing in the Glasgow area for 26 years. I've never had a patient complaint that involved the GDC, never a warning or hearing- although await the day when someone may try and change seems so litigious out there!

If referred patients ask to stay here after treatment is completed we say no.

If you want to be involved in treatment or attend, use photos we say yes!

Referrals can be made by telephone, email, post, fax or by using our contact form. Patients can usually be seen within two weeks.

You do not need to be a Glasgow dentist to contact us. We accept referrals from all over Scotland
