Glasgow Dentist Blog
A good dentist always cares about his profession and being a dentist is about more than the mechanics of caring for the individual patient's teeth. In this blog our dentists find something to say about dentistry today as well as comment on items in the news. By necessity this section isn't updated all that frequently because, after all they are very busy with the business of patient care and maintaining good notes, which is a process which can often occupy them long into the evening. However when they do have something pressing to say about the state of dentistry in Glasgow and some time to get it down in words you will find it here.
