Happy New Year!
Although there is a new national lock-down, dentistry is classed as 'essential healthcare'.
Therefore the advice from the Chief Dental Officer for Scotland and NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde is to continue as we are at present.
Therefore if you have any appointments scheduled, please keep them as planned. If you need to reschedule, please contact us on 0141-889 2016.
We have restarted our hygienist services recently and have been contacting patients to schedule postponed appointments.
We hope that you will understand the reasons for the increase and continue to use and support our hygienist service so you can maintain your oral health benefits into the future.
Please contact us to make an appointment on 0141-889 2016 so we can help get that sparkle back for you for 2021!
Feel free to share this news with other patients of the practice.
Thanks and take care over the New Year period.
I thought I'd use a scary picture to make sure we all behave!
Renfrewshire moves into Tier 4 as of Friday night. However, it is unlikely that this will cause any change to the way we are currently working at the practice.
Therefore please keep your appointment if there is one arranged.
We are awaiting further information from Scottish Government and I will update if required.
We are still operating with a 'locked door' policy so please don't just turn up; you must have a pre-arranged appointment.
As before, if you're having a problem please call us on 0141-889 2016 and we're ready to help.
Everybody keep safe and look after each other!

We have now cancelled all scheduled examination/hygienist appointments for the rest of September. You should have received a text or letter to inform you of this.
We are emerging out of the lockdown for dentistry and continuing to see most of you with problems within a day or so. My thanks again for your co-operation in making this possible.
We have also now managed to secure some enhanced PPE which is allowing us to undertake a limited number of 'Aerosol Generating Procedures' (AGPs) for urgent care so we can see you in the practice within familiar surroundings.
As I have explained before, this also means that we have to leave the surgery empty, possibly for an hour or more, after the appointment therefore meaning we are limited to the numbers of patients we are be able to see.
As before, PLEASE DO NOT JUST TURN UP FOR AN APPOINTMENT AS THE DOOR WILL BE LOCKED. YOU MUST PHONE IN ADVANCE TO BE TRIAGED.
Please continue to bear with us. Remember, all the measures we have put in place are to help you receive your care as safely and quickly as possible. Contact us on 0141-889 2016 and, as always, we are ready to help.
Meantime, we have all made sacrifices over the last several months. For us to wear these tight fitting masks needed for AGPs we have had to make our own including shaving....judge for yourself......but Ian went well overboard!
