Questions I have answered without issue and great post-visit follow upDebbie, Dunfermline , 06 10 19

After quite a stressful journey to Glasgow, Alisha (the Co-Ordinator) offered to meet me without asking, as I was quite lost. (I have no sense of direction!). Made to feel at ease, and had complimentary x ray and CT scan to see what treatment was possible for dental implants and upper denture. Wow, how the advancement in dentistry certainly has advanced! The Clinic is beautifully clean, the staff extremely kind and understanding of my dental phobia. Questions I have answered without issue and great post-visit follow up. Highly recommend you consider this Clinic before committing elsewhere.
