We are registering patients under the NHS. Barrhead Dental Practice is state of the art, with the most up to date clinical and decontamination facilities.
The practice is located on the first floor of the Barrhead Health & Care Centre. This facility provides ample parking, disabled access and accessible hours.
We offer a comprehensive range of high quality NHS treatment in a friendly, relaxed environment. Our aim is to encourage preventative techniques by helping you to understand how to maintain the health of your mouth and keep it free from tooth decay and gum disease.
Our aim is to provide you with the very best all round care that modern Dentistry has to offer in a friendly, relaxed, professional environment, whilst remaining true to the family centred values upon which the Practice was founded.
Using a small handpiece that looks like a pen, the Wand gives a supply of anaesthetic in a slow comfortable manner, and thus eliminating the painful consequence caused by a surge of fluid into a confined tissue area. Find Out More
COVID-19 UPDATE - January 2021
Dental practices are essential healthcare. Therefore we are still open but working under restrictions. Travel to & from the practice is permitted for patients even from different areas.
The Scottish Government has advised that dental practices can enter a new phase.
We are able to offer more types of treatment, but due to restrictions we are extremely limited in the number of patients we can treat in a day.
We are having to prioritise patients in pain.
The practice is not operating as normal and will not be offering routine exams etc for sometime.
Please be aware that ALL APPOINTMENTS MUST BE MADE BY TELEPHONE, and entry to the Health Centre remains restricted to patients who have appointments. Please do not attend the Health Centre without a prearranged appointment. On the instruction of the Chief Dental Officer and Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board, we are limited to the number of patients we can see each day. This is to facilitate social distancing and enhanced safety measures. Patients will be appointed based on the urgency of their treatment needs. Please be patient with the staff who are doing their best in this challenging time. We will be in contact with patients who have required emergency treatment during this period, but please be advised that this will take some time.
Please read the following instructions carefully:· 1) We would ask patients to attend ALONE unless an essential carer/guardian is required. Please inform us when we triage you as any escort will also be subject to COVID 19 screening.· 2) Please attend with minimal belongings (Leave bags/jackets in car), and wear a face covering when entering the health centre.· 3) We would also ask patients to bring their own pen.· 4) We would ask all patients to arrive as close to their scheduled appointment time as possible and call the practice when they are outside (0141 800 7866). You will be advised when to enter the health centre and will be taken straight into surgery.· 5) Appointment times will be carefully given to facilitate social distancing. If you are late, we may be unable to see you.· 6) You will be asked to use the hand sanitiser on entering the reception area and again on leaving.· 7) Any payments will be required to be contactless.
We appreciate that we are giving patients a lot of new information, so please make yourself familiar with these measures before you attend an appointment.
