NHS Dentistry

We’re an NHS Dentist

All the team at Muirhead Dental Care believe in providing the best dental care they possibly can, tailored to your own personal requirements. Under the NHS, we provide a broad range of treatments including, Examination, Fillings, Crowns, Veneers, Bridges, Dentures, Root Canal Treatment & Scaling/Polish.

The only limitations are those set by the NHS which stipulates that treatment is concerned primarly with ensuring every patient receives the care needed to achieve dental health.

A NHS dental examination in Scotland is free of charge for everyone.

NHS patients, who pay for their treatment, pay 80% of the treatment costs (including any x-rays), up to a maximum of £384. A dentist can ask for payment in advance.
