Finding a Dentist in the Pollokshields Area
A patient from Pollokshields recently moved into the area and was searching for a local dentist that he could trust. Here he explains why Tweedsmuir Dental Care was the perfect choice for his family.
"My family and i were looking for a new general dentist after moving to Pollokshields. We weren't too bothered about a dental practice on our doorstep as most of us drove, so we took our time and looked about as our family's oral health is very important to us. After a few non-starters a friend suggested Tweedsmuir Dental Care, it was a short 10 min journey along Mosspark Boulevard to Cardonald which didn't seem too bad, once we got to the practice our mind was pretty much made up after a short conversation with the staff. Claire MacMillan greeted us at the reception, she's the practice manageress and really friendly and made us feel very welcome."
Many of our patients come from afar to the practice, we take pride in our attention to detail, tidy practice, friendly and courteous staff, plus we have off street parking. Our catchment area has no real barriers but we have patients from Govan all the way along Paisley Road West right up to Paisley & Renfrew and also from the other direction from Pollokshields up through Crookston to Pollok and Priesthill.
But we have many patients in the immediate locale from Hillington, Penilee, Ibrox and Ralston.
The practice is a converted house and has a homely feel to it, so as you walk through the door i was extremely relaxed. My wife is a little nervous of the dentist so this was a blessing that it felt calming and not as clinical as a normal dentist surgery.
There are a few dentists in the practice and we had a consultation with Dr Anjali Chawla who is very experienced and qualified.
We were registering as NHS patients, though i've had private dental work done in the past so appreciate you get a certain level on NHS but then there may be additional charges if you want something out-with the NHS remit. That's fine though as you can't put a price on you and your family's health and wellbeing.
At Tweedsmuir Dental Care, we offer a full range of dental treatments both on the NHS and privately. Some of the cosmetic dental treatments we offer include: Dental Implants, Porcelain Veneers, Teeth Whitening and the Inman Aligner teeth straightening device.
