You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby

You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby
The end of November 2019 marks the end of our 5th birthday celebrations. We’ve had such a lovely time pushing the boat out and giving away hundreds of pounds worth of prizes!
It’s also been a time for reflection. Five years is a long time in the world of dentistry but we think we’ve come further than most.
When we started out in the winter of 2014, we had a LOT of expensive overheads and a LOT of space…
The original layout of the old Bank Of Scotland was perfect for our vision – Glasgow’s first one-stop dental clinic where patients could receive easily accessible, first-class NHS and cutting edge private dental care all under one roof and all on-site!
Patients who have been with us since our doors opened will remember how we started with 2 treatment rooms and 2 dentists. Our reputation grew fast. Before we knew it, we had added an extra treatment room and with that came an extra toilet because all of these new patients came new bottoms too 🙂
Frustrated with the long waiting list for CT Scans on the NHS led us to investing a CT Scanner in 2015. This meant that as well as being able to offer our own patients the most technologically advanced services, we also began to take referrals from dentists from all over Glasgow and beyond.
The addition of 3 new surgeries in 2017 meant we were able to see more patients and, importantly, dedicate space (and time) to treatments that were becoming renowned for (such as oral surgery and dental implants)
Ashley receives countless CVs every week from people who work with us. She has been here since our doors opened – initially as a highly trained nurse who assisted our implant surgeon and now as our highly qualified Practice Manager (Wherever we go, we like to take our staff with us! And we like to go forwards! 😁)
And now it’s 2019. An incredible year where as well as Supporting our staff through births, marriages and degrees,  we won Practice of the Year (TWICE no less!), Team of the Year and a special commendation for our Customer Care. The wonderfully kind and talented people employed at Shawlands Dental Care deserve no less and we couldn’t be more proud of their achievements!
Roll on 2020 and the next 5 years! We can’t wait to register you!

p.s. 2020 is bringing TWO more surgeries to meet demand!
p.p.s. for those of you who are interested in local history, we’ve attached a link to a bonus video of SDC in the 1950’s

This practice is honestly hands down the best I've ever been to. The staff are so friendly, warm and welcoming and the practice is very modern and clean. I hadn't been for years and am extremely phobic of the dentist…

Got my implant tooth fitted here by Dr Ahmed and Lauren. Only in my 30’s and felt self conscious about having to take my front tooth out! Once I even lost it and had to walk around with my mouth…
