Covid-19 guidance on attending for dental care.

Covid-19, updated 17/05/20

Following Guidance from the Scottish chief dental officer as of 25th March 2020, all dental practices in Scotland have been ordered to close. All appointments for May have been cancelled and we will try our best to keep you updated as the situation develops. There will be no provision of routine dental treatment until we are allowed to open back up.

 

Dental Emergencies

If you have a dental emergency then we will still be monitoring phone calls made to the practice on 01698 285726 where you will be transferred to a dentist to provide advice or make further arrangements for your care. Alternatively you can email us at surgery@borlandmorton.co.uk for any issues or inquires.

If you have any of the following dental problems then please contact us without delay:

  • following any dental trauma

  • facial or neck swelling from infected tooth

  • severe pain not relieved by painkillers

  • continued bleeding following dental extraction
