About New Row Dental Practice
- We register new NHS patients
- High quality NHS and Private dentistry
- Open on Saturdays
We are an established family friendly dental practice that has been offering NHS and Private dental care in Dunfermline and the wider area of Fife since July 2008.
We are committed to providing you with a high standard of professional care using modern dental equipment and techniques in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. New Row Dental Practice provides the full range of dental treatment under NHS and also affordable Private dental care.
We also offer hygienist appointments and dental implants. We are open on Saturdays.
We currently accept New NHS patients!
All our NHS patients receive a free examination under the NHS. Our dentists will carry out a thorough clinical examination of your teeth and gums in order to diagnose any decays, cavities or the presence of gum disease. They will also carry out a soft tissues examination of your mouth to ensure that we detect oral cancer at an early stage and refer you to the appropriate specialist for further investigation without any delay.
Should you require any dental treatment such as fillings, crowns, root canal treatments, dentures, bridges, veneers etc. the dentist will explain to you what is needed and will give you different options and the associated cost. In dentistry every different option has advantages and disadvantages and also every case is different. However, our dentists will explain to you the options with their pros and cons and will make a decision with you as to how you want to proceed. Once you have agreed with the dentist on the treatment plan, then a printed estimate will be given to you with the costs involved. Please ask for an estimate if we do not give you one. Also, we will inform you if for any reason the treatment plan has to be amended and therefore the cost will be different.
If you do not require any further treatment, your dentist will recommend when you should next come in for a check-up. It is commonly recommended that you have a dental check-up every six months although all patients vary, with some requiring more frequent check-ups and some not needing them so often. You should follow your dentist’s recommendation to ensure your teeth stay healthy.
