COVID 19 UPDATE
As many of you will be aware, it was announced earlier that as of Monday 13th July, dental practices can start providing routine care that does not produce an aerosol, in addition to the urgent dental care we are already providing.
Aerosols are created whilst using the dental drill but also while using scalers and air syringes, which are used to blow water and air onto the teeth. This means that we still cannot do any treatment such as fillings and scale/polishes. It also means that we cannot use the air-syringe, which is a vital piece of equipment we normally use for EVERY examination, in order to properly dry the teeth and identify dental problems such as decay, leaking fillings, etc. We cannot do a proper examination without it!
We are also still limited to the number of patients we can safely see in the practice each day and must prioritise dental emergencies. For this reason, we will not be booking in any dental check up appointments just yet. We can still see you if you have any concerns with your mouth and can provide an oral cancer screening, which we would normally do at every check up anyway. We just cannot carry out a full check up properly at this stage, or treat many of the problems that are normally identified at a check up!
We understand this will be very frustrating for many patients (it is very frustrating for us too!) but we are hopeful that we will receive clearer guidance from the Scottish Government and Chief Dental Officer in the coming weeks, and as soon as we are able to safely carry out more treatment, we will let you know. Please be patient with us at this time!
In the meantime, if you have a dental problem or just want advice, then please give us a call on 01382 884878, or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you once again to all of our patients for being so understanding and we can’t wait to be back to ‘normal’ again soon!
At KW Dental we are proud to offer a wide range of NHS and Private treatments, including short-term orthodontics (Invisalign) and facial aesthetics.

KW Dental is a brand new NHS Dental Practice on Clepington Road, owned by local Dundee Dentists Hannah & Mike Foster.
Hannah and Mike met whilst studying Dentistry at the University of Dundee. After graduation, they worked in separate dental practices but always dreamed of one day owning and working in their own practice.
They got married in the summer of 2015 and since then have dedicated all their time towards the creation of KW Dental. As a husband and wife team, they are always supporting and learning from each other. Their aim is to be able to carry out high quality dentistry in a relaxed setting, helping patients to achieve a healthier mouth and be happier with their smile.
