Our Team - working together for you
Over the years we've built a fantastic team. Each team member has been hand picked by practice principal Andrew Leitch to complement our exisiting team and our practice ethos. Many of our dental nurses have been with us for several years, and although our relocation to Yoker has resulted in a rapid increase in staffing levels, we've worked hard to ensure that we all work well together as a team and continue to provide an excellent standard of patient care. We're committed to expanding and re-inforcing our skills in a supportive environment - you may find the dentists working together during your appointment to provide the very best of care, or find that one of our nurses qualified in dental radiography takes your x-rays under the supervision of a dentist.
