Why be seen by a Specialist?
The General Dental Council (GDC) require that rigorous criteria are met before a dentist can call themselves a ‘Specialist’. All the Clinicians at Blackhills Clinic are GDC registered Specialists and have many years experience in helping dentists and their patients from all over Scotland, the UK and beyond. It is our policy to treat patients only for the problem for which they have been referred (unless other issues become apparent). Upon completion of treatment, the patient will always be returned back to their dentist for continuing dental care.

" 'What I find oustanding about Blackhills is not only the calibre of the individual dental specialists, but the fact that they are a team and work as a team, bringing bespoke solutions to each patient's particular problems. Furthermore, they are friendly, reassuring, helpful and not at all pushy. They quite genuinely make you feel at each by pointing out the various alternatives. This is not a 'one stop, one option' dental practice.
These are the top dental practitioners I have ever encountered and I would not hesitate to recommend anyone who requires specialist dental treatment.' "
