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.
