Major investment in new dental practice at The Forge


A brand new dental practice has opened at The Forge shopping centre in Glasgow in an investment worth £500,000 by mydentist, the UK’s largest network of dental practices.


The practice, which is located on the first floor of the shopping centre, replaces mydentist’s former practices in Bridgeton and Parkhead Health Centres. It provides patients with extended opening hours, seven days a week, and a more convenient location with free parking.


The practice provides a brighter and more modern reception and waiting area with free Wi-Fi, while in the four dental surgeries patients will benefit from all new equipment and up-to-date dentistry technology including fully digital x-rays.


All of the dentists and practice support staff from the former practices have moved to The Forge and all patients have had their care transferred to the new practice.


The practice continues to offer NHS dental treatment, hygienist appointments and affordable private care and cosmetic dental treatments. These include short term teeth straightening, whitening, veneers and anti-aging facial aesthetic treatment.


Shaun Wilde, mydentist director for Scotland and North East England, said: “We wanted to be able to offer our patients in Glasgow appointments at a time to suit them in a modern and welcoming practice environment.


“The team at The Forge understood our vision and have helped us develop a practice that matches the changing needs of our patients. Reactions have been incredibly positive so far and we’re looking forward to welcoming patients existing and new”


mydentist The Forge will open in line with shopping centre opening hours 8.30am-8.00pm Monday to Friday and 10.00am-4.00pm Saturday and Sunday.


Paul Wishart, centre manager, said: “We are delighted to have mydentist join the retailer mix at the Forge Shopping Centre. Having the dental practice within the Centre makes it more accessible for our customers to include a visit into their daily routines. With the vast range of services mydentist are offering it is a great addition to the Centre.”


mydentist The Forge has an opening offer of teeth whitening for the reduced price of £149. It also offers myoptions, an affordable approach to private dentistry with priority and urgent appointments, transparent and affordable pricing and flexible finance options.
