Jane Hydes

I have been a patient/client of Nelson for a few years now and this guy is nothing less than an artist. He is at the top of his game for facial aesthetics. he take the time to listen and then draws a plan of the works on my face, he then proceeds precisely, painlessly and gently to administer. He is so accurate every single time and if I could give Nelson 6 stars I would. if you are considering facial aesthetics, give Nelson a call, you will never look back. Thanks lot Nelson

Mark Govan

Superbly professional, friendly service..never seen the level of detail in a simple check up. So pleased to have this standard of dentistry on my doorstep

Alan Cardwell

Delighted that Gordon is in Lanark. Great chair-side manner, very reassuring, explains everything in easy terms and so meticulous. First visit the detail in the check up..never seen that level of attention before..and yesterdays ' complicated' crown preparation..never even felt the Jag go in, lots of work but no fuss and completely seem-less. Just brilliant. No often going to the dentist is a pleasure


Had a tooth out before xmas, they were amazing as I am so scared of the dentist

Michelle Mitchell


We have answers

I would like to know more about facial aesthetics treatments. How do I go about this?

We offer free no obligation facial aesthetics consultations. We welcome new and existing patients and will carry out a thorough assessment to formulate a treatment plan that is right for you. Our dentists use only premium anti-wrinkle and dermal filler products and have studied facial anatomy at length so you can trust you are in safe hands.

How can I get more information on Invisalign and teeth straightening?

We offer free Invisalign consultations for new and existing patients where all treatment options, expected outcomes, length of treatment and costs are discussed in detail.
Please call us or email info@woodstock.dental to book your free consultation.

I am not registered but would like an Airflow Diamond Polish stain removal treatment. Can I still be seen for a hygienist visit?

Yes. Many patients may be registered at another practice who are not yet able to offer hygiene treatment for their patients. We have invested in the highest tech ventilation in all of our surgeries which means we can dedicate one of our surgeries for hygienist use.
Our hygiene therapists work independently and patients wishing to have this treatment can book in without having to see on of our dentists or register with the practice.

I have never seen the hygienist before. What can I expect from my appointment?

Our hygiene therapy team are dedicated to improving your oral health by treating active gum disease and teaching you how you can prevent future gum problems to prevent premature tooth loss. The hygiene appointments are longer than a traditional scale and polish visit which allows time to create a bespoke at-home care routine for you. In addition to this, they offer our Airflow Diamond Polish treatment. This is a high powered device which uses a combination of a specially designed micro powder, air and water to gently and effectively remove even the toughest stains.

Do you offer composite bonding?

Yes we do. Composite bonding is a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of your teeth, to make them whiter, brighter, look straighter and address any chips or uneven edges of your teeth.
The treatment is pain free, involves no drilling away of the natural tooth and can be completed in 1 visit.

Please call us or email info@woostock.dental to book a consultation.

Are you accepting new patients and how can I book my appointment?

Yes, we are currently registering new patients on a private basis. On registration, we will carry out a comprehensive assessment where we will discuss your options for treatment. We offer a full range of private treatments and your dentist will be able to discuss what treatment is best suited to you. We have a private fee list which is available on our website.

Please call the practice on 01555663163 or email info@woodstock.dental and we can arrange an appointment which is convenient for you. We will send you a text reminder before your appointment with links to complete a pre-assessment screening and medical history form.

Should you need to change your appointment, please give us as much notice as possible to allow us to offer this slot to another patient.

I have a dental emergency but I am not registered. Can I still be seen?

At Woodstock Dental, every dentist has allocated emergency appointment slots each day. If these have not been filled by our registered patients, we can see you to assess and treat your dental emergency. On most occasions if you call us in the morning, we will be able to see you on the same day.

For unregistered patients, there is a consultation fee of £50 and for any treatment required, the dentist will fully discuss the treatment options and relevant

Alternatively, if it is out of surgery opening hours or you wish further advice, please call 111.

I am an anxious patient and very scared of dental treatment. Can you help me?

Many people feel anxious at the thought of even stepping into the waiting room of a dental surgery. Don’t worry! This is a very common problem and there is no reason to feel embarrassed about it. All of our dentists have treated many, many patients with dental phobias. Sometimes patients may be worried about the volume of treatment they may need, but it all starts with a simple check-up and most often it’s much easier and the list of treatment needed isn’t as long as you would imagine. We endeavour to be kind and patient with everyone we see but please do tell us if you have a phobia and we will make sure to use extra TLC and take your dental visits at a pace that suits you.

I am unhappy with the colour of my teeth. What are my options?

We would advise booking an examination appointment to determine exactly what is the cause of discoloration. It may be what is known as extrinsic staining from coffee, red wine a smoking, and an Airflow Polish treatment with our hygienist would remove these stains. It may be old leaking fillings or crowns, in which case we can discuss options for replacement. Or it could be the natural tooth colour. Our teeth yellow and darken over time and at-home professional tooth whitening is a highly effective treatment which lightens the natural tooth colour with long lasting effects. Price start from £249 but look out for special offers on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
