Discussions Underway to Develop New NHS Dental Practice in Callander
Positive discussions are underway to explore the development of a new NHS dental practice in Callander to support local NHS patients from Callander and the surrounding area.
The Infinity Blu Dental Care and Implant Clinic, which is located on the Main Street in Callander, announced last year that it would stop offering NHS dental care to adult patients from the beginning of February 2023. However, the clinic is continuing to provide NHS dental treatment for children aged under 18 and the Health Board is working closely with the clinic to support these services into the future.
NHS Forth Valley is also in discussions with a group of Forth Valley dental practitioners who are interested in setting up a new NHS dental practice in the Callander area. While these discussions are at an early stage, the progress to date has been very positive. The group are grateful for the support they are receiving from the Health Board and are working with local NHS staff to explore the viability of this project in partnership with colleagues from Callander Medical Centre, which is a potential location for the new NHS dental practice.
Jennifer Rodgers, NHS Forth Valley’s Director of Dentistry, said: “Over the last few months we have been working closely with a group of local dentists who are interested in developing a new NHS dental practice in the Callander area.
“Discussions so far have been very positive, and we hope to be in a position to give a further update on the potential development of a new dental practice in the coming weeks as plans progress.”
“In the meantime, any unregistered patients can access emergency dental care by contacting NHS Forth Valley’s Public Dental Service Dental Advice Line.”
