Welcome to Botanics Dental Care, a Private and NHS dentist in Glasgow.

We hope that you will find our practice welcoming and that you will feel completely relaxed in our company.

We welcome patients of all ages, making us the perfect choice for a family practice.

As well as general dentistry treatments, we offer a variety of cosmetic dental treatments such as teeth whitening, implants and veneers. In addition, we also offer some of the most modern orthodontic treatments, including Invisalign braces.

Invisalign is a popular removable brace that can completely transform a smile in as little as 6 months. Totally invisible and comfortable to wear, Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional metal braces.

If you struggle from bruxism, otherwise known as teeth grinding, our dentists can help you. Teeth grinding is a common problem that can cause headaches, jaw pain and make day to day activities such as eating and talking challenging. Discuss the options for tooth grinding treatments with one of our dentists.

Our team are passionate about providing you with the best possible care. Our dentists are continuously advancing professionally in time with new developments in the dental industry. This means that we can offer the most modern treatments to our patients.

If you have any questions regarding our practice, our team or the treatments we have available to patients, please get in touch with us and we will be happy to answer any queries you may have.

We look forward to seeing you Botanics Dental Care.

    How was your welcome to the clinic?

    Was your treatment plan carefully explained to you?
    it was

    Were you relaxed during treatment?
    As relaxed as I could be

    Would you recommend this dentist to your family?

    I recently had a bone augmentation procedure at Botanics Dental Care. Although this could not be described as a joyful experience, it was necessary, and I was made very comfortable and reassured throughout, by the team. As frequently is the case, it was also not as bad as I had imagined. I was given a full explanation of what would be done and kept informed during the procedure. I felt totally confident in their expertise and care and this proved to be well founded. Well done Colin and team and thank you all Moira
