Three Towns Dental Care is based in North Ayrshire with three practices: one based in Saltcoats, one in Stevenston and one in Kilwinning. There is only five minutes drive between the practices.
Saltcoats practice is based in the pedestrianised town centre. Free car parking is available at the nearby sea-front car park and to the rear of the practice. The train station is only three minutes walk with regular services to Glasgow Central with only 35 minutes journey time.
All practices are an easy drive away from the busy city towards the coast. Glasgow is approximately 45 minutes and Paisley approximately 35 minutes by car.
Saltcoats practice has developed greatly over the past four years and now has six modern fully equipped surgeries with fibre optics, rotary endo, ultrasonic scaler, etc. An LDU is operational and fully compliant with current guidelines. Disabled access is available for patients with fully modern shop front premises.
Stevenston practice has been established for over fourteen years and in July 2010 we moved to our brand new purpose-built practice which are situated in the town centre next to the GP practice and library. Free car parking is available very close to the practice. The practice has two modern fully-equipped surgeries along with a fully compliant LDU. It also has a large meeting/training room. Disabled access is available throughout these premises. Both practices are fully computerised with Kodak R4.
Over 97% of the work which we do is NHS and we are fully committed to providing NHS treatment. Our mission is to provide the highest standard of care, treatment and service to our patients.
Simon Morrow is the Principal and Clinical Director of Three Towns Dental Care and has established and developed the business since graduating from Glasgow in 1996. Simon has been a VT trainer since 2005. Four of our VDPs have continued to work as associates in the practice. Simon passed the Post Graduate Diploma in Conscious Sedation in Dentistry at Newcastle University in 2013. He is involved in several local and national dental commitees and is a Practice Inspector for NHS A & A and Sedation Inspector for NHS GG&C and NHS Lanarkshire.
We have a friendly supportive team including eight associates who operate either in one or both of the practices. Our Operations Director, Sharon Morrow, manages the business and is a fully qualified general nurse and dental nurse as well as being a NES Trainer and marker for the Practice Manager Vocational Training Scheme. Sharon carries out all the pre- assessments for sedation in the practice along with the dentists. We also have a Nurse Manager and Senior Nurse who manage the day-to-day staff rotas and claim management.
We are a well established Childsmile practice with two qualified Childsmile nurses. Childsmile is offered at both practices and is embeded within the child exam. We have been involved with Childsmile from the inception of the pilot in 2005 and so have a vast amount of experience and currently are providing the most Childsmile Practice interactions in NHS Ayrshire & Arran.
We are always developing as a team and business to ensure the patient has the best experience possible when they attend Three Towns Dental Care. We are very committed to supporting staff with CPD requirements and have a rolling programme in place for in-house verifiable CPD to be provided to all our team.
