Call Now on 0141 638 0046


The Chief Dental Officer for Scotland has now ordered the CLOSURE of all dental practices in Scotland. This means Rolfe Dental must remain “ CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE “ and we will not be allowed to treat ANY patients, even Emergencies. If you do have a dental emergency you should still call the practice number 0141 638 0046 and your Emergency will be triaged by one of our Dentists.

During this call they will either;
- Offer advice
- Offer a prescription for antibiotics to be collected from a local pharmacy
- Refer you on to the Public Dental Services in extreme emergency situations

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused but we must comply with this official order from the authorities, which has been issued in the best interests of the general public, to Stop the spread of Coronavirus. We hope to be able to open again soon and will of course keep you updated throughout.

During these difficult times we would especially like to say a special thanks to all our NHS colleagues and other front line service staff members doing an amazing job in extraordinary times. Our three dentists have all volunteered to serve within the emergency dental hubs or wherever the NHS requires and we are proud to help where we can. Whilst many of you will be missing your family and friends today, rest assured your actions are saving lives and will shorten this crisis. We look forward to being able to look after our own patients as soon as possible.

Stay Safe
