Due to the coronavirus outbreak and in accordance with instructions from Scottish Government and the Chief Dental Officer all general dental practices in Scotland have been ordered to close from Monday the 23rd of March until further notice.

One of our dentists will be available for telephone advice during the hours of 9:00am until 5:00pm Monday to Friday. Please telephone 01786 473579 and listen to the answer machine message as it will instruct you on how to access emergency advice and care.

Out-with of these hours patient’s should telephone NHS24 on 111.

All scheduled appointments are cancelled until further notice and we will re-schedule appointments once the practice is allowed to open. If you think we do not have a current contact number for you then please could you email us at

Please do not phone the practice regarding the changing of appointments.

Symptomatic or COVID-19 positive patients with an emergency should still phone us and you will be triaged and if required you will be referred on to the Public Dental Service at Falkirk Community Hospital (FK1 5QE) who are set up for any treatment that you may require.

We hope that you are all staying at home and staying healthy.

We will be back to normal as soon as it is possible.

Kindest regards,

John & Jennifer Denham and all the Team at Platt & Common
