On behalf of our dental team welcome to Burnbank Dental Care.  We are a modern dental practice located in the Burnbank Centre area of Hamilton.

We offer a range of treatments and are committed to providing a much needed service to the highest standards for the community.  We are an NHS practice but also offer a variety of private dental treatments.

At Burnbank Dental Care we focus on tailoring dental treatments to meet each individual’s needs. We pride ourselves in putting each patient at ease and making every experience a relaxing one.

Burnbank Dental Care has been well established for over 20 years. We moved to our brand new modern purpose built building with state of the art equipment in 2012. We have free on street parking with ground level disabled access.

All of our staff are highly experienced, friendly and always happy to help with any enquiries.

Disabled Access

Our practice is all on the one level and has a disabled access button to enter and exit. Our surgeries are wheelchair friendly and we have a disabled toilet with a raised seat, lowered sink and am “emergency cord” installed which sets an alarm off for staff or carer to help if needed. The reception desk has enhanced accessibility, it has a lowered section and allows visual communication at seated height with a kneehole recess.

Equipment Sterilisation

We have installed the most up to date sterilisation equipment, as effective decontamination is essential for the safe provision of dental services and the protection of the dental team.

Evening Appointments

We offer late night appointments on Mondays for both dentists and hygienists. Contact us to book now.

Emergency Appointments

We offer same day emergency appointments. Please phone up first thing in the morning to book an emergency appointment in order for us to be able to offer you same day appointment.

If Burnbank Dental Care is closed please phone NHS 24 on 111 (Calls to NHS 24 are free) and they will give you full details on how to access emergency dental treatment outwith our normal working hours.
