Coronavirus Update from Dr Murphy

Since 13th July 2020 we have been providing routine dental care to the majority of our patients. It doesn’t sit well with us that we have been asked to consider out of date PPE for NHS patients. Neither does it
seem reasonable that the Scottish Government have persisted with the valuation of NHS dental treatment at 80% of its precovid value.

To be clear, that value was £9.96 for a small filling and £14.60 for a scale and polish. There is absolutely no way that we can afford to pay our nurses, reception staff, hygienists snd dentists from 80% of such paltry offerings. We cannot imagine that there are other professional people who would deem to share such remuneration with multiple staff and be able to pay their other bills in the current climate.

In summary, the act of dental treatment deserves fair value. The Scottish Government must consider that value as they must surely have done over the last six months. Until then, we will continue to treat the symptoms of dental disease and diagnose those conditions as we might normally.

The provision of final restorations and long term care under the NHS remains a matter for the Scottish Government.

Please note that ordinarily, working patients pay 80% of their NHS treatment costs. For more than 6 months, not a single payment has been taken in contributions towards Scottish NHS dentistry.

We believe that this represents the utmost
neglect of administrative duty which will incur significant damage to the Oral Health of Scotland’s population.

We have early evidence that the levels of treatment activity are worse within high deprivation areas- an assessment which we believe to reflect most poorly on the handling of dentistry by the Scottish Government throughout the SARS-CoV-2 crisis.

Please support Scottish dentists in their campaign for a better NHS.
Kind Regards
Dr Brendan Murphy and staff.

Curious about Six Month Smiles, Invisalign or other braces treatment?

We strapped a GoPro camera to Dr Murphy's head (at some risk to his circulation as it turned out!) while he checked Rebecca's braces.

Recent Reviews of Crystal Dental Care

I had an excellent service from Brendan and his team. I was nervous about getting an implant but the process was explained in detail and when the day came, I found it a more pleasant experience than having a conventional filling! (How does he manage to give painless injections?) I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this practice and would encourage anyone hesitating to consider cosmetic dentistry to speak to Brendan.

Gordon Chapman

I heard that Glasgow prices were competitive for cosmetic dentistry and I'm up there from the midlands regularly seeing family. I've been getting invisible braces treatment and can't believe how they've moved in only 3 months. Brendan Murphy's reputation and the way he dealt with my online assurances etc - I knew what the cost was before he saw me.....that sealed it. Now I can't wait for the final result-it's been painless and totally hassle free.

John Dobson

I'm apprehensive about going to the dentist and they were quite disarming. I didn't feel hurried or crowded. Quite the opposite, it was relaxing. Dr. Murphy is very professional but at the same time personable. They didn't try to oversell and the work completed was very high quality. I would recommend Crystal Dental Care in particular if you prefer a more considerate approach.

Michael Gallacher

I cannot rate Dr Brendan Murphy and his team highly enough. The service I received was excellent, everything was fully explained and I was put at ease from the beginning to end of my treatment.

Catherine Moran

Moved to Glasgow recently and a friend recommended Crystal Dental Care. Needed two porcelain veneers replaced and asked for whitening too. Delighted with the entire process. All staff were friendly and professional, Brendan explained process clearly and the procedures were painless. Very happy!

Maureen Finn

I can’t recommend Brendan and his team highly enough. They really took the time to put me at ease and explain the process and different stages I would go through during my treatment. Over the years I have dealt with many different dentists, having cracked my front teeth at an early age, and can honestly say I have never dealt with anyone who I felt I could trust as much as Brendan. I would now never go anywhere else for my dental care and my daughter and partner now also attend Brendan’s practice.
