Practice Information

Giffnock Orthodontic Centre is a long-established practice with a modern and welcoming approach to patient care. We accept patients from anywhere in Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland. Although to help you achieve the best treatment you would have to attend the practice at least every 3 months. We offer several types of braces that have been tried and tested over the years to ensure you the best possible smile.

Our experienced and friendly team of Specialist Orthodontists and Orthodontic Nurses would be delighted to welcome you to the practice should you wish to come and see us for a complimentary consultation.
