Welcome to Chu's Dental Care

Family Run Independent Dentist With 30 Years Experience

Chu's Dental Care is a family run independent NHS dental practice with the aim to provide dental care to Dunfermline and the surrounding areas. The practice has been established for over 30 years within the centre of Dunfermline town.

All patients are registered under the NHS, entitling them to a free check-up every six months and the full range of treatment available on the NHS.

In addition, treatment such as aesthetic crowns and bridges, tooth whitening and white fillings on back teeth are available privately.

We refer to both NHS and private specialists for advice and treatments such as orthodontic treatment, oral surgery and implants when required.

 

CORONOVIRUS UPDATE 21/05/2021

Whilst you will notice other settings start to open up at corovirus restrictions start to lift , there are still a lot of restrictions on dental practice for patient and staff safety. Limiting numbers inside the building, coronovirus protocols for most treatment procedures and increased cleaning times for all clinical and public areas mean we are still at a very reduced capacity for appointments.

Checkups: We are still being kept very busy with emergency and urgent treatments, although we have started to see other routine treatments as required as we are now able to carry out the full range of routine dental treatment. We endeavour to carry out full examinations for anyone that comes for an emergency appointment, and if you have any issues at all please call the practice on 01383727771. The reality is that there is a long wait time for exams and an even longer waiting time for treatment. If you are not having any issues please continue to wait until we contact you for a checkup if you can, priority for exam appointments will be for those with any problems (toothache, lost fillings, fractures teeth, sensitivity, bleeding gums) and for children.

At this present time we regret we are not able to take on new patients for routine care, if you are an unregistered patient with a dental emergency, please call NHS 24 on 111 in the first instance.

Best wishes to everyone,

Chu's Dental Care Team

 

CORONOVIRUS UPDATE 05/01/2021

Update following the latest update from the first minister:

We will remain open and are still able to provide NHS and private treatments as we have been doing previously as dental treatment is deemed essential. We are still working at reduced capacity due to covid regulations/ increased cleaning times which ultimately means we have longer waiting times than we would like.

As before, our priority is emergency and urgent care so please give the practice a phone if you have any concerns.

We completely respect those that may wish to reschedule their appointment due to the new lockdown, but we cant emphasise enough that we work in a very safe environment due to the mountains of PPE some of you will have seen us in! (Call us astronauts/darth vaders cousin!)

Hope this gives some clarity on where we are at. As always call us on 01383 727771 9-5 Mon-Fri if you have an queries or issues.

We will update you all if anything changes.

Best wishes to everyone,

Chus Dental Care Team
