Finalist - FMC Dental Industry Awards 2020

  • October 30, 2020
We're delighted to announce that we have been named as a Finalist in the FMC Dental Industry Awards 2020 for advertisement of the year!
Amazing news! We're just so pleased! This year, our clinic didn't enter any awards in light of the Covid situation and the impact it's had on the dental industry. Out of the blue, however, and as a complete surprise to us, FMC approached us and were so impressed with our recent Halloween advert that they encouraged us to enter this into the Awards competition and we're chuffed to have made the finals!
Thank you so much FMC!!
It's a lovely bit of news at this time! Looking forward to being part of the virtual awards on 4th November!

Happy 2nd Birthday TOC!

Featured Article in Scottish Dental Magazine

  • June 27, 2020
We wanted to share with you our featured article in the most recent issue of Scottish Dental Magazine, which was printed in their June issue.
This is one of the most well known and respected magazine publications in Scottish Dentistry and they have been a real support, not just to our clinic, but to dentists and the dental industry throughout Scotland, particularly during the lockdown period, which have been difficult times indeed.
Thank you to them; Ann Craib and Will Peakin in particular, for all that you do!

Opening After Lockdown

  • June 20, 2020
The Orthodontic Clinic - opening after lockdown
With the recent announcement from Nicola Sturgeon, dental practices in Scotland are now allowed to reopen for urgent cases on Monday 22nd June.
We're delighted to be able to open on Monday, but during this initial phase, we have been given very strict restrictions by the government on the number of patients that we will be allowed to see.
This has been capped at 10 patients per day for each practice until further notice. We are also only allowed to see emergency cases for now - “those patients that have broken or damaged appliances causing pain that cannot be managed by advice alone” (British Orthodontic Society).
As we return to work, please be understanding of the fact that there is a large backlog of patients that we need to catch up with.
Throughout lockdown, we have recorded all patients that have had their appointments cancelled as well as those that have contacted with orthodontic emergencies. Emergency patients have been placed on our priority list and they will be the first patients that we will be contacting when we are open, taking into account the type (urgency and risk) of the problem as well as respecting the date order in which these problems have been reported to us.
When we are eventually allowed to, (and after emergency cases have been seen), we will see less urgent cases and then, finally, patients requiring routine care.
We will try our best to see all our patients, as best we can, given the restrictions imposed on us. Thank you for your kind understanding and patience.
We will be contacting all our patients in due course so please simply await an email or text message. We will only have skeleton staff working so our phone lines will not be manned regularly and email remains the best form of contact for now. If you need to speak to us, please email us, leaving your number and one of our team will call you back.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you back at TOC!

Protective Screens

  • May 19, 2020
We're sharing a few photos with you during this lockdown time to let you know that a few members of our team are still working hard in the clinic (respecting social distancing!), making sure our practice is doing everything we can to protect and look after our patients and team.
Amongst other things, we have ordered protective screens for our reception area, we're now receiving new PPE - here we are trying it out!
We're also busy looking at our appointment book and triaging our patients to try and schedule you in for when we can re-open.
We miss you! Please stay safe and keep well.

Easter Wishes

  • April 12, 2020
These are uncertain times for us all. Our TOC family want to send you Easter wishes and hope that you and your families are keeping safe and well.
We have been making Easter eggs at home to make them look like ourselves - each has been hand drawn and decorated by our team.
Thank you to all of those who are still carrying on working to help us get through this period - workers from the NHS, care homes, police, supermarkets, post office, government sector, accountant firms, volunteers, and all the other key workers.
We appreciate all you do. Thank you to everyone else who is also playing their part by staying at home.
In these difficult times, we're all going through challenges, but there are some groups and families that are facing even harder struggles. Our clinic would like to try and help them through this pandemic.
Let's be kind and grateful to each other.
We will select 3 people at random to choose what local cause/ charity you feel needs help right now so that we can donate £500 to each of these. (This will run till next Sunday)


  • March 14, 2020
Dear TOC Patients and friends,
In these uncertain times, we wanted to you update you on the steps The Orthodontic Clinic are taking to help minimise the spread of COVID-19.
We are continuing to follow and monitor official guidance from the UK Government and Health Protection Scotland carefully.
The safety of our patients and team members remains our highest priority. We take pride in maintaining high standards of cleanliness and hygiene. In response to the coronavirus, we have taken additional measures to make our cleaning and hygiene protocols even more rigorous:
- Our clinical and cleaning teams are receiving ongoing briefings on prevention and enhanced cleaning protocols with the emphasis on hand hygiene and surface decontamination.
- We have increased the frequency of cleaning of high contact point areas (including reception area and waiting room, door handles, toilets, etc.) and have continued the use of hospital-grade disinfectant.
- Providing antibacterial hand sanitisers to patients.
- Working together with the British Dental Association and NHS Grampian regarding evolving local health protocols for dentistry.
We ask anybody attending our clinic to consider carefully any potential risk to others and DO NOT ATTEND OUR CLINIC if you:-
- have a fever, cough and/ or difficulty breathing
- have come into contact with anyone who has been diagnosed as having COVID-19 or who has these symptoms, or who has been advised to self-isolate
If the answer to any of these questions is YES, please call the clinic on 01224 611633 or email to reschedule your appointment. Please understand that at this time, there may be unusually long wait times on our phone lines, so please be patient.
Our emails will be acknowledged usually within 1-2 working days at this time. Also during this period and for any late cancellations due to limiting the spread of Coronavirus, there will be no late cancellation fees applied (our normal policy of giving 2 working days’ notice will be waived).
Thank you in helping us to combat the spread of COVID-19.

Fly Cup Fund Raising

  • February 28, 2020
Dear patients, colleagues, friends and families we would like to share this wonderful charity with you.
The Fly Cup and part of the Garioch 5/10k running team to raise funds.
"The Fly Cup" and is based in Inverurie. At the Fly Cup, we provide training and employment opportunities in the catering and hospitality sector for adults with learning disabilities. Within our premises, we provide our trainees with opportunities in our coffee shop, bakery, kitchen, meeting rooms and office environment to build their social skills, confidence, self-esteem, independence and ultimately their employability. At the moment we have around 41 trainees.
Our current funding comes from Local Authority Contracts, Grants, individual and company donations as well as from cafe/bakery sales and the hire of our meeting rooms. As you can imagine there is never much left over to continue to improve and progress to the next level. Any size of donation would be fantastic as we are aware that we all receive numerous requests for help.

Royal College of Surgeons and Physicians of Glasgow

  • November 24, 2019

We are so proud of our very own Dr Lisa Currie (Clinical Director of The Orthodontic Clinic) who is now a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons and Physicians of Glasgow (RCSP Glasgow).

The graduation ceremony was held on Friday 22nd November at the University of Glasgow. A very proud day indeed...

She is already a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (Faculty of Dental Surgery) and was awarded this through examination in 2006.

This year, she was honoured to be elected to receive a Fellowship of the Faculty of Dental Surgery (Orthodontics) from the RCPS Glasgow.

Becoming a Fellow is an acknowledgement of an individual's contribution to the dental profession, its standards and practice. It's truly an honour.

Fellowship of the Faculty of Dental Surgery (FDS) is offered to dental surgeons who, in the opinion of College, have made substantial contributions to their specialty or who are senior members of the dental profession and whose published works and attainments are, in the opinion of the Council, of such distinction as to justify election.

Congratulations Dr Currie on this outstanding achievement!

British Dental Association Group of Dundee and Perth

  • October 3, 2019

Dr Lisa Currie was invited by the Dean of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, Professor Graham Ogden, to speak for the British Dental Association Group of Dundee and Perth last night.

Dundee University is Lisa's alma mater, where she graduated in Dentistry with Honours in 1996. The lecture was given to an audience of both hospital and general dentists and was titled "The management of snoring and mild sleep apnoea - a dental perspective."

Lisa has carried out a Masters research degree in this subject and it is a field of dentistry that she has a special interest in.

She spoke about the role of dentists in screening and managing these types of patients and the various oral appliances that can be used to treat the condition.

Approximately 50 people attended and it was a real honour to be invited to speak at the University of Dundee where she graduated 23 years ago.

The Orthodontic Clinic provides anti-snoring treatment and both Dr Currie and Dr Rodolfino are accredited practitioners for the Somnowell appliance.

Children 1st Charity

  • November 24, 2017

We feel it’s very important to give back to our local community and so we looked around for local charities to see what we could get involved in. We came across the charity Children 1st and read about the amazing work they do for vulnerable and abused children in Scotland.

Their vision for the future is a happy, healthy, safe and secure for every child and young person in Scotland. At The Orthodontic Clinic, we see and treat so many children and it really struck a chord with us. After learning more about them and seeing some of the work they do, we felt very inspired and wanted to make a contribution to this very worthwhile cause.

We were honoured to have been invited by the charity to the annual Children 1st charity ball. Our directors attended this wonderful evening on 17th November and met some truly great people who work for and contribute to the charity.

The charity celebrated 30 years this year, so it was an even more special occasion. A evening really highlighted the very important work that they do and ways in which everyone and anyone can help.

Please do share this and by doing so, we hope more people can help the Children 1st charity. Thank you.
