Top About page


Dental Shetland opened in Lerwick in 2008.  We offered dentistry for over 45 years and were passionate about dentistry.  As a team we were committed to keeping track of the latest trends in Dentistry for your benefit.  We were registered with the General Dental Council and the British Dental Association.  Our nurses are NEBDN Qualified.

We were proud to offer a high standard of professional Dental Care for the whole family.  We all regularly attended Continuing Professional Dental training to be up to date and able to offer you cutting edge dentistry.

David has gone to be with his Lord & Saviour in heaven and the practice is permanently closed.

The team was a hard-working, enthusiastic & fun team & kept on top of all the newest regulations and laws concerning Dentistry.   They enjoyed working together providing the best possible Dental care for all the patients. Always adhering to the GDC Standards of Care.  During the pandemic crisis, they were there for the patients keeping to the highest standards of cross infection control as usual and adhering to the additional PPE guidelines, with no government support as they were 'private'.

They thank their patients for all their support.
