Our mission is to deliver pain free dentistry to the people of Hawick
Every member of the North Bridge Dental team is devoted to ensuring that their skills and knowledge remain at the forefront of dentistry, so we can deliver the best *pain free dentistry in Hawick.
Many first-time dentistry patients to North Bridge are amazed and reassured by our approach. We often have patients tell us that they have a feeling their previous dentist experiences of quick visits for a ‘check-up’ are taking a ‘patch-up’ approach to their mouths, which may not be the best in the long-term. Technology and preventive science have come a long way in dentistry.
