10th March 2009, Niddrie Square Clinic has a new home:

A new multi-million pound purpose-built dental centre in Glasgow has opened its doors to the public offering a commitment to quality care and excellence. The Scottish Centre for Excellence in Dentistry on the new Watermark Business Park off Govan Road is the brainchild of Arshad Ali, one of the foremost clinicians in the UK.

He has relocated his team from the Niddrie Square Clinic in Glasgow's South Side to the brand new building which is equipped with top of the range equipment and facilities, not just for patients but for his staff as well. There are six surgeries and one operating room on the ground floor level allowing the centre to provide advice and treatment on aesthetic dentistry, implants, endodontics, periodontics, oral and facial surgery, orthodontics, prosthodontics and also hypnotherapy. The team now consists of IS dentists and specialists supported by 18 nursing and administrative staff. Recent additions to the team include John Devine, Consultant Oral and Facial surgeon, Ross Jones, Consultant and Specialist Orthodontist and Krish Bhatia, specialist in Prosthodontics.

The operating room in the centre is linked by two-way radio and video up to a 60 inch television in the seminar room on the first floor, whilst three of the surgeries also benefit from multi-media links to allow for real time training and professional observation. Three surgeries feature operating microscopes whilst the centre also benefits from a purpose-built LDU, as well as rooms for their digital OPT and i-Cat conebeam CT scanner.

There are separate consultation rooms so that patients can discuss their treatment in a more relaxed and less clinical environment as well as a private office for implant co-ordinators to talk patients through possible procedures and treatment. The aim here is to make sure that the patients are kept as relaxed and informed as possible which is sometimes difficult to achieve in the surgery itself.

The reception area has been designed to make sure waiting patients and those that accompany them are as comfortable as possible. A tropical fish tank, widescreen television with free view and digital signage for patient information, water machine, coffee maker and a full stocked fridge with fruit juices and other drinks will make sure that they are thoroughly looked after.

The seminar room on the first floor can accommodate up to 30 delegates and as most of the seminars and training events will be at weekends and evenings the space is also used as a staff room with associated kitchen facilities. It was Arshad's desire that both the patient and staff areas would be fitted out to the same standard to ensure that everyone who visits and works in the centre benefits from the same level of comfort.

The staff also has access to a gym which is accessed through separate male and female changing areas and showers so they can keep fit without leaving work. There is also a call centre staffed by four operators who will endeavour to answer calls within five rings and give callers the best service possible. If all four operators are on the phone, calls are routed to the offices first and then lastly to reception so that patients in the practice have the full attention or staff who is dealing with them.

In keeping with the technologically advanced nature at the new centre, the building is virtually paperless with all patientsí records scanned into the system and available at the touch of a button in the surgeries, offices and reception. The computer systems, hi-spec servers and associated back-ups have been installed by Ian Wilson at 1W Technology Services and they are controlled and stored in a separate server room.

On the first floor, along with the staff gym, seminar room, call centre and server room, there are offices for the clinical support team, postgraduate co-ordinators and Arshad himself. There is also an alternative therapy room where hypnosis and facial rejuvenations, such as fillers and skin peels, will take place. Added to all this there is a purpose-built dental laboratory where the majority of technical work will be carried out on site by the centre's own team or dental technicians.

The fit-out of the building was designed by leading London architect Issy Spektor, who specializes in design tor the dental industry. Corners have been rounded off to give a fluidity and unique feel to the centre. The building is full of subtle yet innovative design features such as a line or coloured LEDs built into the carpet which leads patients from the reception area to the correct corridor and treatment room.

Work started on the building itself in November 2007 and the shell was completed in August last year. The general fit-out was finished by December and the specialist contractors finished their work at the end of January for the first patients to arrive on February 4. Nicola Sturgeon will officially cut the ribbon at a special ceremony on April 28.


27 August 2008, Scottish Centre for Excellence in Dentistry to receive £1.5 million fit out:

The Scottish Centre for Excellence in Dentistry, a £3 million state-of-the-art dentistry facility, is to receive a £1.5 million fit out. The resource, which has recently been completed in the new Watermark Business Park on Govan Road, Glasgow, is expected to set new standards in the fields of dentistry and facial plastic surgery, and is set to become one of the best equipped clinics in the world.

Due to a significant increase in business since its inception in 2001, the clinic has outgrown its original premises in Niddrie Square, prompting a need for a larger, more modern and functional building.

The fit out of the 7,240 sq ft building has been designed by the architect, Issy Spektor at aiBDA in London, who specialises in design for the dental industry.

The front elevation is fully glazed and opens from a reception area to the facilities on the ground floor which comprises seven surgeries, a local decontamination unit, a CT scanner and a digital radiography room. The first floor comprises an administration area, dental laboratory, changing rooms, a seminar room for training and a staff gymnasium.

The Centre has already been constructed and the fit-out commences at the end of August 2008. The Centre is expected to be completed by December 2008.


26 August 2008, Cutting Edge Dentistry Centre to Open in Glasgow Business Park:

Knight Frank's building consultancy team has been appointed to manage a £1.5million fit out for a private, state of the art dentistry centre of excellence in a new business park on the south side of the River Clyde. The Scottish Centre for Excellence in Dentistry is a £3 million facility that has recently been completed as the first of eight units in the new Watermark Business Park on Govan Road, Glasgow.

The stunning resource is expected to set new standards in the fields of dentistry and facial plastic surgery, and is believe to be one of the best equipped clinics in the world. Due to business increasingly significantly since its inception in 2001, the clinic has outgrown its original premises in Niddrie Square, prompting a need for a larger, more modern and functional building.

The fit out of the 7,240 sq ft building has been designed by the architect, Issy Spektor at aiBDA in London, who specializes in design for the dental industry. The front elevation is fully glazed and opens from a reception area to the facilities on the ground floor which comprises seven surgeries, a local decontamination unit, a CT scanner and a digital radiography room. The first floor comprises an administration area, dental laboratory, changing rooms, a seminar room for training and a staff gymnasium.

John Gallagher, partner at Knight Frank who will manage the fit-out, said: "This will be a fantastic facility that will be difficult to surpass in terms of standards and equipment. The dental specialists required a building that was able to cope with the growing demand for their sen/ices, as well as provide space for specialist equipment such as digital radiography and a CT scanner.

"Being located at the newly developed Watermark Business Park means that it is close to a range of transport networks as well as being close to the city centre. The quality of businesses that have already set up in the same location, such as the BBC, is testament to the high standards that this new centre will set."

The new Scottish Centre for Excellence in Dentistry is headed up by Consultant and Specialist, Mr. Arshad Ali. He said, "Our business has grown significantly since our humble beginnings in 2001 when we had just four staff. We now have 14 specialists, along with a support team of 14 nurses and administrative staff. We carry out a wide range of services including restorative dentistry, implantology and facial plastic surgery.

The growing demand for our expertise and services necessitated a move to a first-class, modern facility, containing the most cutting edge equipment, in a location that is central and easily accessible.

"I have no doubt that this new facility will be one of the best equipped in the world and with many of our specialists being experts in their field, I am sure we will provide the highest standards of care and service available in Scotland."

The Centre has already been constructed and the fit-out commences at the end of August 2008. The Centre is expected to be completed by December 2008.


Summer 2008, The Orthodontic Centre - Article from BOSNEWS magazine:

As soon as you arrive at The Orthodontic Centre in Cardiff, you can tell it is different. The whole environment screams "quality" and "attention to detail". This award winning practice was designed and project managed by London Architect, Issy Spektor, and all internal building works and fit out was carried out by Cordery Build Ltd. The centre has 8 chairs and the surgeries are designed with a minimalist approach to keep them clutter free and hygienic.

The 18 PC monitors with remote control keyboards and mice to eliminate cables are part of an integrated system that runs throughout the Practice and offers complete digitalisation including radiographs, photographs, clinical records and administration. All computer screens are flush mounted in purpose built cabinetry above glass worktops which feature integrated no touch taps. All the cupboards are hidden to create the perfect environment.

The whole practice revolves around the central sterilisation unit which incorporates an SES Little Sister Washer/Disinfector. Meeting all relevant National and European Regulations, this central sterilisation unit was the first consideration when planning began for The Orthodontic Centre. Back in 2001, when Viren Patel was considering relocating his Cardiff based practice, he had two main aims in his vision: Firstly, to provide an environment that was physically able to complement the clinical skills that his team could deliver. Secondly, a jaw dropping, award winning architecture inspired by his vision to have the best environment for patients to be treated in and his team to work in. Viren spent nearly a year trying to gel with an architect who could deliver what he wanted and his meeting with Issy Spektor was the start of fulfilling his dream.

The "fit out" by Cordery Build was exceptional, both within time and budget and their professional and courteous manner meant that they were a joy to work with. The feedback from patients, parents, referring dentists and other orthodontists who have visited us has all been positive and has contributed to the continued growth at The Orthodontic centre.


11 April 2008, Aberdeen orthodontic centre open for business:

A MILLION-POUND orthodontic centre offering NHS care for children in Grampian has opened. The surgery is the first of its kind to be opened in the region - which is suffering a chronic shortage of dentists and orthodontists - for several years. Politicians welcomed the move, seeing it as a means to reduce the wait for treatment which currently stands at five years.

The design of the practice was so it would be child-friendly yet functional, and it even includes a plasma-screen television and air conditioning in the reception area for patients. The clinic also offers full access for disabled people. Children will receive a certificate when they complete their treatment with "before" and "after" photographs. Financial support is provided by Derek Chappell and Ronald Russell, who established a local private hospital and other hospitals worldwide.
