Oban Dental Clinic was the first clinic to become part of Scottish Dental Care group in 2016. Situated on the west coast of Scotland, Oban is a busy tourist town and is the gateway to the highlands and islands of Scotland’s west coast. With the highlands on your doorstep, you will experience a fantastic quality of life in Oban - the bay, the islands, the white-sand beaches, the lochs and the highlands will provide the ingredients for a rich outdoor life.
Within an hour you can drive to Glencoe to the north, or to Loch Awe and Loch Lomond to the south. Hop on a ferry for a day trip to the Isles of Mull, Colonsay, Lismore or Tiree. The nearest city is Glasgow and there are good transport links throughout Scotland and beyond.
Our 4-surgery clinic is a superb modern facility within the busy Lorn and Islands Hospital, you will join a team of medical professionals and will receive fantastic medical support from your colleagues. The surgeries are bright, modern, air-conditioned, and equipped with modern technology including the use of an iTero scanner – everything you would expect from a state-of-the-art clinic.
