Meet our Clinical Dental Technician

Discover why this is great for you

At Scottish Denture Clinic we are proud to always have our clinical dental technician onsite. Rob Leggett has undertaken additional years of study and training to allow him to work in a patient-facing role, meaning that your denture consultation will be carried right here in our clinic with him. This gives you the opportunity to work closely with the team who will craft your dentures, providing your own input into how you’d like your final smile to look.

Rob will also fit your dentures for you, checking the comfort, function and, of course, the aesthetics. If any adjustments are required, he will ensure these are carried out so that you are entirely happy with your new smile.
