Broxden Dental Centre up and running

Sample News Big

A brand new, state of the art dental centre in Perth has opened its doors to the public.

The Broxden Dental Centre, which cost 3.85 million pounds to develop, has been designed and constructed by Archial, one of Scotland’s most reputable architectural firms.

The new centre was commissioned by NHS Tayside and will provide a range of general dental services, as well as excellent training and learning facilities for dental students; undergraduate spaces are available for NHS Education Scotland and NHS Tayside.

The new facility has opened on the Broxden Business Park; the centre is located on the outskirts of Perth, next to the A9 trunk road, which connects Inverness and Perth.

Graham Witters, a senior architect at Archial, said that the construction project was challenging because the site posed certain challenges. The site now has a central courtyard, which enables natural light to stream through the building and there are two storeys, which help to prevent noise from the busy trunk road. The interior of the centre has been designed to relax patients and put their minds at ease. The decoration is bright and modern and there are impressive contemporary features throughout the building.

The centre has also been designed to be as environmentally friendly as possible; solar panels have been fitted to generate power, the heating system has been designed to be more efficient than traditional heating systems and the lights are fitted with sensors so that they will only function when people are using the facility.
