Hamilton dental duo bids farewell to patients after 40 years in the town
A pair of Hamilton dentists has bid farewell to patients after tending to teeth in the town for 40 years.
Duncan Morton and Hamish Borland have handed over the reins of the Borland and Morton Practice and are now preparing to enjoy a well-deserved break. The duo is retiring after working in the industry for over 50 years. Having been established by James Borland in the 1950s, Duncan joined in 1977, with Hamish becoming part of the team in 1981. The practice has now been taken over by Paul and Martin Allen. Paul has worked at the clinic since graduating from Glasgow University in 2011 and it was always the plan to assume control with his brother, Martin, once Hamish and Duncan decided to retire.
To send the popular duo on their way in style, staff and former colleagues organised a party at the practice. Over the course of the last four decades, Hamish and Duncan have taken great pride in treating local families, and in many cases, have got to know several generations. Although dentistry has changed and evolved over the years, the focus has always been the same for the duo and the practice is founded on providing first-class dental care in a comfortable and relaxed setting.
On hanging up their dental utensils and bidding a fond farewell to everyone at the surgery, Hamish and Duncan wished the new owners, Paul and Martin well and added that they couldn’t have chosen better successors.
New owner, Martin, said that it was an incredibly exciting time and that he and his brother were thrilled to be taking the wheel of such a well-respected practice. The surgery will continue to offer family-friendly, affordable NHS and private treatment.Join this Discussion
