Practice Information

Bank Street Dental Centre has been providing dental care to the people of Irvine and the surrounding community for over 50 years.

Our team of highly experienced staff ensure a welcoming visit.

We are able to provide a full range of treatments under the NHS as well as treatment out with the scope of NHS. If we cannot provide treatment as required, we have a network of professional colleagues who are happy to see patients on referral.  These may be within the local hospital service or may be independent practices working within or out with the NHS.

Opening Hours

Monday – Thursday 9am – 5:30pm
Friday 9am – 4:30pm

Closed for lunch each day 1-2pm


We have access to surgeries, reception area and toilet facilities on ground floor level allowing full disabled access.



Appointments can be arranged by calling into the practice in person or contacting the reception staff on 01294 272644.
If you are a new patient to the practice you will be asked to complete a preregistration form. This is to allow the receptionists to enter your details into our system. You will be asked to complete a medical history form and bring it to your initial appointment.



24-hour notice must be given for all cancellations. Failure to do so or non-attendance will result in a charge for wasted clinical time. Reception will be unable to book further appointments until the account is paid.
