In January, Fergus attended an excellent course in Berne, Switzerland advancing his surgical skills in the field of implant dentistry.  The course was titled "Masters course in Guided Bone Regeneration and Sinus Grafting Procedures".  This course took the format of live skills surgery which allowed him to observe a surgical expert performing some common procedures with an amazing audiovisual set-up which allowed him to see everything in great detail with the option to ask questions.  There was also hands-on components which allowed him to try out the latest techniques and materials in this field.  Attendance at masters courses such as this allows Fergus to bring advances in implant dentistry back to our practice. 

One of our dentists Fergus McClafferty successfully completed a gruelling 81 mile cycle in the Etape Caledonia annual event held in Pitlochory and surrounding countryside.  Together with 3 others they managed to raise in excess of £4,000 for MacMillan Cancer Support.  £500 of this was raised thanks to the kind generosity of Weir & McClafferty’s dental patients.   A big thank-you to all who kindly donated to a very worthwhile cause close to all our hearts.


We are delighted to announce the appointment of Miss Rebecca Conaghan.  Rebecca graduated with Distinction from Dundee University Dental School in 2008. She has recently completed her vocational training with a similar family practice in Paisley.  Rebecca has excellent communication skills, comes highly recommended and we are sure will be an asset to our dental team.
