About Us

About Us

We are a friendly, six surgery practice situated in Ayr Town Centre, dedicated to providing high quality dental treatment.   

Our main aim is the prevention of dental disease at all stages of life and provide high quality treatment in a relaxing environment by professional staff. We also aim to provide an exceptional level of patient care and customer service.  

Advances in dentistry have never been as rapid as now and we endeavour to constantly bring you the best of these advances whilst not discarding tried and tested techniques.  We house a spectacular Cerec Machine, which allows us to provide on-the-day crowns.  We also have Panoral and CBCT scanners to give dentists an in-depth picture of everything in our mouth that may not be visible to the naked eye.  


The practice is located in Barns Street in Ayr Town Centre. Barns Street is near the main shopping area of the High Street and also near to Ayr Bus and Railway Stations.

We have full disabled access available at the rear of the practice. If this facility is required, then please contact our reception staff to arrange a suitable appointment.


The NHS dental service is a 3rd party provider in healthcare terms – you are the 1st party, the practice is the 2nd party and the NHS is the 3rd party. This means that some or all of your dental treatment is subsidised by central government:

Full subsidy – All under-26 years of age, expectant and nursing mothers and those receiving certain benefits.

Part subsidy – Everybody who is not in one of the categories above. NHS subsidy is currently 20%. That means you pay 80% of your dental fees for NHS treatment carried out.

The NHS provides a large range of services. However, there are exclusions and alternatives that we think you should be aware of. If there are options available for your dental care, we will outline and explain these to you to allow you to make an informed choice as to how you wish to proceed.

    Karen Lunardi
  • I have been terrified of dentists all my life due to being brought up in the 1960s. I was put at ease the moment I walked in to surgery and had complete trust in Lorna Johnstone. I will be recommending this practice to everyone I know. Thank you
