Kitty Lamont

Hi, My name is Kitty. I decided to start a career in dentistry because I like working with the public and I love to work in a team. 1Smile has been a great opportunity for me as I have made lots of new friends and have been able to enhance my skills such as my communication skills, organisational skills and being able to work under pressure. I like working along side both the dentist and hygienist as they are both very different which allows me to experience every aspect of the role. So far I have loved my time working in 1Smile.When I’m not in work I like to spend time with my family, play my flute and go out with friends for coffee.

Providing excellent customer care is extremely rewarding to me. I am proud to be apart of such a friendly and dedicated practice, knowing as a team we will help our patients achieve a healthy and beautiful smile they can be proud of.

When I am not working, I love to spend time with my family and friends doing things such as going road trips, trying new restaurants and treating myself to some shopping.

who we are

A New 1 Smile, A New approach

Welcome to 1Smile Dental Clinic Glasgow. Our clinic is situated in the heart of Glasgow City Centre, just 1 minute walk from Glasgow Central Station. We aim to distinguish ourselves as a city centre practice offering a full range of NHS and Private treatments in such a convenient location.

Although our clinic is newly built, we have been providing dental care to patients in the City Centre for a number of years. We were previously based across the street on the 3rd floor of 12 Renfield Street. After making the decision to move premises to our new state of the art clinic at 13 Renfield Street, we have been in a position to take on more patients and also offer a wider range of appointment times. Our ground floor premises also allow us to see disabled patients in wheelchairs and families with babies who couldn’t manage the stairs at the old clinic. We are extremely proud of our new practice and we hope you love it as much as we do!

Smile Makeovers

You come to us with you goals and vision for a dream smile. We will digitally plan and curate a treatment plan that will help you to achieve that smile.

Private Dental Treatments

Giving shape to your Smile,
Life and More.


Dental Implants - a long-term treatment, great for replicating a missing tooth.
A dental implant is guided into our bone giving maximum stability for eating and smiling


We hand layer composite or white filling material onto the surface of your teeth. This allows us to change the shapes / sizes / lengths and colour of your teeth in one single appointment.


If you have crooked or crowded teeth, overbite, gaps/spaces. This is corrected with the use of orthodontics. Using either ceramic braces or Invisible Aligners.


Discrete, clear aligners that are comfortable to wear and straighten your teeth in as little as two months without interrupting your working or social life!

Once your teeth have been straightened - it is important to wear retainers to keep your teeth in their new straight position and so we offer complimentary retainers after your treatment to ensure that your teeth stay in their new position for longer.

Teeth Straightening as part of your smile make-over.
In some cases your smile makeover may be more complicated and require additional steps. 

The great thing about straightening teeth first is that we can position the teeth in the perfect place to allow us to design your smile for the best outcome. The best way to think about this process is that braces will make your teeth straight - however you may not like the overall shape or colour of your natural teeth. This allows us to then place composite veneers or Porcelain veneers onto your teeth in the most minimally invasive way possible to complete your dream smile.


Why invest in a smile makeover?

Your smile is a crucial part of how you express yourself.  Being able to smile with confidence can make a huge difference to your self-confidence.

It can also help you when you are presenting yourself to other people.  Even when you’re working over videocall, a beautiful smile gets noticed.  It’s even more visible in the real world.
