We are two family run NHS dental practices based in the Corstorphine and East Craigs areas of Edinburgh. We are committed to providing high quality NHS family dental care, which always includes a free check-up. As well as providing great general and preventative care, we also offer a fantastic range of cosmetic treatments.
Our friendly and welcoming team provide exceptional dentistry for all members of the family. The majority of our patients come to us following a recommendation from an existing patient.
If you are looking for the convenience of dental appointments before work, our first appointment is at 8:15am each day, Monday to Friday. We also offer late appointments, with the last check-up at 6:15pm Monday to Thursday. Unlike many practices in the area, we are always open on Friday afternoons until 4.45pm.
Both the St John’s Road and East Craigs Dental Practices are open. Due to Covid 19, however, the Scottish Government has imposed extremely strict limitations both on the way all dental practices can operate due to social distancing requirements and on the type of treatment all NHS dentists can carry out.
If patients need advice or treatment in an emergency, they should phone the Practices on the usual numbers and we will help you.
The Scottish Government restrictions mean that although a very limited category of routine treatment is available, the vast majority of treatment options are not yet able to be provided on the NHS. In addition, due to the strict distancing requirements, we are only allowed to operate at a fraction of our normal capacity to ensure the safety of our patients and team members.
Unfortunately, these Government restrictions mean that the majority of treatment that was in progress when we were told to close in March is not yet possible. We realise this is terribly frustrating for our patients and we are also desperate to get back to working normally.
We will contact those patients awaiting treatment once it is able to be carried out. If anyone has any concerns about this, please phone our reception team and ask if the Practice Manager could call you back.
We have huge sympathy for those patients who have been impacted by our enforced closure and the subsequent Government restrictions on dentists in Scotland. We are very keen to return to working normally as soon as we are permitted & we thank all our patients for your support and understanding throughout this challenging time for everyone.
