Welcome to St John’s Road & East Craigs Dental Practices

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.

I am a very stressed patient and I am scared of going to the dentist, I feel very well looked after in this practice, I know I am going to be treated well and everyone is very professional. I am so happy Louise is my dentist.

I am a patient at St Johns Road and have been for many years. I would never go anywhere else even though I have moved to a different area. All the staff are lovely genuine and professional Ruth Campbell is an absolute gem puts you at ease and if you suffer from dental phobia I can highly recommend. Once you are a patient here you will never look elsewhere.

The Practices will be re-opening on Monday 22nd June.

While this is a great first step, unfortunately the Scottish Government has imposed extremely strict limitations both on the types of treatment dentists can carry out and the way dental practices are allowed to operate on re-opening.
From 22nd June, the Scottish Government has said that NHS dental practices are only permitted to see an extremely limited category of patients in an emergency.  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 unfortunately no routine treatment is permitted and similarly we are not yet allowed to re-commence treatment that was in progress when we were told to close in March - we also do not yet have a date when this treatment will be allowed.  We realise this is terribly frustrating for our patients and we are also desperate to get back to working normally.

All patients who had appointments that were missed during the 12 weeks when we were told to stay closed and those due to have upcoming appointments within the next few weeks will either have had a call or will be receiving a call from our Receptionists over the coming weeks to explain the situation.  Unfortunately, until the Scottish Government lift current restrictions, treatment cannot be rebooked as we do not know the date when the various treatments will be permitted.  Due to the 2 metre physical distancing requirements, we are only able to have a very small team of receptionists working at the same time and we have thousands of patients to phone so please bear with us and we will be in touch as soon as possible.

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.
