Edinburgh Dental Specialists originally opened in 1994 as a private dental practice, suitably named West End Private Dental Practice. We are situated at the West End of Rose Street, in a prime city centre location, in the heart of historic Edinburgh.
The innovative concept of this brand new, custom-built practice in 1994, was to offer an exceptionally high standard of private dentistry. Over the years, the reputation of the practice and the skills of the internationally renowned dentists have created exciting opportunities for expansion.
The practice became limited to the provision of cosmetic, implant and restorative dentistry in 1997, with the second surgery being equipped as a surgical suite for the placement of dental implants. In 1998, we were runners up, and received a commendation, in the Scottish Business and Excellence awards. In 2002 we committed fully to our goal of becoming Scotland’s first multi-disciplinary specialist centre and limited ourselves to only treating patients referred to the practice by local practitioners. We have since evolved into a large multi-floored premises encompassing our original location. Our first floor accommodates 5 clinical suites, a digital radiography and dental CT scanning facility, consulting rooms and our spacious, welcoming lounge area.
Our second level comprises of our conference and teaching centre. This facility allows us to share our expertise with colleagues in the dental profession and is an ideal, central location from which we have been running many and varied training courses for dentists and dental nurses over the last 10 years. The third level houses our unique dental laboratory, where our team of dental technologists hand craft crowns, veneers, dentures, bridges and implant-supported restorations.
2011 saw us adding a fourth level consisting of an additional 3 surgeries, consultation room, sterilisation room and additional waiting area. This ensures that we can continue to meet the needs of our referring dentists and their patients with regards to short waiting times for appointments and continuing levels of service.
All our specialists and support staff care passionately about providing the very best service for patients referred to them. Our underlying principle is to treat people, as we would like to be treated ourselves and, where possible, to go the extra mile.
All of our staff are here to help you, whatever your problem or concern. Our specialists all carry mobile phones for out-of-hours emergency advice. Our lounge and clinical areas are constantly being upgraded and improved. Weekly team meetings allow us to continually improve the way in which we deliver our care to you. We welcome and encourage your comments in order to keep improving.
