Specialist services

Edinburgh Dental Specialists was established in 1994 by Kevin Lochhead. His aim was to create a multi-disciplinary referral only practice and over the years he has built up an outstanding team of clinicians from around the world.

All of our internationally renowned clinicians have been granted permission by the GDC or GMC, or have a specialist application pending, to officially use the title 'specialist'.

Our main priority at Edinburgh Dental Specialists is the care, comfort and quality of service we provide to our referring practitioners' patients.

When a patient completes their treatment with us they are always returned to the continuing care of their own GDP.
