Children's Dentistry

We provide Biannual checkups for your children, which are so important to prevent tooth decay and avoid dental treatment.


In the Practice, we are required to comply with the instructions of the British Dental Association and the Chief Dental Officer (Scotland), changing frequently, but now we have to cease all routine treatments and if necessary, any operative emergency treatment has to be referred to Specialist Centres. As soon as we return to normal life, we will endeavour to complete all dental treatment planned, as soon as possible, offering extended hours, in order to bring our care of you, up to date.

If you have dental pain or any worry, please telephone us on (0131) 664 4768, so that we can discuss your situation. If you wish, we can easily set up a video call: Facetime, Skype, Messenger, WhatsApp. Together we can decide what is best for you.
