Private Dentist in Edinburgh

City Health Clinic is a dental clinic located in Edinburgh's city centre. We provide high quality and award-winning private dental service as well as cosmetic dental treatments. We have a convenient city centre location (at the south end of Lothian Road) which is easily accessible for those working and living locally. Many of Edinburgh city’s bus routes pass our doors.

We are known for our friendly, modern and professional approach. We offer cutting-edge techniques in preventative care for our private dentist patients combined with full options for cosmetic treatments.

 

Many of our patients give feedback via Facebook reviews and Google reviews. One recurring theme is that our dentists work exceptionally hard at helping nervous patients and those with dental fear. This is something we as a dental clinic in Edinburgh are very proud of! 

 

We are an award-winning practice with one of our dentists winning “Dentist of the Year” in the 2017 Scottish Dental Awards. In addition, our team have previously been shortlisted for “Team of the Year” and we have had two further short listings for “Dentist of the Year”.

 

If you are looking for an emergency dentist in Edinburgh we may be able to help.  These emergency appointments are subject to availability – they are sometimes in great demand and get booked quickly.

 

Currently, we are able to accept new private dentist patients to our city centre Edinburgh practice. We also offer free consultations for our cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening and for adult orthodontic treatments such as teeth straightening.

Please note that online booking is available for both NHS and private dental patient consultations (check-ups) - if you are an existing patient, you must select your existing dentist. Online booking can also be used for some private treatments and consultations including new patient emergency dental appointments, free teeth whitening consultations, free teeth straightening consultations and free facial aesthetic consultations. For existing patients looking for an emergency appointment, please call us as we keep appointments aside for this purpose. Online booking is provided on a secure, third-party booking platform which is integrated with our appointment diaries.
