What our Edinburgh Dentists Believe

Our Edinburgh Dentists look forward to welcoming you to Craigentinny Dental Care. With years of experience between them our team are able to provide comprehensive wrap around dental care.What does this mean for your family? In short it means that almost all of your dental needs can be taken care of in one place.Our practice opened in Edinburgh in 1989 and Dentists John Booth and Fraser Hendrie started working together some 6 years later. Since then our practice has grown in size and even relocated but our original goals remain the same.

  • Great quality, pain free dentistry is every patients right.
  •  It is our job to tailor what we do to your dental needs, wishes, and aspirations rather than your job to fit in with ours.
  •  Wherever possible you should see one dentist and if needed one dental hygienist for all of your routine care
  • This is so that we can get to know you well, and really understand deeply what is happening with your dental health.
  •  We believe in open, honest communication.
  • As a member of our practice you are welcome to call or e-mail your dentist direct with any questions that you may have between visits.

If you have a dental problem and are not sure if we are the right practice for you then why not take advantage of a  free no obligation  20 minute consultation.
