Christmas & New Year 2017
The practice will be closed over Christmas and New Year, we will be closed from Friday 22nd December at 12 noon and re-open on Wednesday 3rd January 2018.
Hopefully all will be well and you will be able to happily enjoy the Christmas period, however, what do you do if you have a dental problem and Lauriston Dental Care is closed?
When the practice is closed you will need to decide if you need to see a dentist urgently or if you can wait until we reopen in January 2018.
If you do need emergency treatment during this time, and are registered with us, just ring the practice and you can listen to a message giving instructions on how to access our emergency care. Call 0131 229 3039 and please listen to the whole message.
No routine appointments will be available during the holidays.
We run our On Call service with several other practices over Edinburgh, you may be seen at another practice if it is not Shane, Louise or Umara who is on call that day.
Denplan patients are covered by their Denplan care contract for emergencies when we are closed.
There is a call out fee & charge for any treatment provided for private patients to be seen by the on call dentist.
Usual NHS fees will stand during this time for our NHS patients using this service. There is no call out fee. NHS patients are seen at Chalmers Dental Centre on the Public Holidays & weekends.
The on call dentist is also available for telephone advice during this time. If you think you have a dental issue which may not be classed as urgent please contact them for advice.
We hope this information is of help and do remember if you are travelling in the UK or abroad and are a Denplan patient, your Denplan membership includes worldwide emergency care.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all the team at Lauriston Dental Care.
