Christmas & New Year
The practice will be closed over Christmas and New Year, we will be closed from Friday the 23rd of December & reopen on Wednesday the 4th of January.
Hopefully all will be well and you will be able to happily enjoy your Christmas Pudding…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 can wait for the practice to be open again or if you need to see a dentist urgently. If you do need emergency treatment during this time, and are registered with us just ring the practice and you can listen to a recorded message giving instructions on how to access our emergency care.
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 no call out fee.
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 the holidays for our NHS patients using this service. There is no call out fee.
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 have Denplan membership, to take your details away with you. Your Denplan membership includes worldwide emergency care.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all the team at Lauriston Dental Care in Edinburgh.0
