LIDP is a locally run organisation that allows you to enjoy the benefits of private dental care for a fixed monthly fee. As we do not have to support a national brand name our administration costs are very low. These savings are passed on to you as a member patient to keep your monthly fees to a minimum. Member dentists volunteer their time to run LIDP and any profits are used for team education and training in our member practices.
Established more than 20 years ago by a small group of local dentists, LIDP has expanded steadily, and now boasts more than 70 member dentists in the Lothian area caring for thousands of patients. LIDP practices offer full care or maintenance only membership plans, to allow you to choose the category of membership that suits your needs best. If you are unsure as to which option is best your dentist will be able to advise you.
LIDP was founded on the principles of preventive dentistry, which means that your dentists main goal is to keep you dentally healthy and avoid the problems caused by tooth decay and gum disease. LIDP helps its member dentists and their teams stay up to date by organising training courses and supporting clinical audit.
All members of LIDP benefit from access to our local out of hours emergency service. So as a member of LIDP you will know that should you have an urgent problem outside practice hours help is only a phone call away.
