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 competitive. These savings are passed on to you to keep your monthly fees to a minimum. Dentists volunteer their time to run LIDP and any profits are used for team education and training in our practices.
Established more than 20 years ago by a small group of local dentists, LIDP has expanded steadily, and now boasts more than 90 dentists in the Lothian area caring for thousands of patients. LIDP practices offer a range of membership plans, to allow you to choose the category of membership that suits your needs. Your dentist will be able to advise you with your options to suits your dental needs.
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 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 (DEAS). 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.
