The Dental Practice in Edinburgh – Christopher Sale
The Dental practice in Edinburgh was originally established in the mid 1980’s and has been featured in an issue of Harpers and Queen. The current owner, Christopher Sale, took over in 2010.
We strive for excellence in all aspects of care. The practice is set within a beautiful Georgian flat in the heart of Edinburgh. You will be personally welcomed at the door and seated within our charming waiting room, where if there is time, tea or coffee is available. Our team will keep you updated every step of the way.
Our ethos at Christopher Sale Dentistry is that teeth should be saved and that we focus our treatments around prevention.
About Christopher Sale -Your Dentist
Christopher comes from an art background and draws on these skills when applying his dentistry. He has two qualifications, his primary degree from Bristol University and a *Prosthodontic degree from Edinburgh University.
A degree in *Prosthodontics provides a deeper understanding of materials and their application in aesthetics and the dynamic functionality of the mouth. By understanding these basic building blocks it helps to improve predictability and outcomes of treatments, thereby optimising success. We are also able to save teeth, where others deem them useless.
Christopher obtained his primary dental degree from Bristol University in 1995. In 2002, he entered a 3 year advanced training program at Edinburgh University, gaining his Master of Clinical Dentistry Degree in 2005, passing with distinction.
Since then further postgraduate studies include gaining:
- Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (Fellowship exams)
- Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons of England (Joint Faculties exams)
- Certification in Invisalign Orthodontics
Chris has worked in both corporate and family practice settings. After obtaining his degree, he held a teaching and tutoring position at Edinburgh’s’ Post-graduate Institute, where he was involved in the specialist training pathway. For the corporate body he held an senior position, involved in guidance, treatment planning and accepted referrals in all aspects of dentistry from a pool of 16 dentists based in Edinburgh (4 practices), Glasgow, Inverness and Aberdeen.
Prior to coming to 47 Dublin Street, Chris also held a Lecturing and Tutoring position with a leading Implant company.
