Who we are?

Hello and Welcome to Musselburgh Dental Care. We are an extremely committed practice, who have provided affordable NHS services as well as private treatment throughout East Lothian for over 60 years.

The practice was started by Mr Robertson in the 1960’s in the parsonage nearby. He kept goats and chickens in his front garden and gave goats milk to the lactose intolerant patients.

Mr John Carr then moved the practice to its current location in the high street in the early 1970’s. He then retired and passed the ownership to Mr Iain Chamberlain in the late 1970’s. Iain then took on Mr sim as an associate in 1980, and entered a partnership soon after. Mr Chamberlain then left and Mr Sim became the sole owner of the practice. In November 2017 he entered a partnership with Martin Chan.

I was so happy to have found Dr Martin Chan. He really puts me at ease as I’ve always been afraid of the dentist. Very professional. Can’t recommend enough. Karina Cheung

Been with this dental practice for a long number of years now. The help and attention that my family and I have been given over this time have been nothing but professional. I have since referred friends to this practice. Ryan Chow.

Can’t recommend Martin and Caroline enough such a nervous patient, always put me at ease, lovely staff and dentist would totally recommend to anyone x  Megan Murdock

The dentist here are so attentive and polite. Every time my two daughters come here to check their teeth and extract teeth, the dentist will also explain the situation very carefully, so I can rest assured! Thank you dentist and staff. Sandy Chu.

Excellent dental practice! My family and I have been going there for many years now. Martin and the team are always warm and friendly. I find this very important as most people are nervous as it is going to the dentist. Every visit, whether it’s a check up or receiving treatment is approached with the same first class attitude.
In these challenging times of covid the practice deals with it with the upmost professionalism, can’t fault them. Bobby Cheung

Just had root canal treatment carried out by Martin Chan. Have had dental treatment treatment carried out at other practices throughout the years, however, if there is a better dentist than Martin Chan out there they must be very special. Martin Chan is by far the best dentist I have ever had treatment from.   Davy Meikle

As a nervous patient I’ve found Musselburgh dental care the best in Edinburgh by long long way.    Simon Hill

Have always been a nervous kind of person when it comes to dental appointments, until I changed my dentist 10 years ago to this practice and have never looked back. Dr Chan ( he insist l call him Martin) would always put me at ease by reassuring me with his calm and polite manner. He would talk me through the process before he starts treatment – making sure I know exactly what to expect. Very professional. I have recommended my friends to the practice and they have said the same. Highly recommended. Karin Dixon

Can’t thank Musselburgh Dental Care enough; my appointment(s) went smoothly and I can’t thank Joanna and Esther enough for probably the best dental experience I’ve had in many years. All staff have been amazing, friendly and approachable, and really helpful. Thank you all so much! Hadassah Guy

Would like to say ” Thank You “, to Dr Martin Chan. After much neglect I had to have most of my teeth removed and dentures fitted. He made the procedures as pleasant as possible. Very relaxed , chatty , and a really nice guy. Have to say the ladies attending were brilliant as well. Highly recommend.  David Baxter.
