Caroline Grant Ed

Caroline Grant


Caroline graduated from The University of Manchester and after practicing dentistry for several years in England, she returned home to Scotland where she has focused on widening her skill-set.

Caroline has developed a special interest in Orthodontics leading to a postgraduate diploma in this field; she provides both fixed comprehensive orthodontic treatments and removable clear aligners. Many patients choose cosmetic options such as tooth-coloured brackets including the Damon system and lingual [invisible] braces where the brackets are attached behind the teeth. Caroline understands that patients can be conscious of the way their teeth look and has spent recent years focusing on treatments that will make the best of your smile.

Caroline is also certified to carry out facial aesthetic treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. These are great treatments for patients looking to improve their appearance and many patients choose to have facial aesthetic treatments after a course of dental treatment to enhance their look even further.

A further postgraduate skill Caroline has focused on is the management of difficult dental extractions such as the surgical removal of wisdom teeth.

For all those anxious patients out there, please be reassured that Caroline has focused on anxiety management and sedation for anxious patients. Caroline likes to put patients at ease.

Caroline is an experienced clinician and is always keen to listen to what patients want in order to make a treatment plan that will give patients a beautiful smile that they can show off with pride.

When not practising dentistry, Caroline likes to spend time with her family and has recently taken up painting.

Associate Dentist

GDC No. 130925

Manuela graduated in 1996 in Italy discussing a dissertation written in collaboration with the Eastman Dental School in London.

She opened her own private practice and ran her business for 13 years before moving to Scotland after replying to an advert about a private practice in the Scottish Highlands.

Having always been fond of Scotland and its landscapes, Manuela fell in love with Edinburgh during a holiday and decided to relocate permanently to the capital city where she worked for the past 11 years, mainly in private practice.

Manuela attended many hands-on courses both in restorative dentistry and prosthodontics, in the UK and abroad, developing a passion for minimally invasive dentistry in all its aspects with the aim of saving natural teeth for as long as possible with minimal and unnoticeable intervention.

She firmly believes that everyone should be proud of their smile which in turn projects and promotes confidence
