Claire Sunrise Dental Clinic Orthodontic & Paediatric Dentistry in Edinburgh, UK

Dr Claire qualified from the University of Glasgow Dental School in 2017 and has since worked in hospitals, general dental practice and the public dental service. She has completed three years of training within the hospital environment and most recently worked within the national Cleft Lip & Palate Surgery service for Scotland.

Dr Claire is passionate about giving children positive memories of dental visits, setting them up for becoming healthy and happy adults, confident in any medical or dental setting. This is achieved through fun and including the child in the decision making process. She believes in involving and educating the whole family, helping to provide great foundations for care.

Her interest in paediatrics was sparked as an undergraduate dental student after completing an extra module in paediatrics. From there, she has further training in treating children with additional needs and anxieties. She has many interests, including science and art, even winning an award for completing a Space Dentistry project in Texas!

Outside of the clinic, Dr Claire loves spending time with her two nieces and nephew, teaching them all about oral health! Health and fitness are a priority for Dr Claire, enjoying hiking, yoga and racquet sports at the weekends. She has tried most sports and is always looking for more challenges! She creates art, videos and music in her spare time which you can see for yourself on her TikTok and Instagram accounts @drclairedentist.

Dr Claire welcomes all patients and families and is looking forward to working with you!
