Who we treat
We offer oral health care for people who would struggle to access treatment from general dental services. This includes children with high levels of dental problems, and people with special needs such as physical disabilities, learning difficulties or mental health problems. Wheelchair users and bariatric patients can also be accommodated and we have the facilities to offer conscious sedation and general anaesthetic.
Staff can, where necessary, undertake home visits for those who are unable to attend a hospital or community dental appointment.
Where possible people should be treated within general dental services, our staff treat those who need more specialist care.
As well as providing a service for patients who have difficulty accessing treatment elsewhere, we also have a responsibility to monitor and improve the dental health of the local population.
We take referrals from other dentists, doctors, nurses, social workers and other health professionals.
