We provide a specialised dental service for adults and children with complex needs who find it difficult to use general dental services. We deal with public health issues such as epidemiological surveys, the identification of oral health inequalities in the local population and the provision of oral health promotion activities. Eligible patients are:
- NHS treatment for people with mental and or physical health problems.
- NHS treatment for individuals with special needs such as wheelchair users, bariatric patients, housebound people.
- NHS treatment for groups of people with special needs such as special schools and people with learning disabilities.
People are usually referred to the Special Care Dental Service from other services but please contact us for advice.
