The Community Dental Service is providing dental care, but a range of safety measures have been put in place to protect both patients and staff. We are seeing fewer patients so we can keep our dental departments COVID safe. This means if you are currently receiving treatment we will contact you directly about your appointment(s) and if you are on our waiting list for dental treatment, unfortunately you may have to wait longer to receive an appointment.
If you are in pain and are currently a patient of the Community Dental Service, please contact us on 01274 259253 between 9am and 4.30pm; we are open Monday to Friday.
As we only work with people who are unable to access regular dental treatment due to their additional needs, if you have a regular dentist, please contact them for help and support or, if you do not have a dentist but you are experiencing severe pain, please contact NHS 111.
We offer a high-quality service for people who are unable to access dental treatment by a ‘high street’ NHS dentist due to their additional needs. Our staff have expertise in the care, management and understanding of people with learning disabilities, challenging medical conditions and people who are housebound.
We provide general dental treatment such as fillings, x-rays, cleaning and extractions. For those patients with additional needs, if required, we can also offer treatment with sedation or in hospital under general anaesthetic. In addition to our clinics within the community we also have a mobile dental unit and can support people in their homes, if they are housebound.
We have specialist equipment such as adapted dental chairs, hoists and transfer aids to support people who have mobility issues.
If you think you might need support from our community dental care team you can ask your dentist, doctor or other healthcare professional to refer you.
