Specialised Dental Services

Specialised Dental Services

 

Our Specialised Dental Service provide a range of services within a defined criteria for patients.

 

Our Dentists and Dental Nurses work from four fully Disability Discrimination Act compliant clinics and are highly experienced at treating patients with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, mental health problems, dental phobias and anxieties.

 

We provide specialised services such as sedation, general anaesthetic (GA).

Domiciliary assessments and advice are also available for patients referred by their regular dentist or other agencies. Follow up treatment will be carried out in a dental clinic where specialist equipment is available.

We get involved in dental screening work at schools for children with learning disabilities as well as at establishments for adults with learning disabilities.

 

We monitor the trends in dental health and oral health inequalities through a yearly epidemiological survey. 

Access

 

Referrals are accepted by phone, in person or in writing from the following:

  • Primary Dental Care Practitioners
  • Hospital Dental Practitioners
  • General Medical Practitioners
  • Other Healthcare workers
  • Social Services
  • Voluntary agencies
  • Nursing and residential homes

 

Most patients are referred via their carer, parent or guardian. At the end of a course of treatment, if it is felt you no longer require specialised care then you will be referred on to a General Dental Practitioner (GDP) colleague for ongoing regular care.

Alternatively, if you require continuing regular care, then you will be recalled appropriately and in line with National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidance.

Provision for cancer patients with head and neck cancer is available on referral. We provide a treatment service for patients at Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology.
