This is a specialised service to meet additional needs that cannot be met by a family dentist. The service is for children aged 15 and under with a severe disability, medical or mental health condition.
We accept referrals from dentists and other health care professionals for children with:
- special needs
- behavioural problems
- complex medical problems
- dental anxiety
- extractions with sedation or general anaesthesia
- Children in care and vulnerable children
The first appointment is for assessment only and can usually be undertaken local to the child’s home. Some specialist services, however, are only provided in certain clinics.
