Service information

Our service offers high quality preventive dental care and treatment to patients in Surrey.

Please note, our services are run from a number of clinics that are listed to the right. You will be notified in advance where your appointment will take place.

This is a specialist referral service for children and adults who due to a variety of  special needs have been unable to have those needs met in a General Dental Practice.

We offer a comprehensive list of treatments to ensure dental health including:

  • Oral hygiene and dietary advice, scaling and polishing
  • Examination, fillings, extractions, fissure sealants, root canal treatment, dentures, crowns and bridges
  • Relative Analgesia sedation
  • Provision of dental extractions under general anaesthetic (treatment carried out at  various Hospitals across Surrey)
  • Should we not be able to meet your needs we will refer you to the service you require
  • Domiciliary visits for patients who have been certified as house bound by their General Medical Practitioner (GMP)

Appointments

Once your referral has been accepted, you will receive a letter to confirm your first appointment. Appointments can be made by either visiting the centre or telephoning during opening hours.

During your first appointment the Dentist will conduct a full dental examination. This will include:

  • Dental charting
  • Discussion between the Dentist and patient to formulate a treatment plan and options
  • Oral hygiene preventative advice
  • Possible dental X-rays;
  • Possible referral  to see a Dental Therapist for diet advice and treatment on prescription from the Dentist

Each appointment is dependent on your needs so appointment times will vary. However, first appointments normally take about 30 minutes to allow for examination, treatment planning, X-rays and discussion and advice.

Dental charges

Patients who are referred into the service and are not exempt from NHS charges will be required to pay for any treatment carried out. Up to date NHS dental charges are on display in the waiting area.  If you think you are exempt from NHS dental charges please bring evidence of your exemption with you to your appointment or you will be asked to pay for your treatment.
