Salaried Primary Care Dental Service

The Salaried Primary Care Dental Service is a specialised service that provides dental treatment for children, adults and older people who, because of additional needs such as learning disabilities, physical disabilities or vulnerability, are unable to access general dental care.

Salaried Primary Care Dental Service

Our staff members have expertise in the care, management and understanding of people with special needs. We offer treatment for both adults and children with:

  • A learning disability warranting specialised care
  • A physical disability
  • Severe or complex medical problems
  • Social, emotional, and/or behavioural problems
  • Socially disadvantaged vulnerable groups
  • Have neurodisability
  • Are very young (pre cooperative)
  • Anxious or dentally phobic
  • Complex oral pathology

For urgent dental needs outside normal office hours please telephone 111.
