NHS Dentistry

Referral to a health centre or clinic

 

If your disability or medical condition makes you need extra time, care or special facilities to receive proper dental treatment, a health centre or clinic can provide this.  Some hospitals or health centres offer specialist treatment, which may involve sedation or general anaesthetic.  This may be most suitable for disabled children, someone who has a severe learning disability or is, due to their particular impairment, unable to remain still during the treatment period.

 

Your dentist or doctor can refer you to the service best suited to your needs.

 

Home visits

 

If you are unable to visit a dentist, it may be possible to arrange a home visit but treatment options outside the surgery are limited. The time of day when the dentist can visit may also be limited due to normal surgery hours.  It is important to make clear, before making such an appointment, that you require NHS treatment

 

Your Rights

 

Under the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) you have a right of access to dental surgeries, and dentists should make 'reasonable adjustments' to their premises and to accommodate any disability needs you may have. However, a small dental surgery may not be able to make all adjustments needed for all disabilities.  On the other hand, a hospital  would be able to accommodate a much wider range of adjustments.
