Services we provide

Within the Birmingham Children’s Hospital, the dental team provides the following services:

  • Dental treatment
  • Inhalation sedation (RA sedation)
  • General anaesthetic
  • Multi-disciplinary clinics such as oral medicine clinics and joint dental/orthodontic/periodontology clinics

Following a referral to the department

Following a referral from a Health Care Professional, you will be given an appointment for a New Patient Assessment. At this visit you will meet with our team, who will then carry out an assessment and formulate a treatment plan.

Within your assessment appointment, it may be necessary to take some radiographs (x-rays) to assist us in assessing what treatment needs carrying out. This may be done either in the department or within the Radiology department, which is a short walk from the Dental Department.
