Disability friendly dentist information

We were asked if we could identify any Disability Friendly Dentists and this is what we found.

In response to your request for a Disability Friendly Dentist, there is a Community-based dental service based in Brace Street, Walsall.

 

Patients with more complex needs:

Park View Centre, Brownhills, Chester Road North, Brownhills, WS8 7JB.

If you need to make contact regarding an appointment that you have booked at the above clinic, please contact our Central Booking Team on 0121 466 7610.

Patients will need to be referred to the service by a Health Care Professional. The referral form is on the Community-based dental service website:  www.bhamcommunity.nhs.uk/scd

It is a consultant-led service providing specialist care on referral for adults aged 16 and over who fit their referral criteria.

To fit the criteria, the patient must have a severe disability, medical or mental health condition which results in:

  • severe difficulty communicating, giving consent and/or co-operating with treatment
  • complex medical condition with significant risk of medical emergency, bleeding or healing problems
  • inability to weight bear and transfer into the dental chair without use of special equipment
  • severe and enduring mental health problems with unusual altered thought, extreme mood and behaviour which restricts the provision of care.

For referrals and more information the address is: Special Care Dental Referrals, Central Booking Office, Ground Floor, Birmingham Dental Hospital, 5 Mill Pool Way, Birmingham, B5 7EG.
