Community Dental Service | NELFT
Our community dental service sees patients who have special needs which are not provided for by the general dental service (dentists who provide NHS or private dental services from high street practices) or by the hospital dental service. We also deliver a general anaesthetic service for children at Basildon Hospital.
We offer oral health advice to young mothers, and to people with learning disabilities and their carers. If a patient is housebound, we can visit them and advise them on where their treatment can best be provided. Dental treatment is free for children but adults will have to pay NHS charges, unless they are exempt. Patients are referred to us by other health professionals.
