Senior dental officer Gill Palmer, said: “The mobile unit is a fully equipped dental surgery which we can take out into the community.

“The mobile clinic will initially be located at Northgate Hospital for two days each week, reducing travelling time for our patients to access our dental services.

“We also plan to use the mobile clinic to take services to our patients who are resident in local care facilities and are unable to travel.”

The community dental team treat a range of special care patients who are unable to be treated in general dental practices. Health professionals who wish to refer a patient for assessment by the Community Dental Service can direct referrals to their nearest clinic.
