Dental Services for Special Needs


We provide special care dental treatment for people who live in Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham, Croydon, Richmond, Kingston, Merton, Sutton and Wandsworth. We see them at 20 community-based health centres and sites in South London, including our Mobile Dental Unit. For residents of Southwark and Lambeth, our health centre is located at West Norwood Leisure Centre, 25 Devane Way, West Norwood, London SE27 0DF.

Our service provides a full range of dental treatment and oral healthcare for patients for whom treatment by a general dental practice is unsuitable. This includes people who have a:

  • physical disability
  • complex medical condition
  • learning disability
  • severe mental health condition
  • severe anxiety/phobia.

We also provide a service for plus-size (bariatric) patients and those who need a home visit or who are homeless.


What to expect at your first appointment

Your appointment letter will tell you where to go for your first appointment. At this appointment, we will assess you and you may have x-rays. We will discuss the results with you and decide what treatment you need. You may need to come to another appointment for treatment.


Preparing for your appointment

Please bring the following to your first appointment, where we will assess what you need:

Your appointment letter.
A list of any medicines you are taking.
The details of any doctors or other healthcare professionals caring for you.
Cash, cheque book or payment card to pay for treatment; exemption certificate or proof of exemption if you are eligible for free NHS dental treatment.
A list of questions you want to ask.
