Dental Service (Community)
The Manchester Community Dental Service is aimed at people who
are unable to access care in the General Dental Services due to
their additional needs. In particular, the Service caters for
patients with challenging medical conditions, learning
difficulties, mental and physical disability, special dental
conditions and social and behavioural limitations. In addition, it
provides sedation services for anxious children, domiciliary care
and dental care for bariatric patients.
Access to the service is on a referral basis.
Referrals meeting our service criteria are accepted from
Dentists, GPs, health care, and social care professionals.
