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.

Additional Support:

A city-wide specialist referral service for children and adults with additional needs, as well as priority groups and the most vulnerable people in the community. Clinical teaching for students from Manchester University School of Dentistry is undertaken, which helps to improve access to dental care for 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.
