Specialist Dental

If your child has tooth pain and you do not have a regular dentist in the area or are not under a current course of dental treatment, then our specialist children’s dental team could help.

Our dentists, therapists, dental hygienists and dental nurses offer a range of specialist dental services in the southwest for children and adults. We provide comprehensive dental care for those with special needs and our Dental Access Centre is accessible to wheelchair users. Services include minor oral surgery, support for people with dental phobias, paediatric dental extractions and special care for people who undergo general anaesthetic.

Livewell Southwest welcomes referrals from dentists, GPs and other healthcare professionals. Children can self-refer, or parents/guardians may refer children to our service.

To find out if you qualify to use our service, or to make an appointment, contact us using the information below. We’re afraid that all appointments must be booked in advance and that we do not offer a walk-in service. On arrival at reception you will be asked to fill in a medical history form and the relevant NHS paperwork.  If you are taking medication it would be helpful if you bring a list with you.
