June: Free dental care | News and Features


Do your teeth need routine dental treatment? Student dentists, therapists and hygienists from Bristol University’s School of Oral Science offer dental care to members of the public who do not have a dentist.

The free servicewhich can include fillings, oral hygiene advice, scaling and polishing, crowns, bridges or dentures, is delivered by one of the best dental schools in the UK.

All student treatments are closely supervised by qualified clinical staff. The service operates most days of the week, but to attend appointments members of the public must be flexible with their schedules and available most days.

James Tubman, Principal of the dental school, said: “We are really delighted to be able to offer this opportunity to people in the Bristol area. Patients would be expected to attend a brief dental examination to enable us to assess their suitability for the treatment of students. If patients are accepted, they will be discharged at the end of a treatment as we are unfortunately unable to provide ongoing dental care.

Members of the public wishing to apply for student treatment can download a restorer patient self-referral form or collect a form from Bristol Dental Hospital Main Reception. Completed forms should be delivered to Reception or posted/emailed to: Student Co-ordinator, Bristol Dental Hospital, Lower Maudlin Street, Bristol BS1 2LY or email [email protected] uk
