Surgical Dentistry

Key Contacts

Who are we?

A group of clinicians involved in provision of Surgical Dentistry in Grampian with representation from Primary Care , OMFS and Aberdeen Dental School in collaboration with Dental Public Health and Referral Management.

What do we do?

Provide Surgical Dentistry Services to patients of NHS Grampian to support patients and dentists and avoid unnecessary OMFS referrals.

The group was reconvened to review and reevaluate the current service model and assess the current demand; refine the pathway with the inclusion of Aberdeen Dental School as a service provider.

Priorities

  • Ensure a safe, sustainable, suitably resourced service model in order to deliver effective timely care for patients.
  • Support Aberdeen Dental School in training the next generation of dentists.
  • Work with Referral Management in order to maximise administrative efficiency.
