Introduction to Dental Services


Welcome to the Oxfordshire Community Dental
Service. Our dedicated staff work in 10 clinics throughout
Oxfordshire and we’d like to ensure you get the care you need. We’d like your visit to the dental service
to be as comfortable as possible, and we are here to help you with any extra support that
you may need. My name is Dhruvi and I am one of the dentists
with in the community dental service. Our team is here to help support you with
any extra needs you might have. This could be learning disabilities, physical
needs, dental anxiety and complex medical conditions that might make receiving dental
care challenging for you. Once you’ve been referred to our service by
your dentist, doctor or other health care professional, an appointment will be scheduled
for you at the clinic closest to where you live.
When you arrive at the clinic for your appointment you will be greeted by the receptionist who
will talk you through the paperwork that will need to be completed. Hi there! Good morning. I’ve got an appointment this
morning. Ok. Thank you very much. The dentist you are seeing today is Juvie? so if you can possibly take a seat and fill in those forms and the dental
nurse will come to you shortly. Ok. Thank you. A member of staff will greet you and collect
you from the waiting room and take you to one of our modern, well-equipped surgeries. Hi Emily, my name is Aisha. I’m just going to take you to see Dhruvi today, ok? We’re just
in surgery one there. If you should need them, we have the availability
of a hoist, specialist in all surgery, endodontics and special care and paediatrics. If you are anxious or worried about having
treatment in the dental clinic, we can provide a number of services to help you including
sedation, acupuncture and cognitive behaviour therapy. You dentist will be able to discuss these options with you. We also have staff who are trained to provide
treatment under general anaesthetic. For those that are unable to travel to the
dental clinic, our mobile dentistry team are able to visit you at home and provide dental
care for you there. We appreciate feedback from the individuals
we see and strive to make changes to the services from that feedback. Out team will do all that we can to help you
relax and to work with you to ensure your treatment is the highest quality and is provided
with the most appropriate support.
