For Dentists

BSPD for the dental profession

Paediatric specialists and consultants aim to work closely with referring dental practices which refer young patients for a second opinion. We want to ensure that care pathways work smoothly and are designed in the interests of children and young people. Many patients will experience shared care, with specialist treatment completed in a hospital or clinic setting to complement routine and preventative care provided by the family dentist.
