Buckinghamshire Priority Dental Service

Coronavirus status: OPEN

Buckinghamshire Priority Dental Service offers special care dentistry for people in Milton Keynes and the Hertfordshire and South Midlands and Thames Valley catchment areas who are unable to access a general dental practitioner and need specialist dental treatment.

The Service is for:

  • Adults and children with learning disabilities
  • Adults and children with complex medical problems
  • Adults and children with severe mental health problems
  • Children with severe behavioural management problems
  • Adults with very severe anxiety and dental phobias

Buckinghamshire Priority Dental Service (BPDS) clinics are accessible to disabled patients. However, patients needing a ground floor surgery should first try to obtain care with a general dental practitioner (GDP) and only be referred to BPDS if there is no ground floor access within a reasonable distance. Some clinics also have hoists for those who need help transferring to the dental chair.
