Appointments with students are available on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Clinics run term time only. Each appointment will take between 1.5 - 2.5 hours.
- Treatment may take a long time to complete, you may see more than one trainee during the course of your treatment.
- Under no circumstances will you be transferred to the care of our specialist level dentists in the hospital.
- Your treatment will be provided for free, but the cost is in your time and commitment.
Your first appointment
Your first appointment will involve a detailed check-up of your teeth and mouth to let you know what dental treatment you need and to make sure that the work you need is manageable by a student. We will then let you know whether we will be able to take you on for treatment, and what the approximate waiting time will be until treatment can start. If for any reason we are unable to offer you treatment, we will discuss this with you and advise you appropriately.
Changing your appointment
To change or reschedule your appointment, please contact the reception at your outreach site on the numbers above. Alternatively, you can email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Due to the high volume of patients requesting this service and in line with Trust guidelines, you will be discharged if you fail to attend one appointment without notifying us of your intention not to attend or make two cancellations within 72 hours of your appointment.
Patients who are late for their appointment on more than two occasions will be discharged from our care.

Dental treatments provided by our students
Our need for new patients can vary greatly from year to year and at different times of the year. We cannot guarantee to take everybody for treatment and waiting times for some treatments can be up to a year.
We offer the following simple treatments:
- Tooth extractions
- Deep cleaning
- Crowns or caps
- Root canal treatments
We do not offer:
- Routine check-ups
- Cosmetic Dentistry
- Complex treatment
- Implants and braces
- Treatment to under 16 year olds
Some patients may be taken on for very specific treatments only and the rest of the care will be in general dental practice.
Emergency and ongoing care
We do not provide emergency dental care.
It is strongly advised that you register with a dentist in addition to receiving treatment with us. This dentist will be expected to provide emergency care for you, as we are unable to do this.
Student treatment clinics do not provide long term-care for patients. To ensure that we have a steady flow of new patients enrolling for treatment, at the end of your treatment, you will be discharged back to your dentist for continuing care.
