  • Jaw necrosis clinic

    The department of oral surgery draws from multiple disciplines for the management of patients with established jaw necrosis as well as those at risk of developing jaw necrosis when dental extractions are required.

    The team is made up from a range of different healthcare professionals including dental (oral surgery, sedation and special care, restorative), surgery (oral and maxillofacial, ear nose throat, plastics), oncology (head and neck, breast, prostate, multiple myeloma), and auxiliaries (dietetics, speech and language, physiotherapy).

    Those patients that fit these criteria can be referred to the clinic via this referral form (Word 32Kb). Please indicate in the ‘Reason for referral’ section that you would like your patient to be seen in the jaw necrosis clinic.

    Referrers should be aware that this clinic cannot provide routine dental care or treatment and referral requesting will not be accepted.

  • Dental and maxillofacial radiology

    The department has dental X-ray equipment, ultrasound, lithotripsy, sialendoscopy, fluoroscopy and cone beam computed tomography.

    Practitioners can refer images securely for radiology reports to and a written report will be issued.

    Dentists sending radiographs to our dental radiology department for a second opinion, please use the external dental radiograph opinion proforma (PDF 642Kb).
