Dental care for children who may need sedation.

Telephone: 01344 458121
Email: cds.hq@berkshire.nhs.uk
Website:  
Address: Berkshire Community Dental HQ Office, Skimped Hill Health Centre, Skimped Hill Lane, Bracknell

Area Covered: West Berks
What We Do:

Our service is here for your child if they need a lot of treatment and might be uncooperative, nervous or might need sedation from general anaesthetic. We can also help if you child has been referred for a particular dental problem. Sometimes, children who need to have a lot of teeth out or have severe dental infection might need to have their treatment under general anaesthetic in hospital. We will firstly assess your child at one of our clinics to see if this is the most suitable way to take their teeth out. However, we are unable to take children’s teeth out under general anaesthetic for orthodontic treatment. We do not normally treat children who can be treated by a general dentist.

Therapy Directory is an online resource, offering expert information and guidance on a number of therapies that can support and improve the lives of those living with health difficulties.

The website lists over 2,000 professional therapists, experts in their field of therapy and you can find expert information and advice on all therapies via the fact sheets section. Therapists can be contacted directly from their profiles, and you can filter your search via location and therapy.

To ensure the professionalism of Therapy Directory, all listed therapists have provided us with qualifications and insurance cover or proof of membership with a professional body.

Here at Therapy Directory, we believe everyone deserves health and happiness, and living with a health condition that effects you and your family’s daily life, can be hugely debilitating. While we all have our own ways of coping, having access to information about complementary and alternative therapies can be hugely helpful.
