Children

1. The clinic treats children up to the age of 11 for both treatment and regular check-ups. Children between the age of 11 and 18 (or 21 if in full-time education) can use the Jersey Dental Fitness Scheme provided the family income falls within the proscribed limits.

People with special needs

2. The clinic treats those with special needs who cannot be seen at the surgeries of private dentists.

Specialised treatment

3. Those who require specialised treatment, including oral and facial surgery following accidents or illness, are treated at the clinic. It also caters for those over 11, still in full-time education requiring braces or restorative work.

Outreach work

4. Dentists can visit Overdale, Sandybrook and nursing homes in order to treat those who are unable to travel to the clinic.  However, they must have a referral from a private GP or Dental Practitioner.
