Dental and maxillofacial surgery

Please note
Every hospital in England has now been asked to suspend all non-urgent elective operations in view of current COVID 19 Pandemic. Therefore the dental and maxillofacial unit is currently closed for routine assessment and treatment appointments. To access our telephone triage system please contact us on 01737 231650 between 9am -4pm Mon-Fri. Outside these hours please contact NHS 111.

Based at East Surrey Hospital, the dental and maxillofacial team provides a range of specialist dental services – from dental treatment under general anaesthesia to the treatment of patients with complex dental disease requiring multi-disciplinary care.

Access to these services is normally by referral from the patient’s general dental practitioner or medical GP.

A list of local NHS dentists can be obtained from the Surrey Dental Helpline – phone 111 and ask to speak to the Surrey Dental Helpline.

Dental services manager

“I visited the dental department on two occasions... On both occasions I was treated in a timely and caring manner and the treatment was speedy, painless and effective. I am sorry I cannot remember the names of all those involved but I would like you to pass on my thanks for their caring, helpful and efficient attitude throughout the treatment. They were a credit to the hospital and the NHS”.
