Torbay Hospital provides the following services:

Referral based service

Patients are seen in the Department following a referral from General Dental Practitioners (your dentist), General Medical Practitioners (your doctor) and Consultant Colleagues. It is essential that patients continue to visit their Dentist regularly throughout any course of specialist treatment at the hospital.

Finding a dentist

If you do not have a local NHS dentist we suggest you contact the following for help and guidance:

  • The NHS website
    The official gateway to National Health Service organisations on the Internet. Also includes a list of local services e.g. dentists.

  • NHS 111
    Or call NHS 111 on 111.

  • British Dental Association
    Using the ‘Quickmenu’ you can select the ‘Find a Dentist’ option.

Waiting times

The department works to current targets of seeing new patients within 13 weeks of referral.
