Horbury Dental Care has a dedicated and specialist Minor Oral Surgery service whereby it is able to carry out minor oral surgery within the practice. Here at Horbury Dental Care we have a contract with NHS England to provide a minor oral surgery service to referring dentists within the Wakefield area.
The advantage of using our MOS Service is that a patient can have their treatment carried out in the comfort of a dental practice rather than being referred to the hospital. Additionally, the waiting times for any treatment are substantially lower and we are able to arrange to see a patient within a week or two. Our surgeons are fully qualified and accredited and approved by NHS England.
Our MOS Service offers the following treatments within the practice:
- removal of broken teeth;
- removal of buried roots;
- removal of partially impacted wisdom teeth;
- removal of third molars;
- extractions of special difficulty;
All minor oral surgery procedures are carried out under local aesthetic where the patient is given an injection into the gum, yet remains wide awake. Whilst most patients find the thought of the procedure worse than the procedure itself, we have highly trained staff to support them through the process. Where a patient is particularly nervous then we are able to offer IV sedation with a local aesthetic.
We have a dedicated referrals manager, who is able to discuss any part of the patient's referral and treatment with the patient, and to also offer advice.
If you are a patient at Horbury Dental Care please discuss this service with your dentist. If you are a patient at another dental practice, then you should in the first instance speak with your own dentist. If you are a dentist who would like to refer a patient to us under this scheme, please do so through the RMS by visiting www.dental-referrals.org. You can also refer your patients to us directly on a private basis by using the online referral form.
