This specialty covers babies and children of up to 18 years of age who have dental disorders.
Please note this is not a general dental service.
Many childhood disorders can complicate dental care, for example children with congenital heart disease can be at particular risk from dental infection, as can children who are immunosuppressed.
Benefits of children's dentistry at Cromwell Hospital
When a child with an underlying medical problem requires dental care, they may already be extremely anxious about being in a clinical environment. Our paediatric dentists provide positive experiences for your child while also addressing his or her treatment needs.
Whatever your child's medical needs are, our highly experienced paediatric team is dedicated to giving him or her the best possible care.
Please note that we do not provide a paediatric intensive care unit at Cromwell Hospital. However, any deteriorating child will be quickly assessed and stabilised by a Resident Medical Officer (RMO) trained in paediatric intensive care, supported by an on-call Paediatric Intensive Care Consultant, before being transferred to the most appropriate paediatric intensive care provider by the Children’s Acute Transport Service (CATS).
