Between the NHS and the school there is concentrated clinical expertise covering all dental specialities. These unique features, such as the Primary Treatment Unit and other speciality services, makes the Dental Hospital an important resource to the General Dental Practitioners and the population of this region.

Work to build the first integrated, stand-alone dental hospital and dental school in the UK for almost 40 years began onsite in September 2013. 

The landmark development, led by Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Trust, together with its partners the University of Birmingham, Birmingham and Solihull LIFT (Bas LIFT) and Calthorpe Estates, was granted detailed planning permission in December 2012 for the site, which is the former home of BBC Pebble Mill studios.

The development is seen as highly strategic for the city, being a key element of the new Edgbaston Medical Quarter and further enhances the city’s reputation as a hub of Medicine, Learning and Life Sciences.

Totalling 15,465 sqm, it houses a range of services for the public including walk-in emergency dental care, Restorative Dentistry, Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Orthodontics and Paediatric Dentistry.
