Better Care

Volunteer to be part of the future of dentistry

The new Birmingham Dental Hospital and School of Dentistry will soon open its doors to patients.

The £50 million facility on the former BBC Studios site at Pebble Mill, Edgbaston will be the first stand-alone dental hospital and school in the UK for 40 years.

The four-storey building will house a range of services for the public, including urgent dental care, restorative dentistry, oral surgery, oral medicine, orthodontics and paediatric dentistry.

The new hospital is expected to treat more than 100,000 patients each year.
