The Eastman Dental Hospital (EDH) is one of UK's largest secondary/tertiary care providers of dentistry and is staffed by specialists and postgraduate dentists. EDH provides care across all dental specialties for patients in North London and further afield, treating around 105,000 outpatients annually. It provides comprehensive oral health services, focusing on specialised treatment needs. These range from the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of all conditions affecting the mouth and facial bones, and salivary glands. The EDH also undertakes the correction of facial deformities and treatment of facial fractures as well as the repair of damaged oral tissues including the teeth.
The EDH does not have a walk-in service and does not offer any acute emergency service except for patients who have suffered facial trauma. This service is offered through the accident and emergency department at University College Hospital.
