The Eastman Dental Hospital (EDH) is one of UK's largest secondary and tertiary care providers of dentistry in North London. It has been established for over 60 years and caters for patients north of the river and further afield, treating around 85,000 outpatients annually.
The EDH provides comprehensive oral health services with a focus on specialised treatment needs. Services offered cover the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of all conditions affecting the mouth and associated structures, including the facial bones, jaws and salivary glands, to the correction of facial deformities and treatment of facial fractures as well as the repair of damaged oral tissues and teeth.
The EDH is world-renowned for its specialist services, which include cleft restorative clinics, ortho-perio clinics, orofacial pain, orthognathic clinics. We were the first to host a dedicated clinic for hypodontia and are home to the only craniofacial deformity clinic. Together with its partner, the UCL Eastman Dental Institute, the EDH is a major national and international centre for specialist training and research.
In 2019, services currently provided at the RNTNEH and Eastman Dental Hospital, as well some services from other UCLH sites, will move to a new building on Huntley Street. The new state-of-the-art centre has been co-designed with patients and staff and supports UCLH’s vision to provide top quality patient care, excellent education and world class research. Moving closer to other UCLH sites will mean that the centre will be part of the hub of University College Hospital sites and close to UCL campus, facilitating more one stop clinics, joint working, research and clinical trials.
