SDH provides specialist treatment to people referred state-wide for Paediatric Dentistry, Orthodontics, Periodontics, Oral Surgery and Diagnostic Imaging, Prosthodontics, Endodontics, Oral Pathology, Oral and Maxillo-facial Surgery and Implantology services. The Special Care Dental Unit provides care to those with chronic mental health conditions and the elderly.
