Home Visits

This was set up as part of a new initiative between Torrington Dental Practice and the local health authority (PCT), we offer to make visits to nursing homes and to house bound individuals who might otherwise have difficulty in accessing NHS dental services, due to their disability.

NHS dental treatment is not free, so patients have to pay the normal NHS statutory dental charges unless they are exempt, but do not pay a call out fee.

Because dentistry requires a lot of specialist equipment we are extremely limited to the type of service we can offer at home. It’s possible to carry out most denture related treatments; although it may be necessary to take dentures away for laboratory procedures such as relines and repairs. Where necessary, arrangements can be made for fillings, extractions, etc., with a visit to our wheelchair- friendly surgery or if necessary a suitable specialist referral.

If you are aware of any housebound patients or care home that might benefit from this service please contact the surgery:

01805 623657


This is a valuable additional service that we and the local PCT offer.
