Dental Care Access

Students from the School of Dentistry at The University of Manchester are helping transform the provision of dental care in less well-off areas of South Manchester.

A collaborative project between the University and Manchester Primary Care Trust is providing state-of-the-art surgeries, so that dental students can offer care to people living in Woodhouse Park in Wythenshawe.


The students will work alongside qualified dentists to provide a comprehensive range of treatments free of charge to residents who are not under the care of an NHS dentist, on an appointment basis.

The outreach scheme will also help educate the budding dentists, who will work alongside qualified practitioners to gain experience of paediatric dentistry, orthodontics and restorative dental treatment.
