Nelson Hospital Dental Department

At the Nelson Hospital Dental Department we provide dental treatments that require hospital admission or specialised care in a way that compliments private dentistry practices.

Nelson Hospital Dental Department Services:

We offer hospital dental services to people of all ages but in slightly different capacities:
  • Child Oral Health Care
Under the Community Oral Health Service children from 12 months old to Year 8 are able to receive free oral care. 
For more information call 0800 TALKTEETH or consult the website www.letstalkteeth.co.nz

  • Adolescent Oral Health Care
The Nelson Hospital Dental Department has relationships with private dentists that are able to provide free oral health care for adolescents between Years 9 and 13.
For more information call 0800 TALKTEETH

  • Adult Oral Health Care
Most adult dentistry is performed by dentists in private practice. However, the Nelson Hospital Dental Department provides dental treatment in cases where:
    • oral health services are an essential part of an inpatient's hospital medical or surgical treatment.
    • Dental services requiring hospital admission
    • Specialist oral health care services for those with severe conditions or disabilities that are unable to be treated properly in a private practice.
  • All hospital dental services are accessed by way of a referral by GPs, Private Dentists, School Dental Therapists and Public Health Nurses.
