The Oral Medicine Consultancy Clinic offers treatment to patients with a wide diversity of oral diseases, including ulcers, white patches (Leukoplakia), lumps, salivary gland diseases and oral infections. In addition, we provide treatment to Temporo-mandibular joint disorders, pain of non-dental origin, such burning mouth, and nerve pain. In some cases, patients might undergo a biopsy or a swab in order to reach a conclusive diagnosis of their oral disease.
The service is provided in the teaching clinic where you will be seen by a Consultant in Oral Medicine, assisted by a group of students learning from the case presented.
Patients can be either self-referred (come to the clinic on their own), or be referred by another medical or dental practitioner.
You need to register in person at the Hospital and receive dental screening at the Admission Clinic.
Cost of treatment
Patients registered in the Hospital and seen in the Oral Medicine Teaching Clinic do not pay the consultancy fees, unless lab tests are required, in which cases the patient will cover lab charges.
During term-time (September-June) only.
The clinic is not operational on public holidays and during summer (July and August).
