Our Oral Health Information Centre also contains a preventative dental unit (PDU). The PDU is a permanent, self-contained unit dedicated to oral health education, it is open to the general public without the need to enter a clinical environment.
The PDU provides a pleasant environment with reception, consultation areas and classroom for group activities to provide patient-centred guidance and education from qualified Oral Health Educators
The PDU is designed to remove barriers to accessing dental services with a relaxed and approachable ambience to be more encouraging to those with a dental phobia and allow them to ask questions about their oral health in an unhurried way.
The PDU is an ideal place for anyone who is reluctant to visit a dentist for any reason to start their journey to better oral health. From parents who want their child’s first experience of dental care to be a positive rather than scary one to people with a phobia, the PDU is friendly and welcoming and helps people of all ages to improve their oral health.
