Oral Surgery Services - NHS and Private
Here at Langley Dental Practice we are a specialist surgical referral centre. We have a specialist NHS contract to provide minor oral surgery procedures to patients from all over the Rochdale borough. The type of surgical procedures that we provide include the removal of wisdom teeth, the removal of fractured or retained roots, the removal of cysts of the jaws, soft tissue biopsies and dental apical surgery. These treatments are performed under local anaesthetic with or without intravenous sedation. Our specialist team is led by Dr Tariq Drabu who is registered with the General Dental Council (GDC) as a specialist in oral surgery. Tariq has over 25 years experience in dentistry and has been on the GDC specialist list in oral surgery since 2002. Patients who are eligible for this service must have a GP within the Rochdale borough.
Before we started providing this service at Langley Dental Practice, these type of procedures used to be provided only in hospitals. However we have been providing these services for eight years resulting in better patient care. Firstly care and treatment is provided closer to home in a friendly clinic type premises rather than a large impersonal hospital. Secondly we managed apache and treat patients through the service within 4 to 6 weeks which is a much shorter waiting time than months in the hospital sector. Thirdly we are quicker and cheaper than the hospital sector which says the taxpayer money; this money can be put to good use in other sectors of the NHS.
Dr Tariq Drabu is supported by his superb dental nursing team led by senior nurse Kerry Oliver. Tariq leads a team of dedicated surgeons and is supported by Dr Sin Yong and Dr Tina Liu. Sin is also a registered specialist in oral surgery and Tina has just completed a Masters Postgraduate program in oral surgery at the University of Manchester.
Over the past eight years feedback from service users has been overwhelmingly positive. They have highlighted the friendly nature of Tariq and his team. There has also been praise for the rapid turnaround time between consultation and treatment. The premises at Langley Dental Practice has also been singled out for its cleanliness and modern high-tech facilities.
Although this facility is NHS based we regularly accept referrals to see patients on a private basis for all types of oral surgery procedures. Please contact our reception staff for further details on 01616432428.
