People with long term and/or progressive medical condition; mental illness or dementia and increasing frailty are not always able to travel to a dental surgery. Furthermore, many old and infirm people retain their teeth for much longer and therefore the range and complexity of oral/dental problems is greater than it has been before. Many people may also have mobility or other problems which severely limit their ability to present themselves at a dental surgery.
For some people access to oral healthcare services is achievable only through the provision of domiciliary oral healthcare. Merrow Park Dental Practice provide domiciliary care that reaches out to patients who cannot access a service by themselves for reasons of disabilities.

- To provide an oral health care service to address patients needs, taking into account their personal circumstances and their wishes, consistent with the most appropriate use of resources.
