Work in the Community
Through our dental charity, The Town Hall Foundation, we are focused on the mission of providing oral healthcare treatments and oral health education.
Beechwood Dental form part of the Town Hall Group, and we work regularly in the community through our dental charity, The Town Hall Foundation, where we are focused on the mission of providing oral healthcare treatments and oral health education for those who need it the most.
Our oral healthcare is predominantly focused on the homeless, ex-homeless and isolated, and provides these treatments to build confidence of those impacted by homelessness and the accompanying issues to help get them back in to work. Confidence and mental wellbeing are a huge roadblock when it comes to people seeking work, and poor dental hygiene is one of the greatest issues affecting these groups. By providing these treatments, we dramatically increase the confidence of the clients we work with and increase their ability to find employment.
The patients that we treat often have multi-disciplinary dental needs, requiring advanced dental care. As many of these patients come from at risk backgrounds, such as abused women or long term homeless, we provide them with a mental health wellbeing practitioner and our team of care coordinators to assist them at every step of their treatment.
Our Oral health education focuses on early age children in schools, as well as developmentally disabled individuals, ranging from children to adults, and is a preventative measure to encourage proper oral hygiene from an early age, preventing the need for expensive treatments as they reach adulthood, lessening the financial strain on the NHS.
