Oral, Maxillofacial & Orthodontics

The Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Department is situated on the first floor of Sutton Wing, Peterborough District Hospital.

There are three consultants within the department.  You will find them listed, along with other staff members further down this page.

Oral Day Surgery Unit (OSDU)

At initial consultation all patients who are listed for Day Surgery are assessed and agree a date to come back for their operation.  We carry out five general anaesthetic sessions a week in the mornings and five local anaesthetic sessions a week in the afternoons.

Soft Tissue Clinic

Soft tissue surgery is carried out in ODSU on Friday mornings, weeks two, four and five.  This includes biopsy of oral conditions and treatment of facial skin lesions.

Laser Surgery

Once a month for treatment of oral and facial lesions.

Digital X-ray System

We have within the department a digital X-ray system, which gives instant access to images, without the need for films.  Therefore no development times, meaning rapid throughput of patients.
