Dental Outreach to Orange Base Hospital
27 September 2011
In an attempt to increase the availability of orofacial pain and prosthodontic management in regional NSW, Professor Iven Klineberg and the postgraduate prosthodontic students have been visiting the new Orange Base Hospital on a monthly basis.
These trips have proved very rewarding for those who have been involved and have facilitated the successful management of many fascinating and challenging cases of temporomandibular disorders and orofacial pain.
Many of the patients who have been treated in these clinics would not have been managed comprehensively for their pain had these visits not been conducted. It would have meant a trip to Sydney which is not always possible.
The sessions in Orange are in addition to the weekly sessions specifically for complex orofacial pain at the Westmead Center for Oral Health.
The Orange Dental Clinic has been incorporated into the new Orange Base Hospital and is a very modern and well-equipped facility that is now actively providing up-to-date and comprehensive treatment, often with collaboration with specialists in the Hospital and practice.
