Bristol Dental Hospital also accepts referrals to all sub-specialities via the Choose and Book website.

Patients whose treatment is considered within the scope of a general dental practitioner may be offered treatment on the undergraduate treatment programme, rather than with a member of specialist staff.

Patients who wish to seek primary care via the undergraduate teaching programme may self-refer if waiting lists are open by writing to the University of Bristol Dental School or calling 0117 342 4337. Before being accepted for treatment they will be assessed to establish whether they are suitable for undergraduate treatment.

For dental emergencies please contact  08451 206 680.

Getting here

The entrance to the Dental Hospital is in Lower Maudlin Street, Bristol, near the bus station and Broadmead shopping centre. The Bristol Royal Infirmary is also close by, and we are next door to Bristol Eye Hospital. The Dental Hospital has limited disabled parking at the rear of the hospital via Deep Street, as well as some at the front of the hospital. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee you a space.  There is a ramp at our main entrance for wheelchair users.

Hospital free bus

A free Hospital Shuttle bus links with the city centre, Bristol Temple Meads Train Station and the Dental Hospital.

Public transport

The bus station is approximately 100 yards away. Bristol Temple Meads is a short bus journey (numbers 8, 9 and the free Hospital Shuttle Bus) from the hospital.

Please note, we do not pay taxi or bus fares, unless you are a patient claiming Income Support or Family Credit. For further information, please contact tel no: 0117 342 2286.

Car parking

We regret that there is no car parking at the hospital. There is very limited public parking on Pay and Display near the Dental Hospital and there are a few multi-storey car parks in the vicinity. There are Park and Ride schemes at Brislington and Long Ashton and the buses stop outside Primark on the Haymarket.

Bristol City Council have produced a map of the city centre where details of car parks (times/charges) can be accessed.  


The nearest cafe for patients is in the Bristol Eye Hospital.
