Here at The Temple Practice, our dentists and nurses have helped many thousands of patients in and around Leeds receive the care they need to ensure they have the freedom to enjoy life. Through our Domiciliary Dental Care service we’re able to get to patients who may otherwise be unable to access the dental care they need.
Prevention is key
Dentistry is not just about keeping your teeth clean. It is also about maintaining healthy gums, and preventing the kind of diseases that can restrict or harm a healthy life. Did you know that your dentist may be able to detect the early onset of diseases such as heart disease and several cancers, to name but a few? And very recently, promising studies have been undertaken which show clear links between gum disease and Alzheimers in over 90% of Alzheimers sufferers. It is therefore equally as important for our patients who have their own teeth or no teeth at all to have regular dental screening.
As our population benefits from the increase in life expectancy, then more than ever it is vital to ensure that teeth gums are kept clean and healthy to ensure that there is a barrier to the kind of diseases described above which may otherwise restrict our lives.

Domiciliary Dental Care FAQ
Domiciliary dental care refers to dental services provided to individuals who are unable to access traditional dental clinics due to mobility issues, medical conditions, other limitations, or patient choice. It involves bringing dental care directly to patients in their homes or healthcare facilities.
Domiciliary dental care can be beneficial for all, but focuses on individuals with limited mobility, the elderly, patients with disabilities, and those who are homebound or reside in long-term care facilities. It ensures they receive essential dental treatment and oral health care without the need to travel to a clinic.
Domiciliary dental care offers a range of services, including routine dental check-ups, preventive care, oral hygiene instructions, dental cleanings, denture care, dental fillings, and extractions. The goal is to address oral health issues and maintain or improve overall oral well-being in a comfortable and convenient setting.
Domiciliary dental care is delivered by our team of qualified dental professionals who bring portable equipment and supplies to a patient’s location. Our excellent team ensures the necessary instruments, tools, and materials are available to provide comprehensive dental care in a safe and hygienic manner.
