Dental services are limited to evaluation and treatment of inpatients with emergent dental complications or oral infections and treatment of outpatients who need to be seen in the hospital setting due to their medical conditions. The clinic also provides consultative services for patients prior to as well as following stem cell transplantation and treatment for head and neck cancer. We work closely with outside referring dentists and physicians as a team to determine the most appropriate treatment plan in light of previous therapies and ongoing medical care. Routine dental care for the general population is not provided at Brigham and Women's Hospital.
