Clinical Department

Oral medicine & facial pain


Oral medicine is the specialty concerned with the oral health care of patients with chronic, recurrent and medically related disorders of the oral and maxillofacial region, their diagnosis and non-surgical management.

Oral medicine sits at the interface between dentistry and medicine. The Oral Medicine team at The Lister Hospital has both medical and dental expertise and has considerable experience in facial pain, allowing patients to be offered the highest levels of treatment.

The key difference from Oral Surgery and Maxillofacial Surgery is that in Oral Medicine the emphasis is on conditions that are primarily managed without the need for surgery.


Outpatient department opening hours:

Monday – Friday: 8.00am – 8.00pm

The Oral Medicine clinic is available on Wednesdays from 2.00pm – 8.00pm
