Birmingham Dental Hospital and School of Dentistry, Pebble Mill
The aim of the new Birmingham Dental Hospital and School of Dentistry is to continue to provide a unique range of dental services for the people of the West Midlands. As an integral part of the University of Birmingham’s School of Dentistry, it also supports undergraduate and postgraduate dental education.
The current dental hospital is a 10 storey high, 50-year-old building in the city centre and is in need of major refurbishment, which would be expensive and cause much disruption to services. The building of a new dental hospital on a different site will allow updated modern facilities to be provided for patients, students and staff, as well as offering greater connectivity with the University of Birmingham. The education and service provided in this new building will integrate with outreach facilities in Oldbury and Boots in the Birmingham city centre, providing facilities Birmingham and the West Midlands can be proud of.
The proposed building would be four storeys high (ground plus three floors) and would be split in two – one area for patient services and the other for education purposes. The two sections are joined together via a central atrium.
