Trusted hands, touching lives.



One of the services rendered by the Nigerian Navy Reference Hospital (NNRH) Calabar is oral care in the dental department of the hospital. The dental department caters for patients drawn from the Armed Forces, their families and the civilian populace in the immediate environment and beyond. The dental clinic is run from 8am to 4pm on week days, however there is always a dental surgeon on call. 

NNRH Calabar is equiped with ultra-modern dental units made by Dentsply Sirona, Germany. The hospital has also acquired the Cerec machine and Sirona X5 milling machine which gives the clinic the capacity to design and produce dental crowns and implants in minutes!

The department is also fitted with digital Sirona Orthophos XL X-Ray equipment capable of producing panoramic dental X-Rays as well as the Sirona Gallelio dental X-Ray machine for 3D images.

The dentistry arm of the hospital currently has four sub-departments with the hope of establishing others in the near future. The departments in existence are:

i. Oral Diagnosis: This department is the first to have contact with a new patient coming to dental clinic after the patient has been registered. Patient is clerked, examined, investigation(s) conducted if need be and diagnosis is made. Patient then sent to appropriate department based on the diagnosis.

ii. Oral and Maxillofacial: The department carries out procedures ranging from simple extractions to minor oral surgery.

iii. Conservative/Restorative: Conservative management of carious tooth, treatments like fillings and root canal therapy. Restorative section has under it a well-equipped dental laboratory manned by dental technologists. We do restoration of bad or missing tooth by fabricating removable partial denture and fixed denture.

iv. Periodontology: various periodontal treatments including scaling and polishing and root planing.
