The old building in St Marys Row

The facility was originally established at Odd Fellows Hall on Temple Street as the Birmingham Dental Dispensary in January 1858.[2]

It moved to 2 Upper Priory in 1863 and to 9 Broad Street in 1871 and, after being formally constituted as the Birmingham Dental Hospital in 1880,[2] it relocated to 71 Newhall Street in 1882.[3] It moved again, this time to 132 Great Charles Street in 1905 and then re-located to purpose-built facilities, designed by S. N. Cooke & Partners,[4] in St Mary's Row (later known as St Chad's Queensway) in 1966.[5]

After the old St Mary's Row facility became decrepit, planning consent for a new facility to be located on the site of the former Pebble Mill Studios was obtained in November 2012.[6] The new facility was procured under a private finance initiative contract in 2013 and was designed by One Create Environments.[7]

It was built by Galliford Try at a cost of £34 million[7] and was officially opened by Queen Elizabeth II in November 2015.[8] Patients were first admitted in March 2016.[9]
