Your Local Dentist
Severe toothache, infection or injury within your mouth or to your teeth that needs urgent attention?
You should contact your Dental Practice for an appointment. Even if your Practice is closed, you will hear a message which provides details of their out of hours arrangements for providing advice and treatment.
Not registered with a Dentist?
In order to receive the full range of dental treatment and care under the NHS you must be registered with a Dentist. If you don’t have a regular Dentist, contact NHS 111 for advice on where you can get urgent care.
The cost of emergency dental treatment is currently £22.70 You may be advised to make another appointment for a separate course of non-urgent treatment.
When you register with a Dentist you’ll be registered for life, unless you or your Dentist request your registration to be withdrawn.
If you attend another Dentist for treatment and don’t tell them you’re registered elsewhere, your registration will automatically transfer to your new Dentist.
Not all Dentists will take on new NHS patients so it’s important to ask them if they’re able to take you on as an NHS patient during your first contact with them.
Worried about persistent mouth, tooth or gum problems?
