All our clinics have a protected emergency slot for each surgery, available every day for the urgent need of patients in pain. To add to this any unused or cancelled slots also automatically become available for emergency use. You need never worry about suffering from a dental emergency any longer than you must.
Please note emergency appointments are offered on the day and on a first come, first served basis only.
If you need dental treatment in an emergency
- If you are one of our regular patients, call us as we may be able to offer one of our emergency appointments at short notice
- If you are not and don't have a dentist, find one using NHS 111
If you need to see a dentist out of hours
- Call us as our answerphone message may advise where to get out-of-hours treatment
- Call NHS 111 to find an out-of-hours dental service near you
Don't contact your GP, as they won't be able to offer emergency or out-of-hours dental care.
If you're in pain while waiting to see a dentist, take painkillers. NHS 111 can also offer other self-care advice.
When to go to hospital
Only go to accident and emergency (A&E) in serious circumstances, such as:
- Severe pain
- Heavy bleeding
- Injuries to the face, mouth, or teeth
If you're not sure whether you should go to A&E, contact NHS 111, who will be able to advise you.
