Dental emergencies

If you are experiencing unusual or excessive bleeding, trauma or swelling, seek help immediately.

Call us during working hours and we will do everything we can to see you as soon as possible.

Call the NHS out of hours – their 111 service is staffed by experienced advisers and healthcare professionals who will be able to direct you towards the best course of action. This could be an emergency dentist, a late-night pharmacy, a walk-in centre or even A&E.

Common urgent problems include toothache, lost fillings or crowns and denture problems. Please phone us on the day for availability and we will do our best to make sure you are seen as soon as possible.

Non-registered patients

Our ability to offer emergency treatment for non-registered patients will depend on the level of demand from registered patients, who will always be given priority. We make no guarantee that a non-registered patient will be given an appointment.
