Dental care is carried out by a dentist. Please do not visit Accident and Emergency or a GP practices for problems with your teeth. You will not be seen and will be asked to contact a dental practice instead.
Urgent dental care
If you have an urgent dental problem or you are in extreme pain, then please contact your usual dental practice for advice and treatment. After 5pm weekday evenings, weekends and bank holidays you should contact NHS 111.
If you do not have a regular dental practice, then call a local practice to access urgent treatment or advice as required. You can find a list of dental practices using the search tool below.
Routine dental care
For routine dental care, such as a check-up, or if it’s not urgent, contact your usual dental practice.
If you do not have a regular dental practice, then contact any local practice. Search for a dentist opposite.
