Emergency Dental Care

Sometimes it is very important that a dentist sees you as soon as possible when a problem arises. Toothache, swelling and sharp broken teeth need to be treated as urgently. In the event of an accident, a knocked-out or loose tooth should always be treated immediately

Emergency appointments are available every weekday for registered patients. We would ask patients to call as early in the day as possible when our experienced team of receptionists will assess your problem and direct you to the earliest and most appropriate appointment. If the lines are busy when you call, please leave a message on the answerphone with a brief summary of the problem and you will be contacted as soon as possible to arrange a time to attend

Out of hours emergency advice is available to all our patients. Should a problem arise during the week outside surgery hours (8.30 am to 5pm) or on weekends or bank holidays please contact the ‘on-call’ dentist. Details of how to make contact are listed on the answerphone message when you call the practice number

Arrangements can be made for patients to be seen at the practice ‘out of hours’ should it be necessary. The ‘on-call’ dentist will assess the degree of your emergency and if appropriate arrangements will be made to open the surgery and have available staff to attend to your problem. There is a £130 charge for this service plus the cost of any treatment required. Patients registered on a payment plan only have to pay the first £35, the rest of the ‘call-out’ fee and treatment is covered on insurance. NHS patients have the choice to pay for this service as a private option or can be directed to local NHS hospital services (contact numbers listed on the practice answerphone message)
