For emergency dental care, patients must phone 111. This service is provided to any patient, whether NHS or private, who requires out of hours dental treatment outside of their normal dentist's opening hours, or is just visiting the area. Triage will determine the patient's need and an appointment will be given if appropriate. Referral is not needed by a dentist.
The cost of treatment for all services and clinics is the same as at any other NHS dental practice, unless individuals are exempt from charges, for which proof is normally required.
For information regarding your nearest out of hours dental services or to book an emergency appointment, call 111 (For a BSL interpreter see NHS 111 - SignVideo)
