What to do if you have a dental emergency

Please contact us in the first instance and we will be able to give you over-the-phone advice on what you need to do. If you require an emergency appointment, we will be able to schedule this for you.

If you cannot get in touch with a dentist out of hours and you believe you have a dental emergency, you can call NHS 111 for further advice. If you are in severe pain or are experiencing heavy bleeding, your best option may be to go to hospital.
