How to get the help you need for dental emergencies during the Covid-19 pandemic

The practice is open all the usual surgery hours, but we are only allowing patients to enter the building if they have an appointment. Please phone for advice or if you need to book in.

For plan members, you can seek assistance from any Dentist when the practice is closed, just keep your receipts and you can claim back the cost of the emergency work. Exclusions may apply, so please ring Practice Plan on 01691684120 for advice or assistance finding a Dentist.

For our patients needing urgent dental care during evenings or weekends, or for people who do not have a Dentist, please phone the Urgent Dental Care Service on 03333323800.
