Unfortunately, there may be times when you need to see a dentist as quickly as possible. Whether the issue is debilitating toothache, facial swelling, haemorrhage, we will always try our best to find you an “Urgent Appointment Slot”.
Each working day we offer our registered patients “Urgent appointments”.
It is important that you telephone the Practice before 10 am in the morning to be allocated an appointment (Please Note that this is subject to availability, first come, first served).
On contacting the practice our receptionists will ask you some “Triage questions of your symptoms” over the telephone, we will try to offer advice on how to manage your pain in the meantime.
This Triage information is passed onto your dentist before your appointment.
When the Dental Practice is closed, as NHS patients you are able to access out of hour’s service by telephoning 111.
The NHS has advisers whom will listen to your symptoms, offer advice or offer access to an NHS Dentist for urgent care at a local hospital dental suite.
Go to the accident and emergency (A&E) department of your local hospital if you:
• Uncontrollable bleeding following dental extractions
• Rapidly increasing swelling around the throat or eye
• Severe trauma to the face and jaws
