Access to NHS Dentistry

Access to NHS Dentistry is currently limited during the pandemic as all dentists have been asked to stop all routine “face-to-face” dental care. However, if you need urgent dental care, help is at hand:

CALL your dental practice: They will give you advice over the telephone and make arrangements for you if you need to be seen.

If you don’t have a dentist, find your nearest dentist and CALL them. You can search for your nearest dentist at

You can also contact NHS 111:

NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can ask for a translator if you need one. If you’re deaf, you can use the NHS 111 British Sign Language Service: or call 18001 111 on a textphone.

Do not worry if you have COVID-19  symptoms, appropriate arrangements can be made to see if you need urgent dental care.
