NOTE! – Emergency appointments are ONLY for patients who are:
- In pain
- Have a condition that may deteriorate significantly if not treated as an emergency. Examples: Swelling, bleeding after extraction, temporary crown or filling, crown or bridge fallen has out or off, or a broken denture.
In an emergency appointment, we will try to get you out of pain, provide immediately necessary treatment and then probably ask you to see your own dentist for an appointment to assess what permanent treatment which will be needed to sort your problem out.
Please understand that you will have to wait your turn as we see patients on a first come, first served basis– except in cases of young children or those medically compromised.
If you arrive in our emergency hours, you will be seen however long it takes.
Each of our dentists takes one turn a week seeing emergencies – so you may not see your own dentist.
The cost is £21.60, unless you are in an open, current, course of treatment in which case you will not be charged. An open course of treatment means one that has not yet been closed on the computer ready for sending to the Dental Practice Board.
