Emergency Dental Care

Emergency or urgent treatment means treatment that the dentist considers necessary to relieve severe pain (eg. toothache or dental abscess) or prevent your oral condition deteriorating before you can make a normal appointment.

We offer a small number of appointments during practice opening hours for patients who need urgent treatment, but do not have an appointment. If you think you need urgent treatment you can contact us by phone on 01744 739600
