Dental Services

The Belfast Trust does not manage General Dental Practioners that you would find in your high street.  If you are looking for details of NHS registered dentists, you can find them on the HSC Business Services Organisation website

Emergency Dental Services

General Dental Practices are required to provide Registered Patients with an out-of-hours telephone number where patients can speak to a dentist within a reasonable period. This information is normally available on the answering machine of your dentist. Should the dentist decide treatment is required then this should be provided within a reasonable period, normally within 24 hours.

Non-registered patients have no contractual rights to the above provision from individual general dental practitioners and may therefore have to contact a number of practices before they find a dentist willing to provide the necessary care.
