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 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.
