Emergency Dental Treatment
A GP is not appropriately trained to deal with dental problems.
This includes toothache, abscesses and problems experienced after dental treatment. We cannot provide antibiotics as it is necessary to have a full assessment before prescribing such things.
We would therefore respectively suggest patients register with and attend regularly a dentist who can provide appropriate routine and emergency advice. Dentists offer a 24 hrs per day emergency service. Out of normal surgery hours, this service is only for urgent dental treatment that cannot wait until the next working day to be treated, please ring 01942 481410.
For emergency dental treatment outside normal working hours, registered patients should contact their dental surgery. Most surgeries have an answering machine message referring you to out-of-hours information, if not please ring 111.
If you are not registered with a dentist, or are away from home, please ring NHS 111 on 111 for out-of-hours information.
