Currently all of our Community Dental Clinics are now closed due to the COVID 19 pandemic. 

You can call us for advice on urgent dental problems on 01634 334660 Mon- Fri 9:00-16:00 and where appropriate a telephone consultation will be arranged to offer advice, analgesia or antibiotics (where appropriate). 

For out of hours urgent dental problems please call Dentaline on 01634 890300 who are also offering telephone consultations for those whose urgent conditions cannot wait until their own dentist is available to call.

Please note that all NHS dental practices are currently offering telephone consultation for urgent dental problems for their own and new patients.

Most people can be treated by a local general dental practitioner (GDP); NHS Choices lists 39 dentists within five miles of Medway.

Some people have special physical, mental or social needs which require the support of a specialist community dental service; that’s what we provide. You can access this service by being referred through a GP or other healthcare professional.

Normal NHS dental charges apply and payment must be made before seeing the dentist, unless you are exempt from payment. Current NHS charges are Band 1 £22.70, Band 2 £62.10, Band 3  £269.30 and emergency £22.70 depending on what treatment you may need.

Oral Health Promotion

The role of the Community Dental Service, Oral Health Promotion Team, is to support and connect with the community encouraging good Oral Health. We work in Partnership with MCH Child and Adult services, networking to form close links with outside providers.
