Dental (emergency)

NHS logoOur out of hour's emergency dental service is known as DentaLine and is for dental emergencies and urgent symptoms during evenings, weekends or bank holidays. To contact the service you should call on 01634 890300 for an assessment, advice and to arrange an appointment for that evening if necessary. Patients should contact their own dentist for dental emergencies during practice opening hours.

Our call centre is open: Monday to Sunday From 6-10.55pm and Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays from 8.30am-1.25pm

If you meet our acceptance criteria an appointment may be offered, but if daytime care is felt to be more appropriate, you will be advised. Treatment provided by DentaLine prevents deterioration in a patient's oral health or will give temporary control of pain. After treatment, patients are still required to return to their own dentist, or join the list of a dental practice, for a new course of treatment to permanently resolve their dental need. Our service accommodates patients who have the following dental symptoms:

  • haemorrhaging (bleeding from the mouth);
  • trauma - Following a recent accident or injury;
  • severe facial swelling (affecting the airway or eye);
  • sudden onset of acute pain not relieved by over-the counter pain killers.
