NHS dental care

If you or a family member need NHS dental care, you should contact a dental practice directly

Find your nearest NHS dentist on the national NHS website.

Not all dentists will be open to new patients at the moment.

You don’t have to register at the dental practice nearest where you live – you might find it more convenient to register with a dentist close to where you work instead.

If you need dental treatment in an emergency, call a dentist as their voicemail may advise where to get out-of-hours treatment. You can also call NHS 111 to find an out-of-hours dental service near you.
