Everyone should be registered with a dentist, enabling them to access good-quality NHS dental services whether it be for a routine check-up or in an emergency.
If you do not have a regular dental practice or are new to the area, you can search for an NHS dentist near you.
Dental emergency and out-of-hours care
If you think you need urgent care, contact your usual dentist as some practices offer emergency dental slots and will provide care if clinically necessary.
