OUT OF HOURS DENTIST
If you need dental treatment in an emergency:
  • call your dentist: some practices offer appointments at short notice
  • if you don’t have a dentist, find one using NHS 111
  • look up urgent care services that provide dental treatment

If you need to see a dentist out of hours:

  • call your dentist: their answerphone may advise where to get out-of-hours treatment
  • call NHS 111 to find an out-of-hours dental service near you

Don’t contact your GP, as they won’t be able to offer emergency or out-of-hours dental care.

If you’re in pain while waiting to see a dentist, take painkillers. NHS 111 can also offer other self care advice.

Life-threatening emergencies
Call 999 in a medical emergency – when someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk. Medical emergencies can include:

Call 999 immediately if you or someone else is having a heart attack or stroke. Every second counts with these conditions. Also call 999 if you think someone has had a major trauma. Major trauma is often the result of a serious road traffic accident, a stabbing, a shooting, a fall from height, or a serious head injuryFind out more about major trauma services.
