Looking for an emergency dentist?

Toothache? Broken Filling? You don't need to be a regular patient to use our dental emergency service. If you do not have a regular dentist or your own dentist is too busy to see you we can help. It doesn't matter if you haven't seen a dentist for years or you are just on holiday. It doesn't matter if you are nervous or anxious; just let us know when you call and we will do everything we can to make treating your dental problem a comfortable and reassuring experience.

We know many people worry about an unexpected bill when they visit the dentist for the first time. That's why we keep things simple: our emergency clinic has a fixed fee of £95 which includes any treatment and medication necessary to get you comfortable. We can advise you of any further treatment needed and you can complete this with us if you wish. If you already have dentist we can forward on details of treatment provided and any X-rays

Please phone the practice – on 01904 764 539 – and we will arrange to see you as soon as possible.

Outside surgery hours

We are members of a dental rota* to provide emergency care to our existing patients only. Please telephone the practice on 01904 764 539 and listen to the answerphone for details.

Also, for our Denplan patients, Denplan is able to offer help, and, in some cases, access to an alternative Denplan dentist: for example, Denplan patients are covered for emergency care if more than 40 miles from home, or abroad.

Please telephone the Denplan helpline (on the number below) for advice, or to help find a dentist if you are more than 40 miles from home.
Alternatively, see Denplan's guidance on what to do in a dental emergency.
