Emergency Contact Details

Covid-19 – update

During this time the practice may be closed and reception unattended. If you need urgent advice please leave a message on the Practice Telephone Answer Service 01243-775545. Reception monitor this every working day and will return your call as soon as possible.

PLEASE NOTE – The practice is at full capacity with registered patients at present. Occasional places may be available to become a registered private patient only, with no NHS spaces available for the foreseeable future. Please call for details.

There is no capacity for any non-registered patient emergency treatment. Please use Health Authority services for non-registered patients or try your previously registered dentist. We hope this situation will only persist whilst Covid puts extra strain on resources.

Emergency Dental Services – Registered Patients Only:

In Office hours

If you have pain or toothache during surgery hours, please telephone and every effort will be made to see you that day. We normally set aside half an hour just before lunch specifically to see emergency patients so please call early to avoid the possibility of a longer wait. On normal working days (not weekends or Bank Holidays) our NHS Buddy practice links to the Emergency Rota number 01243-958900 for in-hours treatment if we are closed, but only for registered NHS patients of this practice.

Practice Telephone No: 01243 775545

Out of Hours – Private Service 

If you have a dental emergency or are in urgent need of advice outside surgery hours, telephone our emergency number. If you need to see a dentist, arrangements will be made, although not necessarily at this practice. Please note that there is a £180 call out fee (£200 on Christmas day New year and Easter Bank Holidays) and a £60 minimum treatment fee for all patients using this emergency service. Telephone advice is free apart from call charges.
