Emergency Dental Service

Please be aware
The following changes to dental services have been made as part of our plans to manage the COVID-19 outbreak:
    - ALL routine dental appointments cancelled
    - ALL evening emergency clinics cancelled
    - Weekend walk in clinics on Sundays cancelled
We have a limited number of appointments available for daytime and weekend emergency dental clinics. These are by appointment only. If you are currently registered with a dental practice, please contact them in the first instance as they may be able to offer you an emergency appointment. If your registered practice is closed or you are not registered then please call NHS 111 Wales on 0845 46 47. Please note, we are receiving high demand for weekend appointments - where possible please call in the week and book weekday appointments.        

Your local pharmacy may be able to help with over-the-counter remedies for dental pain. Please visit our self care page

For details on how to access the appointment only clinics, please contact NHS 111 Wales or NHS Direct Wales 0845 46 47 

Please be advised that if you present at an appointment-only clinic without an appointment you may be turned away as all appointments are generally filled.

During the year, especially holiday periods, our clinics can be especially busy. PRIORITY IS ALWAYS GIVEN TO CHILDREN, FRAIL OR ELDERLY PATIENTS OR THOSE WITH SEVERE FACIAL SWELLING. Toothache, no matter how painful, is not classed as a dental emergency. 

Outside of normal hours, patients who are currently receiving a course of treatment through a General Dental Practitioner should contact their own surgery to listen to an answer phone message for details of out of hours arrangements. You may be asked to contact NHS Direct Wales.

Unless you are exempt from NHS dental charges and can provide proof, you are required to pay a small fee for your treatment. Preferred payment method is debit card, although cash or cheques are accepted too.
