Update – June 2023

Access to dental services has changed as part of a national NHS Wales programme to ensure dental care is accessible to everyone in Wales:

- NHS dental practices across north Wales are required to prioritise patient access to dental care and treatment on the basis of clinical need and risk.
- Patient access to routine dental services and non-urgent treatment continue to be limited.
- When check-up appointments become available, your dentist will contact you.
- There is no longer any 'patient registration' and patients can seek treatment at any NHS practice. Find a dental surgery that's convenient for you, whether it's near your home or work and phone them to see if there are any appointments available.
- Dental surgeries will not always have the capacity to take on new NHS patients. You may have to join a waiting list or look for a different dentist who is taking on new NHS patients.

Thank you for your patience and understanding of the current situation.
If you require urgent dental care, you should contact your dentist during their usual opening hours. Information about who you should contact outside of normal hours or if you don't have a dentist, can be found under our Urgent Dental Services
