Out of Hours Emergency Dental Treatment

Information during the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

As a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Emergency Dental Clinics have been replaced by Urgent Dental Care Clinics (UDCC).

These UDCCs continue to operate at weekends however you must be referred by a dentist.

If you experience an emergency or urgent dental condition you should contact your own dentist in the first instance including at weekends and bank holidays.

If you are not registered with a dentist, then you should contact a local dentist and explain the issue you are experiencing.  You may need to contact a number of practices before finding one with sufficient capacity to see you.

You can also ask if remote management, referral to a UDCC, or referral to the Urgent Student Clinic at the School of Dentistry may be appropriate.
