Help when you need it most
Our emergency advice service is available evenings and between the hours of 10am and 4pm at weekends and designed to relieve a patient’s discomfort until the problem can be properly addressed.
Often, by calling and speaking to the on-call dentist, we’ll be able to give you advice that avoids you having to see us.
Frequently, dental pain can be alleviated with Ibuprofen or paracetamol, for example, and we advise you trying taking these medications first if you are able to.
