Out of hours Emergencies
We are members of a small private rota. If you have an urgent dental problem you may contact the duty dentist.
This service is open only to registered private patients of this practice, including Denplan. A dentist is on call until 9pm Monday to Friday and from 9.00am to 5pm at weekends and bank holidays. If the dentist needs to open the surgery out of hours there will be a callout charge. Denplan patients pay the first £20.00.
In an emergency, please phone our normal practice number, 0118 986 8167, and the message will give you a number to phone. The dentist will then be able to advise you or arrange to see you if necessary. Please be aware it may take up to an hour for the dentist to get back to you.
NHS patients are now the responsibility of the local health authority. Please call the local health authority emergency service on 111. Private patients may also use this service if they prefer.
