If you think you need urgent dental treatment or have a concern about your oral health, you should phone your general dental practice for advice. You are likely to be offered a remote video or telephone consultation. If your dentist assesses you as needing a face-to-face consultation for urgent dental treatment and is unable to undertake this at their practice, you may be referred to an urgent dental care centre. Alternatively, if you cannot contact your dentist use the NHS 111 online service or call 111.
