Dental emergencies

Please note that out-of-hours dental services will be widely available across London over the festive period at weekends and Bank Holidays. 

Patients experiencing dental pain are advised to call NHS 111 in the first instance, who will transfer the call to Londonwide Dental Nurse Triage service.  A dental nurse will ring the patient back and, if deemed appropriate, the patient will be referred to a dentist for urgent dental treatment. 

In most cases this will be to a dental practice close to where the patient lives although, in some circumstances, patients may need to travel further depending on their location and what time of the day or night they ring.
