If you need dental treatment in an emergency
If you need to see a dentist out of hours
Don't contact your GP, as they won't be able to offer emergency or out-of-hours dental care.
If you're in pain while waiting to see a dentist, take painkillers. NHS 111 can also offer other self care advice.
How much will I be charged?
An urgent dental treatment will cost £20.60 – see NHS dental charges explained.
If you're entitled to free NHS dental care, you should be able to claim back the cost of any treatment.
Ensure you keep all receipts. For more information, see Help with dental costs.
If you're asked to come back for further treatment, this will be considered to be a separate course of non-urgent treatment.
You'll have to pay the relevant charge for the new course of treatment.
Ask the dentist what the treatment will cost or whether you can have a treatment plan.
When to go to hospital
Only go to accident and emergency (A&E) in serious circumstances, such as:
If you're not sure whether you should go to A&E, contact NHS 111, who will be able to advise you. Find out when to dial 999.
We try our best to book any emergency patient on the same day. Please call us early in the morning for the best chance to get an appointment. Call 01603427500 to find out more on how to book.

I have been a patient here for 10 years and regretfully leaving due to relocation across the border to Suffolk. During this time I have received excellent treatment from the dentist, their assistant, reception staff and the hygenist and their assistant. I have had some major dental work undertaken and given that I was cautious of dentists given previous experience, I can't recommend Friends Dental practice enough. I have recommended the practice to others on many occasions. Whilst I am pleased to be relocating to Suffolk, I am sad to be losing such a good dentist! But hey, if I can't find another good dentist then I will be back every six months!

I had to have a lot of work done to my teeth, as 39 years since I last visited a dentist. Everyone were so kind and helpful. I now have a good smile again and eating is so much better . Brilliant service in every respect, thank you so much.
Very welcoming friendly & pleasant staff on arrival & check in at reception. The Dentist & assistant were very welcoming in the surgery and worked well together. Explained everything to me, & my options & prices of treatment. Didn't feel pressured at all, as I have previously been elsewhere. Treatment I received was faultless, both in the surgery & at reception & everything completed smoothly & confidently. Highly recommended & very pleased I changed practice.
Always had a phobia of the dentist since school. But have been going to
Friends dental for 4 years and always see the same smiling dentist. Not like a previous dentists when there was a different dentist every 6 months.
Now I walk into the surgery with confidence and I even get a free sample of toothpaste for being a good boy!
