How can I access an NHS Dentist in an emergency or out of hours?

If you have a dentist:  Contact the practice directly for advice.  If the practice is closed an answering machine message will provide details of how to access treatment urgent care.

If you do not have a dentist:  Those who do not have a regular dentist that they routinely visit there is a dedicated urgent dental service in Walsall.  The Dental Access Centre will try and see people with dental pain or swelling as soon as possible, normally on the same day and provides urgent dental treatment only

The Dental Access Centre based at Blakenall Village Centre, Bloxwich, WS3 1LZ operates an urgent dental service including the weekend and bank holidays (this includes Christmas day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day).  The standard NHS emergency fee of £21.60 applies unless you are entitled to free NHS dental treatment.Call NHS 111 for more advice and times

Dont contact your GP, as they won't be able to offer emergency or out-of-hours dental care.

If you are in pain while waiting to see a dentist, take painkillers.  NHS 111 can also offer other self care advice.
