How to Access Dental Services

In order to receive the full range of dental treatment and care, you should be registered with a dentist. 

When you register with a dentist you’ll be registered for life, unless you or your dentist requests your registration to be withdrawn.

If you attend another dentist for treatment and don’t tell them you’re registered elsewhere, your registration will automatically transfer to that dentist.

Please find out more at: Find a Dentist.

Emergency Dental Care

If you are not registered with a dentist and are experiencing dental pain, please contact the Dental Helpline on 01387 245532.
