Dentistry

Dental problems are NOT managed at your doctor's surgery.  During normal hours, contact your normal dentist. 

If you do not have a registered dentist, you can contact:

The Siskin Dental Centre

Norwich Community Hospital

Bowthorpe Road

NORWICH

NR2 3TU  (01603 272350)

 

Out-of-hours dental care

If you have a problem outside normal practice hours or you're in pain, you can first try helping yourself by taking painkillers. If you feel the problem can wait until normal practice hours, you can call NHS 111 for self care advice. 

Emergency dental care

If your problem is more urgent, you can access out-of-hours dental services in your area by calling:

  • your dentist, who should have an answerphone message with details of how to access treatment out of hours  
  • NHS 111

Go to the accident and emergency (A&E) department of your local hospital if you:

  • are in severe pain that is not helped by painkillers
  • are bleeding a lot and it won't stop
  • trauma of the face, mouth or teeth after a recent accident or injury

NHS out-of-hours or emergency dental care

NHS dental care is available in an emergency if it is clinically necessary, whether or not you have a regular dentist.

Emergency and out-of-hours NHS dental care will cost you £19.70. After this you may have to make another appointment for separate non-urgent treatment, where you will have to pay a second charge in the relevant treatment band.
