The NHS will provide any treatment that you need to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy and free of pain.

Decisions about which treatment is appropriate for you will be based upon a clinical assessment and clinical judgement. Your NHS dentist will offer you a treatment option that is clinically appropriate.

You can register with any dental practice that is convenient for you as they are not bound to catchment areas. If you are not registered with a dentist but would like to, you can call the Stockport dental helpline on 0161 476 9649 and you will be given help.

If you have an urgent dental problem and your usual dentist is closed you can call the Stockport out of hours dental emergency line on 0161 337 2246.
