Dental practices are beginning to reopen. However, to ensure patient safety and observe social distancing, services may be operating differently to usual.
In the first instance you should telephone your normal practice for advice, before attending in person without an appointment.
As part of the measures being taken to ensure your safety and that of the dental team, the treatments available may differ from practice to practice, depending on the staff and equipment available at the time. Your dentist will make arrangements to see you, or refer you to an urgent care dental service.
If you think you need urgent dental treatment and are unable to contact your own dentist, you should use the NHS 111 online service/call 111. Alternatively you can contact Greater Manchester Urgent Dental Service on 0333 332 3800.
