Getting help from a dentist:

Dentists are open for urgent and routine treatments. If you’re registered with a dentist, you can contact the surgery by phone or in person.

If you’re not registered with a dentist, you can search for one here. Unfortunately, none of the 77 practices in Gloucestershire are taking on any new NHS patients at the present time. We are actively working with dentists, with help from patient representatives, to bring more services on board.

You might have to wait for an appointment if it’s not urgent.

If you need dental treatment in an emergency:

    • call your dentist: some surgeries offer appointments at short notice
    • if you do not have a dentist, find one using NHS 111

If you need to see a dentist out of hours:

    • call your dentist: their voicemail may advise where to get out-of-hours treatment
    • call NHS 111 to find an out-of-hours dental service near you

Do not contact a GP, as they will not be able to offer emergency or out-of-hours dental care.
If you’re waiting to see a dentist, NHS 111 can offer self-care advice.
How much will I be charged?

An urgent dental treatment will cost £23.80, unless you’re entitled to free NHS dental treatment.
If you’re asked to come back for further treatment, this will be considered to be a separate course of non-urgent treatment.
