Dental Emergencies

Urgent dental services when your dentist is closed

The Out of Hours service is available to provide urgent dental care for patients without a regular dentist or for all patients when dental practices are closed (evenings, weekends and Bank Holidays).

This service is available to all Oxfordshire residents (including temporary residents and visitors). Callers will be phoned back for triage and provided with either advice or offered appointments for emergency treatment. This service is for people with urgent or emergency needs only and therefore does not provide routine care or repeat appointments.

For patients without a regular dentist who have a dental emergency during practice opening hours, please contact the NHS Oxfordshire Dental Helpline for details of NHS dental practices offering emergency appointments: telephone 01865 337267 or 08000 113 824.
