Dental problems should be dealt with by the patient's own dental practice.  If a patient is not registered with a dental practice, they should call 111 who will find them a dental practice that can see them (they may have to travel out of area).

Unfortunately, GP practices cannot see a patient just because they say they cannot travel to a dentist – they need to contact 111 who can help.



Unfortunately, GP practices cannot see a patient for any of the following problems:

  • Infection/abcess
  • Toothache
  • Antibiotics for a dental issue
  • Pain relief for a dental issue
  • Gum pain

If the patient is experiencing facial swelling, please encourage them to visit A&E.



Patients should contact their own dental practice, call 111 or visit NHS Choices www.nhs.uk.
