Urgent Dental Care

Urgent dental care for patients in Merseyside is accessed via the Dental Helpline on 0161 476 9651 from 9am to 9.30pm every day, including weekends and Bank Holidays.

The service is provided according to strict clinical criteria, and when you call you’ll be assessed by a member of the clinical team to make sure your problem comes under either:

       Trauma - this is usually caused by a blow to the face, a lost filling is not classed as trauma

       Swelling of the face

       Bleeding - uncontrolled, such as after an extraction

       Pain that can’t be controlled by pain relief medicines

If you’re given an appointment and your problem doesn’t fit any of the above, you’ll still have to pay the NHS fee but may only receive advice and not treatment.
