Dental Problems

Please be aware that we are unable to treat any dental problems. We are advising patients to see a dentist.

Doctors are neither qualified nor trained to treat dental problems and therefore are not covered by medical insurance in the event of an adverse outcome that might lead to a negligence claim.

If you already have a dentist, ring the dentist and if your dentist is not available, they will provide you with an emergency contact.  If your dentist is closed, you can ring 111 to get help with an out of hours dentist or to get advice.
