There are a number of options available to you in an emergency.
A dental condition is only considered to be an emergency if any of the following symptoms are present:
· Bleeding (not bleeding due to normal brushing)
· Severe pain
If you do not have any of the above, your condition does not constitute an emergency.
If you are registered as an NHS patient with us and have already attended an appointment at the practice, please call us to discuss your condition and if necessary we will make an appointment for you to be seen within 48 hours. The usual NHS charges will apply for this appointment.
If you are not registered with us or have given us your details but have yet to attend for your first appointment, please call your local dental access centre to arrange for an emergency appointment. The nearest dental access centre to our practice is located in Midsomer Norton and they can be contacted on 01761 409810 or you can contact NHS Direct on 0845 4647.
Alternatively, we may be able to offer you an emergency appointment as a Private patient. There is an assessment charge for this service and any treatment will be at additional cost. Please contact the practice for further details.
If you have an urgent condition that does not constitute an emergency, we may be able to see you for a Private Urgent appointment. Conditions such as a chipped tooth, lost crown or filling, broken dentures may fall into this category.
Please contact NHS Direct on 0845 4647 if you have an emergency outside of surgery hours.
