Dental practices are particularly impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Most dental procedures are aerosol-generating, which means they release airborne particles which can result in the spread of infection.
All dental practices have been told to stop providing these procedures during the pandemic. If you experience a dental problem , please:
Call the dentist first.
The dentist or staff in the dental practice will ask you some questions over the phone to assess your condition. Some of these questions may include if you have a temperature or a cough.
If appropriate, you may receive a call back from a dentist, be given relevant advice, issued with a prescription or asked to come into the practice.
If you have been tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19) or have symptoms such as a high temperature and a new, continuous cough, and you need dental treatment, please call your dentist first.
Urgent Dental Care clinics
This service is for people with an urgent dental need such as significant oral swellings, dental trauma and uncontrolled bleeding following extraction. These clinics will also treat Coronavirus (COVID-19) patients and those patients who have no symptoms and need urgent dental care.
Patients must be referred by their dentist. If you have an urgent or emergency dental problem:
Call your dentist first. If you are not registered with a dentist, call a dentist for advice.
Your dentist will speak to you over the phone and refer you to the emergency dental clinic if required.
