Tooth 4 - Visiting the dentist regularly
It is important whether you are a child or adult to visit the dentist regularly.
You can register for an NHS dentist at anytime and this may be by contacting NHS dentists near you to see if they have room to take on new patients.
The above link takes you to the NHS choices website for NHS charges. (New charges will come into effect on the 1st April)
If you click on the link find a dentist it gives you a list of dentists and shows the ones accepting NHS patients.
Under the useful links section on the right hand side if you click on the Help with dental costs link it shows you a list of exemptions for dental treatment.
If you don’t have a dentist and need emergency care you can contact Dental Direct on 01228 603900 and leave a message and one of the triage nurses will call you back and arrange an appointment.
