Dental Care Out Of Hours

Urgent treatment means treatment that the dentist considers necessary to relieve severe pain or prevent your oral condition deteriorating before you can make a normal appointment.

Anyone who does not have a regular dentist can access urgent NHS treatment, for example if you require treatment to relieve severe tooth ache or to prevent your oral condition deteriorating before you can make a normal appointment.

Emergency clinics are held at the City's Dental Access Centres located at Bilston Health Centre and the Phoenix Health Centre in Parkfields.  Please call 01902 444111 or 444112 before attending and if the problem is serious, we will make every attempt to offer you a same day appointment.

Out-of-hours emergency sessions are held on Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays from 9am until 11.30am.  For appointments during these times, call 07774 778597. 

You can call the out of hours team on 0793 1459707 between 6.30pm and 8.30pm, Monday to Friday for urgent treatment. 

If you already visit an NHS Dental Practice and require urgent treatment, telephone your practice for assistance.

How much will urgent treatment cost?  If you require urgent care but your urgent treatment needs more than one appointment to complete, you will only need to pay one charge of £16.20.
