We Are Open Again!

  • We are prioritising patients suffering pain, and have a large backlog of patients requiring treatment. However, we expect to be able to see patients soon for their regular check-ups.
  • You can speak to a receptionist on 01 730 812 022 between the hours of 9:00am and 5pm Monday to Friday.
  • Please do not arrive at the surgery without an appointment.
  • If you have a dental emergency outside of working hours please call 01 730 812 022 and our answerphone will give further information.
  • If you are suffering from severe uncontrollable pain, bleeding or swelling which is resulting in difficulty breathing, please go directly to your nearest accident and emergency hospital.
  • We have introduced strict procedures and enhanced PPE for the protection of our patients and staff. This will greatly lengthen appointment times so we ask you to be understanding. Please do not expect your treatment to necessarily be on the same day as your assessment.

    And from all of us at St.Oswald’s please stay safe

    Emergencies

    tooth-acheIf you think you need to be seen urgently please telephone the surgery on 01730 812022. We can arrange an emergency appointment or offer advice. Patients in pain should always be seen on the same day but not always by their regular dentist.

    A call to 01730 812022 outside surgery hours will be met by a recorded telephone message instructing existing patients how to obtain help or treatment.

    This message may vary during public holidays and at other times but the general guidance is as follows:

    • Regular patients who have a dental emergency should telephone our private emergency dental rota on 01 243 958 900. You may be requested to leave a message but your call should be returned as soon as a participating dentist comes on duty. Advice from this service is free. If you require out of hours treatment from a rota dentist, emergency treatment only will be offered. Several practices support this rota so you may have to travel a short distance. Please make sure you ask the treating dentist his call-out fee and his estimated treatment charges. The call-out fee will be typically £100 but no more than £180 and the treatment charges no more than £120.
    • An additional free service is available at St Richard’s Hospital Jubilee Clinic. This can be contacted by telephoning 01243 793 697.
    • If in doubt please call either of these numbers for free advice.
    • If you are suffering from severe uncontrollable pain, bleeding or swelling which is making breathing difficult, go directly to your nearest accident and emergency hospital.
    • If your symptoms are life-threatening dial 999.
