If a patient requires urgent dental care, they should go through NHS 111 to seek care.

NHS 111 will pass them on to the Dental Triage team, who will provide the appropriate advice and offer an appointment if they meet the urgent acceptance criteria.

There is no direct line for patients into Dental Triage as NHS 111 has to collect the patient demographics.

Patients can choose to go to any site but Dental Triage will offer the closest ones to the address the patient provides.


Eligibility criteria

Inclusions

  • residents requiring urgent dental care

Exclusions

  • not for non-urgent dental care

How to refer

Self-referral

If a mainstream patient presents at a GP surgery with dental pain they should be advised to contact NHS 111 themselves.

(A special care or domiciliary patient should be directed straight to the Community Dental Services across London).
