Dental Problems

Upper Eden Medical Practice does not treat Dental problems.

If you are registered with a dental practice you must contact your practice directly and they are obliged to offer you an emergency appointment within 48 hours.

If you are on holiday or not registered with a dentist you will need to ring:

01228 603 900

Monday – Friday: 9am – 9pm
Saturday – Sunday: 9am – 12noon & 6pm – 9pm.

You may need to leave a message and they will call you back.

We’re advised not to treat dental problems and to signpost the patient to the most appropriate service.

In the first instance patients must ring the dentist that they are registered with, who are obliged to offer them an emergency appointment within 24 hours. All dental practices reserve daily emergency appointments specifically for this purpose.

If the patient is on holiday, if they are not registered with a dentist or if the emergency is out of hours, the patient needs to call Dental Direct on 01228 603900. Dental Direct will carry out a phone triage assessment and if deemed appropriate, they will arrange for an appointment.
