At Tavistock Drive Dental Care part of the receptionist’s job is answering the phone to people who are not our patients but wanting an emergency appointment.

Emergency appointments on the day are generally only available to people who already attend the practice.  It is a little optimistic to expect an immediate appointment, if you have not been to us before and are not registered with a dentist, due to the administration involved and the staff care and time given.

Obviously this is not uppermost in your mind when you are in pain and we do not like patients to suffer, the best place to go for emergency treatment is the NHS walk in centre in town.

If you are prepared to wait until we have a gap, we would charge £45 to be paid before the appointment, which covers your examination and extra time given to discuss the issue with the dentist and fill in medical forms.  Any x-rays or treatment would be extra, but you would receive a written estimate which we would ask you to sign if you want to go ahead with the recommended treatment.

If you have moved locality, register with a new dentist as soon as possible to give you peace of mind and book in for regular check ups so emergencies are as infrequent as possible.
