We continue to liaise with the LDC Confederation regarding NHS dental care in London. Dental practice re- opened on 8 June 2020. Patients who need help from a dentist are being urged not to visit their practice unless advised to do so, and to contact their dental practice by phone or by email where they will be triaged and given advice or offered an appointment if appropriate. Dental practices are operating a remote first process like general practice, click here for more details.
For patients who require urgent dental care but are unable to contact their normal dentist, they should be directed to NHS 111 to find an alternative dental provider. There are currently a number of facilities offering emergency dental treatment across London, comprising dental hospitals, community dental service providers and general dental practitioners.
