Healthwatch Swindon has received a surge in calls, trying to locate Dental Practices which are able to take on NHS patients. Whilst we coordinate a project to obtain this information, for urgent care, you can contact the Dental Access Centres

The service aims to provide patients who are experiencing dental pain, an appointment within 48hours. Whilst every effort is made to provide an appointment locally, this does sometimes require travel in order to see a Dentist within 48 hours. 

To make an appointment please call the Dental Helpline on 0345 7581926 Monday-Friday 8.30am-5.00pm.

Out of hours, please call NHS 111.
