Dental issues are not General Practice

Your GP surgery does not contain clinicians trained to deal with dental issues.

Antibiotics should not be used to treat dental pain unless advised and prescribed by a dentist as they risk masking an issue which can then get worse needing more invasive treatment down the line.

If you have dental/jaw pain which a dentist has seen and feels needs our input then you should request an appointment.

Non-urgent advice: Find an NHS Dentist

The Wessex Dental Advisory Service is a useful local resource for finding routine or emergency dental input.

Alternatively the NHS website has a page detailing how to find a dentist.
