Emergency Dental Services
Please do not go to a hospital Emergency department or your GP with a dental problem. You can get emergency dental care on the NHS if you are registered with a dentist as an NHS patient. Telephone your dental practice for more information.
If you are not registered for NHS dental treatment and think you need emergency treatment outside normal working hours, you can contact the emergency dental service (see below).
If you live in East Sussex, contact your nearest clinic:
The Emergency Dental Service is only able to provide temporary dental treatment to assist you out of pain until you are able to seek care from a high street dentist.
The service operates a strictly by appointment only service, any patients that attend without a telephone appointment will not be seen, but asked to contact the clinic by telephone.
Appointment lines can become very busy at the start of the sessions, and you may receive an engaged tone, but please keep trying throughout the session.
Not registered with a dentist?
