If you need to find a dentist in Cornwall for emergency dental care the information below will help you access support.

As a result of the restrictions in place to help stop the spread of Coronavirus, all non-urgent dental activity has stopped.

Emergency care is still available though with NHS England having put in place a network of emergency centres. Across every NHS region local Urgent Dental Care (UDC) systems are being created to provide care for people with urgent and emergency dental problems.

If you have an urgent or emergency dental condition please do not attend any clinics as you will need to be triaged first.
