Emergency Dentist in Surrey Quays

If you’re in pain due to a dental problem, don’t suffer in silence. Dental issues won’t go away on their own and you need expert intervention to prevent the problem from getting worse. With an emergency dental appointment, we will diagnose the problem, provide pain relief and create a treatment plan to help get you back on track with your oral health.

Having a dental emergency?

Never ignore pain, swelling or other dental problems. Contact our office during office hours or call 111 to find out what steps you should take to address your dental emergency.

Emergency out of hours?

If you have a sudden emergency out of hours, please call the NHS 111 service. They will inform you of the steps you need to take, or offer home-care advice to help you until you can visit a dentist.

We recognise that dental emergencies can happen at any time. You don’t have to be registered with us to make the most of our emergency dental care services. 

If you're in pain due to a dental emergency, we encourage you to book an emergency dental appointment rather than waiting for the pain to pass. Dental pain doesn't go away on its own, and if it does, it often means that the issue is getting worse. At the first sign of dental pain, you should seek out an emergency dentist to diagnose the problem and create a treatment plan.

In many cases, you will need to book a follow-up appointment to arrange further care. The purpose of the emergency appointment is to prevent the issue from escalating, and to stop you from being in pain. We will then invite you for a follow-up appointment to address the underlying issue.

What counts as a dental emergency?

  • Uncontrolled bleeding from the mouth
  • Knocked out tooth
  • Sudden dental pain from an infection
  • Swelling in the mouth, face or jaw with dental pain
  • A chipped or cracked tooth with a sharp edge
  • Severe dental pain that cannot be controlled with pain killers

Your treatment journey

Every treatment journey is unique, but this is what you can expect when you start your dental treatment with us. We’ll keep you informed every step of the way.


Book an Appointment

You don't have to be registered with us to book an appointment with our team. If you're in pain due to a dental emergency, or if you have uncontrolled bleeding or swelling, call out practice to arrange an emergency appointment.



The purpose of an emergency dental appointment is to address the immediate cause of your pain. We will first diagnose the problem and then address the immediate issue. This could mean stopping the bleeding, covering a sharp chipped tooth, or prescribing antibiotics for an infection.



We'll invite you to book a follow-up appointment to complete your treatment. You might need restorative treatment such as a bridge or a crown if you have lost or chipped a tooth. If you have a tooth infection, you might need a root canal treatment.

Frequently asked questions

Learn more about your treatment. We’ve answered the most common patient questions below.

There are some steps you can take to address a dental emergency at home. Rising your mouth with warm salt water and using over the counter pain medication can help with toothache. Call the NHS 111 service to more at-home support.

If you are a nervous patient, we will do everything we can to put you at ease throughout your treatment. We recognise that a dental emergency can be more difficult to handle when you have a fear of the dentist. Our team will be there for you throughout your appointment to help put you at ease.

Some toothache can be managed at home until you can visit the dentist for a routine checkup. It would be an emergency if the pain is so severe it keeps you awake at night, if it cannot be controlled with over the counter pain medication, or if it is accompanied with swelling of the mouth, face or jaw.

In the case of a dental emergency, we can see patients that aren't registered with our practice. If you would like to continue treatment with us, you will need to register as a private or NHS patient.

Don’t just take our word for it.

  • Excellent Practice. Excellent doctors. Had an appointment with Mr Reuben. I'm terrified of being in the dentist's chair but he's one of the best at his work! Made me very comfortable. Also shout out to the practice manager, she really goes above and beyond for the patients and the practice itself.

  • Couldn't express enough gratitude towards the team here. I needed a safe pair of hands with my #8 Incisor, plus the heavy-woes close behind my dilemma. Dialling in to SDDP, I was received by Djoan, who was attentive and patient with my anxiety. She really was altruistic over the phone and put me at ease right away. Getting an appointment is never easy in the land of today but I felt reassured I was made a priority as best she could. Representing is Djoan and also Roshni, whom was totally ahead of the game and had forseen an appropriate approach to my following visits necessary to regain as much of my Hollywood E-lister smile as possible.Dr Safari answered my doubts with professionalism, great knowledge and clarity. Rebooking before leaving was painless as Djoan and Roshni had effortlessly lined up my appointment options so I only had to mutter, "that one". With Ivana managing, perpetual assurance is imminent.
