Please note: Due to Covid-19, patients cannot attend the School of Dentistry without an agreed appointment. The Relief of Dental Pain Clinic that was in Belfast City Hospital is closed at present. Please do not walk in to either of these departments as you will not be treated.
All patients with urgent or emergency dental conditions should contact their local dentist by telephone. The dentist will provide you with advice and access to the appropriate dental service.
Dental practices are required to provide an out-of-hours telephone number where you can speak to a dentist within a reasonable period. This information is normally available on the answering machine of the dental practice.
You can ring your local dentist even if you are not registered with that practice.
Only patients who meet these criteria should attend an Emergency Department:
- oral bleeding that the patient or carer is unable to control with self-care measures
- mouth or face swelling that gets worse over a period of a few hours
- mouth or face swelling that affects the ability to swallow or open the mouth
- serious dental trauma – physical injury to the mouth
