Out of Hours Emergency Dental Care, Members or Private
In addition to the NHS service (see Out of hours NHS-link) Members and Private patients can try our Dentists at Home. If available they can provide Advice and, if required, may be able to provide Treatment.
This service is not guaranteed to be available as they may not be contactable, or unable to attend the practice.
A fee is payable for opening the practice in an emergency, this is £135 during the week and £180 weekends and Bank Holiudays. Further fees may be payable for Emergency Temporary Treatment provided.
Patients with our insurance can claim this back, less the excess of £25. Those with access to our Wordwide Dental Emergency Assistance Scheme* may be paid benefits to cover all the fees.

*The Worldwide Dental Emergency Assistance Scheme is a scheme established to offer support and assistance to dental plan patients who request treatment following a dental trauma and/or dental emergency or oral cancer. The Scheme responds to requests for assistance on a wholly discretionary basis. This means that, whilst the Scheme aims to provide benefits in most cases, it has no obligation to provide any benefit unless it first decides (in its sole and absolute discretion) that it should provide a benefit. There are some circumstances in which the Scheme is not designed to help and these are explained in more detail in the Scheme Handbook. Each request will be looked at individually to assess the request for benefit. Certain restrictions and limitations may apply in the event that the request is accepted and it is possible that the Scheme will decide to provide no benefit.
