Dentists provide regular check ups on your teeth and gums.

Part of their work involves teaching people to look after their teeth and gums in order to prevent problems. It also includes restoration of teeth damaged or lost by decay, trauma or other reasons, using a wide variety of techniques and materials.
Dental practices can take private and NHS patients, and most practices take a mixture of both. It is important to ring your Dentist to confirm the services that they provide and to make appointments.

To find your nearest dentist click here and enter your postcode.

There is a helpline to make finding a NHS dentist easier.  If you call 02380 338336, the hotline can help identify your nearest NHS dentist
