Emergency dentists in Leeds

If you need dental treatment in an emergency

  • call your dentist: some practices offer appointments at short notice
  • if you don't have a dentist, find one using NHS 111
  • look up urgent care services that provide dental treatment

If you need to see a dentist out of hours

  • call your dentist: their answerphone may advise where to get out-of-hours treatment
  • call NHS 111 to find an out-of-hours dental service near you

Don't contact your GP, as they won't be able to offer emergency or out-of-hours dental care.

If you're in pain while waiting to see a dentist, take painkillers. NHS 111 can also offer other self care advice. 

Walk-in Clinic

The Leeds Dental Institute provides a student-led, walk in clinic. The clinic runs twice a day Monday to Friday where times may vary due to service needs. Admittance to the clinic may be refused if you do not meet certain criteria. The clinic is not an NHS commissioned emergency clinic and it only operates during the term times of the University of Leeds.

The main reception operates between 08:45 and 17:00. The clinic works on a first come, first served basis, with the exception of dental trauma or significant facial swellings. It is a sit and wait clinic and treatment cannot be guaranteed at any point. As a student training facility, where staffing is not available it is possible this service will not run at all.
