Dental issues

Patients often attend GP practices because they have a dental problem, but it’s important to know that GPs are not able to fully assess and treat dental problems.

Treating patients with dental problems is not a GP responsibility, even if a patient is not registered with a dentist because:

1. GPs are not trained to deal with dental issues, and
2. Dental treatment is not part of the National GP contract

If you have an issue with a toothache or other dental issue you are advised to contact a local dentist or access 111 if their usual dental surgery is closed or they are not registered with a dentist.

There is also an Urgent Dental Care service that patients can access;

Urgent Care Dental Services in and out of hours. Allocation to this service is available through the Lancashire Dental Helpline by calling 0300 1234 010.

If you have trauma, uncontrollable bleeding, or swelling that is affecting your breathing then please attend your local A&E.
