NHS Grampian Dental Services Updates

NHS Grampian Dental Services: COVID-19 Response – Notice for our public users

As the lockdown measures continue to ease in Scotland, dental practices may now see patients for routine non-aerosol care.

If you have a dental problem, you should in the first instance always contact your dental practice by telephone.

If you are required to attend for an appointment, it is essential to maintain physical distancing to ensure your continued safety. With this in mind most dental practices will only open a single treatment room for a limited number of patients per day. Each dental practice will have an approach to physical distancing that is appropriate to its own premises. This information will be provided to you should you require an appointment.

Outside normal working hours, if feel you have an URGENT dental need, please contact NHS 24 on 111.

If you are not registered with a dental practice or are calling from a care home, please contact the Dental Information & Advice Line (DIAL) on 0345 45 65 990 between 8.05am and 6pm or 111 out with those times.

You can find further advice regarding COVID-19 and what to do if you have symptoms on the NHS Inform Website.
