If you’re experiencing pain or discomfort in your teeth, mouth or jaw, or if you have concerns about your oral health, you should see a dentist. Everyone experiences issues with their oral health at some point. Dental complaints such as abscesses, toothache or tooth decay can cause great discomfort but can often be straightforward to solve.

If you’re anxious about visiting the dentist or have a phobia, we can help. Our staff receive special training on how to support nervous patients, and some practices offer conscious sedation.

Most of our practices offer emergency appointments. If you need help, find a practice near you and get in touch.
