About us

The University of Bristol Dental Hospital is a Centre of Excellence providing routine and specialist clinical dental services for the South West. 

Emergency Dental Service

If you already see a dentist, please contact your own dental practice for emergency advice or possible treatment. If you do not currently have a dentist and you require emergency treatment during the daytime or information on accessing NHS dental care, please call NHS 111. Emergency dental care can be accessed by patients who are not registered with a dentist via the Primary Care Unit at the Dental Hospital, Monday-Friday, 9am-12pm (doors open at 8am). This service is provided and supervised by dental students on a predominantly first come first served basis.

South Bristol Community Hospital

If you live in the region of South Bristol Community Hospital and do not have a dentist but require routine dental treatment, for example check-ups, fillings, oral-hygiene advice including scale and polish, extractions and dentures then please ring us on 0117 342 9792 or 0117 342 9794 to make an appointment.

We also accept referrals from GPs, dentists and other health care professionals. This service is free of charge and treatment is provided by a dedicated team of staff and students from the School of Oral & Dental Sciences, one of the top dental schools in the UK. All student treatment is closely supervised by qualified clinical staff.

This service operates from 9am - 5pm Monday to Friday, 52 weeks of the year. Not including bank holidays.
