Community Dental Service 

Working closely with general dental practitioners, we aim to provide high quality, accessible dental care to the people of Wiltshire and Swindon.

Through Dental Access Centres, we provide access to NHS dentistry, with an emphasis on rapid access for people with urgent dental pain, who are unable to register with an NHS dentist.  This service can also offer urgent pain appointments to visitors to the county.

Our Special Care Dental Service provides dental care for people, who because of their additional needs are unable to access care in General Dental Services.

Urgent dental care for all residents of Wiltshire and Swindon at weekends and Bank Holidays is also provided by the service.

You can also contact the Wiltshire Dental Helpline to help you access information about local dental practices who have appointments available if you're in need of urgent dental treatment. 

The Oral Health Promotion Team develops and delivers projects aimed at improving the dental health of the local population.

All treatment is provided under the NHS dental regulations and charges are applicable to fee paying patients.
