Acute dental centre

Adult Acute Dental Care based at Guy’s Hospital

Emergency dental treatment

Please go to your dentist first if possible.

The acute dental care (ADC) department at Guy's Hospital is available Monday to Friday for adult emergency conditions, such as dental infection, bleeding and trauma.

To access this service please call NHS 111. You will be assessed by a dental nurse and offered an appointment if needed.

We can only see a limited number of patients per day. Those who turn up without an appointment from NHS 111 will be turned away.

If you are calling NHS 111 from outside of London, you will not be offered an appointment at Guy's Hospital.

Even if you are calling from London, you may be offered an appointment at a different urgent dental care hub, closer to where you live.

The children's dental emergency clinic is located at the Dental Centre at St Thomas' Hospital. To access this service please call NHS 111.

An NHS nurse will assess your child over the phone, and if appropriate, will book them to be seen.

We have a limited number of appointments each day. The NHS 111 service may book you into an urgent dental care centre closer to you.
