Our dental department and the dental service at King's College Hospital provide a walk-in emergency service. This is for children with pain or infection, bleeding from the mouth or those who have injured their teeth (eg trauma) and require urgent care.
- The Dental Centre, St Thomas' Hospital: 9am-11.30am, Monday-Friday (except public holidays)
- King's College Hospital: 8.45am-11am and 2pm-3.30pm
How to access the service
If your child has a dental emergency, seek advice from your dentist in the first instance.
Your child may not be seen if it is not deemed to be an emergency.
Your child’s dentist must provide you a written referral letter to enable our team to determine if your child would be eligible for care by our emergency service.
