Emergency dental service

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 suffered dentoalveolar injury and require urgent care.

Opening times

  • 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

You child’s dentist must provide you a written referral letter to enable our team to determine if they are eligible for care in our emergency service.
