Emergency Dental Clinic

An Emergency Dental Clinic is available at the University Dental Hospital (UDH) and is for patients who are experiencing pain and require emergency dental care and who are not currently registered with a Dentist. The Emergency Dental Clinic can only accept patients that are not registered with a General Dental Practitioner. We recommend that patients who are registered with a Dentist contact their dentist for emergency dental treatment.

When is the Emergency Clinic available?

Monday – Friday:  9.00 am – 12.00 noon

Triage for this service starts at  8:45 am (Monday – Friday). Please note that this service is limited and patients are treated on a first come, first served basis, other than those presenting as a clinical priority. Therefore, it is possible that patients may not be accepted if the service has allocated all available emergency slots due to demand on the day.

You can access the hospital from 7:45 am and triage begins at 8:45am. (Triage is the process for determining the seriousness of a patient’s condition and thereby how quickly they need to be seen).

Every patient is assessed by a Dental Nurse to determine if they require emergency care.

What is the service for?

The treatment provided is intended to alleviate the pain. However, further treatment by a Dentist may be required.
