Find a dentist

The Community Dental Service (CDS) provides treatment and care for individuals who have special requirements that cannot be met by general dental practice. It also offers an in-reach general anaesthetics service for tooth extraction for young children or patients with complex needs.

Urgent dental care is available in Oldham, providing urgent treatment for people who are unable to access a general practitioner in-hours. A Minor Oral Surgery service is also available in Bury. 

Community Dental Service
Patients are referred to the Community Dental Service by letter from their own dentist, or by another healthcare professional such as a GP, health visitor or school nurse. When the referral is received, an acknowledgement letter is sent out and an appointment will be made as soon as one becomes available.

Urgent dental care
Appointments for the Dental Emergency Service at Oldham Integrated Care Centre, are allocated on a daily basis. Patients are advised to contact their local centre at the earliest opportunity on the day they require treatment. This is not a drop-in service. The service operates through an appointment system, but will try to be flexible and accommodate requests outside of the booking process where possible. Treatment is for urgent complaints only and is provided under NHS regulations.

Patient charges
It is the patient’s responsibility to ensure that they either pay for their dental treatment or provide the necessary documents stating their exemption from charges. Details of fees chargeable and relevant exemptions can be provided and discussed with you.
