Dental Helpline logo with the contact number 0845 063 1188

Our Dental Helpline, staffed by fully trained oral health experts and dental nurses, has taken more than 350,000 calls since its formation a little over a decade ago.

We can help you on subjects such as dental terms and treatment procedures, oral hygiene, current UK legislation and regulations, NHS and private dental charges, complaints procedures, and referrals to other organisations.

Unfortunately, we cannot recommend specific dentists, dispute the recommendations of a dentist, represent you in disputes or deal with complaints on your behalf. Information is provided for advice and guidance only and should not be interpreted as diagnosis, or a substitute for a consultation with a dentist.

The free and impartial advice centre is open between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. If you need urgent advice on any oral health issue please give us a call on 01788 539780 (local rate call in the UK), otherwise, please send us your enquiry on the form below and one of our experts will usually respond within 3 working days.

Independent quality control of this service is provided by the Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK), which analyses a random selection of our enquiry responses.
