Accessing dental services in Lincolnshire

In line with national guidance issued in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, dental practices in Lincolnshire are currently closed for routine “face to face” dental appointments.

People seeking help with dental problems should not visit local dental practices but instead phone, between the hours of 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday, for information for advice on alternative arrangements in place.  During evenings after 5pm, weekends and bank holidays patients should contact NHS111.

All practices are offering telephone or video-link consultations and can prescribe pain killers and antibiotics if needed. They will also be able to onward refer those patients in need of urgent treatment to a service where they can be seen. People seeking help should not visit A&E departments or GP surgeries for dental care.
