Dental Problems

Dental problems should be dealt with by a dentist. He or she is able to prescribe antibiotics for you and can best advise on the treatment of abscesses, toothache, etc. If you are not registered with a dentist, you should call 01625 669 034 for advice. It is not appropriate to attend A&E with dental problems.
