Finding us & more information

Gloucestershire Community Dental Service operates across 7 specialist sites within Gloucestershire and our services are available to patients living in the county who would benefit from special care dentistry.

If you feel that you or someone you care for would benefit from being treated within our service, please discuss a referral with your dentist, doctor or other healthcare professional.

You may be caring for someone who is house-bound / bed-bound and are unable to leave their residence for any reason i.e. doctor appointments, hairdresser / barber, podiatry or social occasions etc. Referrals will be accepted from individuals, family members, carers or healthcare professionals for people who meet our strict acceptance criteria. (Please see domiciliary ‘home’ visits.)

You can use the links and map provided to find the information you require to contact any of our clinics.

Please be aware that some clinics are only open to patients on certain days of the week and do not have reception facilities.

      Emergency appointments for Gloucestershire Community Dental Service patients

       

      Urgent pain relief can be accessed as below:

      In Hours (8.45am – 5.00pm Monday to Friday.)

      Patients seen regularly or under a current course of treatment with the Gloucestershire Community Dental Service should contact the clinic that they normally attend for advice. If this clinic is closed, patients should contact our clinic in Gloucester by calling 0300 421 6440.

      Out of Hours (5.00pm – 8.00pm weekdays, 9.00am – 3.00pm Weekends and Bank Holidays)

      Our patients should call 0300 421 6440. Current NHS dental charges may apply.

      Failed or cancelled appointments

      If you need to change or cancel an appointment, please give us as much notice as possible, and we can look for an alternative time that is convenient.

      Appointments cancelled at short notice may mean the dentist’s time could have been used to see and treat another patient. Please let us know if you are unable to attend an appointment, so that we can offer time to someone else.

      If you fail to keep an appointment, subsequent appointments you have made may need to be cancelled.

      It is important to the health and wellbeing of our patients that they receive input from the dental service to receive any necessary treatment and maintain their oral health. If children or vulnerable adults are not brought to appointments, please be aware that we have a duty of care to share this information with their GP and other agencies involved with their welfare.
