The Wessex Dental Helpline

The Helpline works in partnership with other health partners across Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight to improve access to dental services.

Residents and visitors to Dorset, Hampshire and Isle of Wight can use the Wessex Dental Helpline. At least 5,000 calls a month are processed through the Helpline, with the service also managing around 120 urgent care dental appointments daily, across the Dorset, Hampshire and Isle of Wight area.

The Wessex Dental Helpline operates 7 days a week, offering help and advice to patients for a range of dental needs. It works with local dental practices to offer urgent dental appointments to patients, where appropriate, after advice has been given by a trained dental advisor.

If you have a dental emergency please contact the Wessex Dental Helpline by calling 111.
