Dental services in the Western Isles are provided by the NHS Public Dental Service and independent NHS-committed practices.

Emergency Dental Services

  • If you have a dental emergency during surgery hours please contact your local clinic who will be able to help.
  • If you have a dental emergency outwith surgery opening hours please contact NHS24 by telephoning 111 where your problem will be triaged and an on-call dentist called out, if appropriate. Further information on NHS24 is available at www.nhs24.com/111

Dental Charges

Each of our salaried dental clinics are an NHS centre and current NHS charges apply. Current charges can be found here.

Every patient will receive a free dental examination and charges may apply for further treatment. Please ask at your local dental centre reception for an estimate.

Payment should be made at each appointment. Acceptable payment methods are by credit/debit card, cash or cheque.

If you are exempt from NHS dental charges, please bring evidence of your exemption along to your appointment. Exemption information can be found here.
