Update to General Dental Services - August 2022

All dental practices remain open for children and adults throughout Swansea and Neath Port Talbot. However, COVID-19 continues to be prevalent in our communities and whilst Wales remains in the amber phase of the recovery process, those with an urgent dental problem or who had their treatment stopped due to the pandemic are prioritised for dental care.

This may mean that your expected regular oral health screening check-up may be delayed. If you have any concerns then please contact your regular dentist for advice.

Across Wales there is currently a high demand from patients looking for an NHS dentist. The health board does not hold a list of practices taking on NHS patients as the situation is constantly changing.

We would therefore advise any patient looking for an NHS dentist to contact a number of practices in their local area and if they cannot be offered an appointment, to ask to be put on the practice waiting list. There are no restrictions on the number of waiting lists that patients can join.

To find an NHS dental practice in your area you can use the Find Your Local Dentist tool.

Alternatively, you can follow this link to access a full list of dental practices in the Swansea Bay area.
