Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Many services will be experiencing disruption at this time. Please contact them directly for further information.

For guidance on Coronavirus and the latest information on the situation in Devon, visit Devon County Council's Coronavirus (COVID-19) advice page.

Barnstaple NHS Dental Access Centre

The Salaried Dental Service provides both an Urgent Care service through its Dental Access Centres and a Special Care Dental Service. The Dental Access Centres are available to anyone who resides in the Devon area, who does not have a regular general dental practitioner (NHS or Private). It is also open to visitors to the area who are unable to reach their own dentist.

The service is not available to people who already have a general dental practitioner in the Devon area. Appointments are booked for patients through the Access Centres or through Devon Doctors one day ahead. Patients are either given an allotted time or attend on a first come first seen basis.  

Although urgent appointments are available this is not a drop-in service. You must telephone the service to make an appointment in advance.

Normal NHS dental charges will apply for all patients unless you are exempt, (evidence of which must be brought to your appointment). We accept cash or cheque at the time of your appointment.
