Dental services for Asylum seekers and Refugees.

It is very important that patients seeking help do not visit A&E departments or GP surgeries for dental care. Emergency care related to dental issues will only be provided by A&E departments if there are life threating issues such as uncontrollable bleeding, swelling affecting the airways etc. Although Dental Practices are now open, access to routine dental care is extremely limited due to the essential safety measures in place to protect both patients and staff and a reduction in the capacity to treat patients as a result of this.

    Good afternoon, I am an asylum seeker accommodated near King’s Cross station in London’s borough of Camden. I am looking for a dentist who can provide free treatment. I am struggling to find any NHS dentists near my stay that accept patients.

    I would really appreciate it if you can help me out.

    Kind Regards,

    Hello there, I am struggling to find a NHS Dentist Care near me. Last time I received help from a Dental Care with NHS( optional status) but the Dentist assured me that the care will not be permanent but rather temporary due to the status I behold as an Asylum Seeker. I was grateful regardless but the filling fell out. And I am now struggling to find a dentist whose willing to help me for free with a permanent care.

    I would really appreciate it if you help me find one.
