North East Dentists "My main concerns when going to the dentist are around my own anxieties, anything that can be done to reduce this is welcomed -

I do feel that the team are aware of my anxieties and do their best to reduce them, which I am grateful for! Thank you!"

COVID-19 update 23rd March 2020

I Like My Smile Dental Group is committed to the safety and wellbeing of its patients and staff. We follow all the recommended advice and policies that relate to social distancing, self isolation and cross infection control.

At the moment we are open to see existing patients who do not show signs of raised temperature for new persistent cough and with urgent and emergency dental problems.

If you do come to the practice please

  • Arrive at your appointment time, not before.
  • Ring the receptionist who will come and open the door for you. Ashington 01670 815327 Hadrian Park 0191 2344041
  • Come on your own where possible. If you need to bring a carer please call ahead to discuss that with us.

Urgent care includes treatment for:

  • Dental and soft-tissue infections without a systemic effect
  • Severe dental and facial pain: that is, pain that cannot be controlled by the patient following self-help advice
  • Fractured teeth or tooth with pulpal exposure

Dental emergencies include:

  • Trauma including facial/oral laceration and/or dentoalveolar injuries, for example avulsion of a permanent tooth
  • Oro-facial swelling that is significant and worsening
  • Post-extraction bleeding that the patient is not able to control with local measures
  • Dental conditions that have resulted in acute systemic illness or raised temperature as a result of dental infection
  • Severe trismus
  • Oro-dental conditions that are likely to exacerbate systemic medical conditions such as diabetes (that is lead to acute decompensation of medical conditions such as diabetes)

Treatments we cannot currently undertake include

  • Mild or moderate pain: that is, pain not associated with an urgent care condition and that responds to pain-relief measures
  • Minor dental trauma
  • Post-extraction bleeding that the patient is able to control using self-help measures
  • Loose or displaced crowns, bridges or veneers
  • Fractured or loose-fitting dentures and other appliances
  • Fractured posts
  • Fractured, loose or displaced fillings
  • Treatments normally associated with routine dental care including check-ups, Invisalign and implant treatment
  • Bleeding gums
