Dentists taking NHS patients in Buckland and Port Solent

Updated: Nov 30, 2023

30th November 2023 update

Smile Dental Care, Hanway Road dental practice are offering extra sessions all week (Mondays to Fridays).

2 Hanway Road, Portsmouth, Hampshire, PO1 4ND (023 9323 3177).

We have also been asked by NHS England to pass on some information they have received from the dentists offering more appointment slots that:

  • same day appointments aren’t always available (even if there is an extra session of appointments arranged for that day as this may be fully booked)

  • practices will book patients into their next available slot

  • some practices are experiencing high failure to attend rates, and while they do their own reminders, please remember to cancel your appointment if you are unable to attend (because it could be offered to another person who is waiting.)

There may be additional provision in the city in the next few weeks so keep a lookout here and for alerts via our social media channels.

Information about appointment availability over Christmas and New Year is being collated, so this will be issued as soon as possible.
