gtd healthcare, in partnership with two dental practices, has been commissioned by NHS England as the preferred provider of all out-of-hours dental services for residents across Greater Manchester covering a population of 1.8 million people. We provide high quality, patient centred out of hours dental cover.
How to contact us
If you live in Oldham, Salford, Trafford, Manchester, Stockport, Tameside or Glossop and require urgent dental advice or attention when your dental practice is closed you can contact us on 0161 337 2246.
We are open between 6pm and 10pm, Monday - Friday and between 10am and 10pm on Saturday and Sunday. Outside of these hours your call will reach a voicemail system that will redirect you to the 111 service.
A trained telephonist will answer your call and then ask a few personal details including the reason for your call. You will then be contacted by one of our highly qualified dental nurses who will complete an assessment over the phone and provide you with appropriate advice.
If you are given an appointment with a dentist, fees are payable for treatment under the NHS unless you receive certain benefits. There will be a minimum charge of £20.60 for the attention you receive during your appointment. If you are exempt from payment, please bring proof with you to the practice as our dentist will ask for evidence that you are entitled to free NHS dental treatment. Please ask the reception staff for further information. Please be aware that only cash payments can be accepted.
If you do not currently have a regular dentist that you attend and require an in-hours dental appointment or routine treatment, please call 0161 476 9649.
