NHS Fife has announced that routine dental care services in high street practices have been suspended.

Patients who feel they have an “urgent dental need” during normal working hours should call their practice. If it’s outwith those hours, call NHS 24 on 111.

A statement from the health board added: "Do not go to your dental practice. You should telephone your practice on their usual number. Your dentist will be able to give you advice, including on taking pain relief or prescribe antibiotics.

“If your dentist confirms that you have an urgent dental need, if you have no symptoms of Covid-19, you will be offered an appointment at an urgent dental care centre. Your dentist will phone the service on your behalf.”
