Dental Services

Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust Dental Service is a large organisation which provides a range of routine, urgent and emergency dental care services and oral health promotion programmes across Central & East Lancashire and Blackburn with Darwen.

We also provide dental services within three prisons and secure units.

How to access this service

For help finding an NHS dentist for urgent and routine care call your Local Dental Helpline:

  • East Lancashire and Blackburn with Darwen: Tel: 0845 53 33 230
  • Central Lancashire: Tel: 01772 777397

For patients wishing to access special care services, our clinic receptionists would be happy to discuss referral criteria with you.

For healthy teeth & gums follow this simple advice:
  • Brush teeth and gums twice a day with a family fluoride toothpaste, including last thing at night before bed. Spit out after brushing and do not rinse. This will help strengthen teeth
  • For babies and children up to 3 years old use only a smear of family fluoride toothpaste. For children aged 3 years and over use a pea-sized amount of family fluoride toothpaste. Children need help with brushing until they are at least seven years old
  • To prevent decay cut down how often you have sugary snacks and drinks – keep to mealtimes only. Avoid sugary foods and drinks between meals and before bed
  • Choose sugar-free snacks and water or milk between meals
  • Request sugar-free medicines
  • Visit the dentist regularly - your dentist will recommend how often you need to attend
