Accessing urgent dental care during Alert Level 3

Healthcare for urgent and emergency oral health (dental) needs remains in place through Alert Level 3, and people are encouraged not to delay getting advice for urgent dental needs.

The Nelson Marlborough Health (NMH) hospital oral health services, the NMH community oral health service and private dentists have been working collaboratively to provide essential dental care throughout all levels of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“There has been some uncertainty in the community around access to dental care and we’d like people to know that urgent care is still available. Unresolved dental infection can be life-threatening, so it is really important to seek help if you have any concerns,” says Dr Donna Kennedy, Clinical Head of Department, NMH Hospital Oral Health Service.
