Hi All,

Please can anyone tell me if there is a dentist available within the Brynamman/Ammanford/Pontardulais/Cross Hands area?

Thanks in advance

    If you aren't registered with a dentist, you'll probably need to call 0845 46 47 (or 111 if it covers your area) and ask for an emergency dental service. AFAIK all dentists are now not accepting new patients because to register with a dentist requires an initial exam/check-up and all those have been suspended. 

    Brynteg Dental Practice in Ammanford 's website says they have limited availability for new registrations in Tenby; that might not be up to date. Don't know if it's NHS or private.

    A kind word lasts a minute, a skelped erse is sair for a day.

    Have you tried calling a local dental surgery out-of-hours? You may find that their automated message provides you with details of how to access an emergency dentist.

    If it is not emergency, most NHS dentists in Wales are fully booked and are not accepting new patients. I live in North Wales and I have been on the waiting list for more than a year now. I joined a private BUPA dentist for general checkup in the mean time.
