For 24 hour emergency dental care, please call 0121 705 3935, if this is outside of our regular clinic hours there will be instructions on how to access urgent dental care. it is important that you let us know the nature of your emergency in the event of leaving a message. Please check our list below of what is and is not a dental emergency.


I am newly registered to the practice. I had a broken crown (work carried out by my previous dentist) so I called Solihull Dental Centre to book an appointment to see if I could get it replaced. The lady I spoke to was very friendly and had me an appointment booked in within a few days - im usually used to waiting weeks with my previous dentist. Dr Sacranie was very professional and discussed all treatment options with me, involving me the whole way through - I didn't once feel rushed. I was made very comfortable and at ease throughout both appointments and I couldn't be happier with the result! Very impressed with the practice, all staff were friendly, welcoming and attentive and the practice itself is lovely, highly recommend! - Charl0ttex

  • Dental swelling of your gum, face, cheek or neck which is spreading.
  • A recent dental extraction which continues to bleed and can't be stopped by biting down soft padding.
  • An avulsed (knocked out) tooth
