If you need NHS dental treatment, you first need to find out which dentists in your area are accepting new patients.
Once you have a list of a few dentists from the website or phoning 111, telephone each dentist to enquire:
If they are currently accepting new NHS patients.
If they are not, ask when they will be accepting NHS patients and take the soonest appointment.
Once you have that first appointment, you will be able to access continuing dental treatment under the NHS.
Ring your local dentist and find if they are accepting NHS patients.
