How do I find a dentist?

You do not have to register with a dentist to get a dental check or any subsequent treatment. However, you will need to make an appointment with a dentist. Information about local dentists can be found at or by telephoning the NHS Dental Access Centre: 01162 951278. It is advisable to ask the dentist whether they accept NHS patients as many do not. The dentist will probably want to check you are eligible for NHS treatment and your NHS card is proof of this.

If you are not entitled to NHS treatment, or the dentist you choose does not take NHS patients (some dentists will only accept private patients), you will have to pay for the full cost of your treatment.
