NHS Dental Services in England

Your local Primary Care Trust (PCT) is in charge of arranging NHS dental services in your area. These services include urgent treatment, out-of-hours care and emergencies.*

NHS dental charges are now simpler and easier to understand, and your dentist should always tell you how much you need to pay before starting treatment. Some people will not have to pay anything at all- see further information to find out if this applies to you.

As a result of changes to NHS dentistry, your dentist should have more time to spend with you and to give you advice on how to keep your teeth, mouth and gums healthy.

Any treatments that your dentist feels you need to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy are available on the NHS. These treatments include dentures, crowns and bridges.

Your dentist will ask you back for regular check ups. If your dental health is good, you may only have to come for a check up every two years.

You no longer need to register with a dentist to get regular treatment. Simply contact a practice offering NHS dentistry and ask if you can have an appointment.

To find out which practices in your area are taking on NHS patients, contact NHS direct on 08454647 or look on the internet at www.nhs.uk/England/Dentists.

*Even if you do not have a regular dentist, you can always get urgent NHS dental care, or be treated out of normal surgery hours, if necessary. Contact your PCT (office hours only), or NHS Direct on 08454647. You will find out more information and details about how to contact your PCT at: www.nhs.uk/England/Dentists.
