Everyone should be able to access good-quality NHS dental services.
Find a dental practice that is convenient for you, whether it's near your home or work, and phone them to see if there are any appointments available. Unlike with GPs, you are not bound to a catchment area.
Dental practices won't always have the capacity to take on new NHS patients – you may have to join a waiting list or look for a different dentist who is taking on new NHS patients.
