Problems finding an NHS dentist

NHS England commissions dental services in England and is required to meet the needs of their local population for both urgent and routine dental care. 

If NHS England has been unable to help you find a dentist and you want to raise your concerns about this, contact them on: 

If you're still not satisfied with NHS England's response, you can take your complaint to the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman
