The main purpose of Dental Choices is to help you register with a NHS dentist. Search now to view a simple list of local dentists accepting new NHS patients in England.
In addition to helping you find a NHS dentist, Dental Choices aims to provide reliable information about dentistry to help you make informed decisions about your oral health and oral health care.
We may live in the age of information, but not all information is useful or trustworthy.
NHS Choices for example, historically contained a large amount of oral and dental information, but it was often confusing and poorly-moderated inappropriate user comments added to this confusion.
NHS choices seems to be currently evolving into a better information source, now branded just as the NHS website. Public comments have been removed making the articles much clearer but there is still some confusing information and each article is scheduled for review only once every three years.
Dental Choices aims to give useful information and highlight trusted sources.
While we strive for our content to be as accurate as possible, it is the nature of science to adapt and evolve with new research and new evidence. Information contained on this website should not be used as an alternative to professional advice from a dentist, doctor or other health care professional.
