The easiest way to find a NHS dentist is to visit our Find a NHS Dentist page to search for local dentists accepting new NHS patients, and click “Find a NHS dentist near me”.
Our website will then ask permission to access your current location – click “Allow”. We can then search through all the NHS dentists in your area and make a list of the closest dental practices that have said they are accepting new NHS patients. You should then work your way down the list and call each practice to check they are still accepting new patients and find out about their registration process.
Dental practices do not restricted patient registration by area or post code like doctors’ surgeries, so can choose which practice is convenient for you. Instead of searching near your current location, you could type in your work’s address or post code to find a dentist near your workplace. You can even register at more than one practice at a time.
