Enjoy the full range of NHS treatments at our NHS Dentist in Handforth
 

A couple in need of dental care say they had to pull out their own teeth because no NHS dentist will treat them.

 

A BBC News analysis of 2,500 dental practices on the NHS Choices website found half were not accepting new adult NHS patients, while two-fifths were not accepting new child NHS patients.

The British Dental Association (BDA) said the figures reflected an "emerging crisis" in dental care in England.

 

NHS England said 95% of people seeking an appointment could get one.

 

Government underfunding contributing to a dental crisis

Following a BBC News analysis that discovered half of dental practices on the NHS Choices website were not accepting new patients in England, leading health charity the Oral Health Foundation wants to see more investment and funding put into NHS dentistry.

The charity supports calls declaring the figures as an "emerging crisis" in dental care in England and want to see the government act urgently to prevent the problem increasing further.
