NHS Dental Registration Policy

Due to the high number of people wishing to receive NHS dental treatment and the very long waiting lists, we have no choice but to de-register patients who have not attended for two years or more.

In our practice, we try to remind our patients when they are due for their dental examinations via text message, email and letters. However, we often find that many of our communications get returned as patients do not update their details with us

What do you need to do to keep your registration?

If you have not booked an appointment, please contact the practice to make an appointment at your earliest convenience.

Once you have been de-registered, you are no longer able to receive NHS treatment at the practice. If you want to receive NHS treatment again, you will need to join our waiting list. As our NHS waiting lists is quite long, it may be some time before you can be seen under the NHS. So, our recommendation is that you protect your registered status.


Our recommendation is that you protect your registered status by attending your appointments and booking your next appointment before you leave the practice.
