I am not sure that the hon. Gentleman has quite understood exactly how the new commissioning will take place. If a dentist chooses to leave the NHS, that money can be used by the PCT to provide what it feels is appropriate in the local area. If it feels it is appropriate to have a dental access centre, it can have one. However, it is more likely to want to commission dentistry from the existing dentists in the area.
