It is regrettable if some NHS patients are having appointments cancelled to facilitate private dental provision, although we have no current evidence to suggest that this is occurring.

Access to NHS general dental services is improving with an additional 1.15 million patients being registered in the period from 31 March 2007 to 31 December 2010.
