The department has previously estimated that there are some two million people in England who would like to access National Health Service dental services but are unable to do so. The assessment was not made in a form that can be broken down to provide data at primary care trust (PCT) level. Under the dental reforms introduced in April 2006, PCTs are now responsible for assessing local needs and developing services to reflect those needs.
