I can't seem to find anywhere that is taking on NHS dental patients 

Comment added by Anne Oliver | 2 months ago

At Healthwatch Cornwall we receive a large amount of calls about NHS dentistry all of which are noted and included in our database so they can form part of our anonymised feedback to the decision makers in Cornwall’s health and social care system.  We are aware that difficulties in finding an NHS dentist, and waiting times to get one, are an issue within Cornwall. There is a Dentist helpline where your name can be added to the waiting list, this is 03330 063300.  If you need emergency dental help in the meantime, please call 0333 4050290.  Surgeries are run on a rotating basis throughout the county and treatment is a one off fixed cost per visit regardless of treatment.

I also found that I managed to register quicker by phoning round all my local dentists to ask whether they were taking on any new NHS patients. I'd registered on the NHS database but didn't hear anything from them but got into a dentist quite quickly by just phoning round.
