All Wales Information

The NHS 111 Wales website aims to provide you with a choice of nearest dental practices.  Across Wales there is currently a high demand from patients looking for an NHS dentist. NHS 111 Wales does not hold a list of practices taking on NHS patients as the situation is constantly changing.  It is strongly advised that any patient looking for an NHS dentist contacts a number of practices in their local area and if they cannot be offered an appointment, to ask to be put on the practice waiting list. There are no restrictions on the number of waiting lists that patients can join.
