Patients are being reminded that they have the right to move from one dentist to another if they are not happy with their treatment.
Nigel Carter, chief executive of charity the British Dental Health Foundation, said people are free to shop around, although many might not be aware of this.
Whilst it is reported in some cases patients may feel an element of coercion to take up a patient plan, when a dentist changes over from NHS to private, they are always free to move.
And there are many more paying patients, who because of the high levels of patient satisfaction with their dentist, not acknowledged in the report, chose not to move.
