NHS dental portal

22 October 2012

The NHS Dental Portal is a free online service for NHS dentists, giving them 24/7 access to downloadable pay statements and reports, contractual information, progress reports for claims including rejected claims information and information on superannuation contributions.

NHS Dental Services will be writing to all providers and performers in November and December with details of how to activate their portal account. The portal rollout timetable shows the date that each provider and performer will receive their activation letter.

The functionality available to either a provider or performer (which is slightly different), will be clarified in the guidance/FAQs when the individual dentist uses the system for the first time.
