Mrs. Moon: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many children are not registered with an NHS dentist; and what assessment her Department has made of the merits of revising the provision of school based dental checks for children. 
As at 30 September 2005, the number of children registered with an NHS dentist with a general dental services or personal dental services contract in England was 6,927,299. This is estimated to be 59 per cent. of the total child population in England.

Ms Rosie Winterton:
The information is not available in the format requested. However, the proportion of children registered within the Herefordshire Primary Care Trust as at November 2005 was 70 per cent.

1. The percentages of the population registered with a dentist (or registration rate) have been estimated by including patient registrations in the area of the dentist, that is, according to the postcode of the dental surgery and not the patient's address. So the registration rates for some areas may be affected by some patients receiving dental treatment in a different area from the one in which they live.
2 Feb 2006 : Column 721W
2. Estimates have been calculated using population estimates for the nearest year for which data are available. Percentages for 2005 have been calculated using 2004 mid year population estimates. 3. Information on children registered with a dentist at constituency level is not available as a percentage of the total number of children in the constituency. This is due to population data not being available at constituency level.
