This article is a personal view of the document NHS Dentistry: Options For Change one year after publication. My first impression on looking at it now is a feeling that everything is still 'up in the air' despite the fact that the document was published a year ago.1 The vision for NHS dentistry described in the document for the future proposed as its main themes: 'meeting patients' needs, putting patients' interest first, developing the dental team and providing a service which would be available to everyone who wants it, including people with special needs, however they contact the NHS.' Brave words indeed, in view of the fact no real change had been officially suggested for NHS dentistry since 1948.
