BBC Look North
NHS England says it is looking at how it can improve access to dentists in East Yorkshire.
The Beverley and Holderness MP Graham Stuart says many people are having to travel miles to Hull and Cottingham to see an NHS dentist, because of long waiting lists where they live.
Moira Dumma, Director of Commissioning Operations, NHS England in Yorkshire and the Humber said:
NHS England is committed to ensuring that all patients that wish to access NHS Dental Services can do so and we are currently reviewing how we can improve access to NHS dentists across our region and looking at how we can introduce additional capacity from within our existing budget."

Fears for the future of community transport in East Yorkshire
Political Reporter East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire
Community transport groups in East Yorkshire claim they're at risk of closure because of planned government changes.
The Holderness Area Rural Transport group say proposed new rules for drivers could force community transport to shut down and leave people who use the service isolated.
Last year they provided over 45,000 journeys for passengers.
The government's now written to community transport providers across the country saying its looking into whether drivers for some community transport groups should, in the future, hold a public service vehicle licence.
Along with the training and the test, this licence can cost around £1,000 to obtain.
Some argue these proposed changes could hike up running costs and make it difficult for services like this to continue.
The Department for Transport says it has to make these changes because of EU law and it plans to consult later this year on which operators will require professional licences.
