Some dentists 'misleading' patients over NHS treatment

Some dentists are misleading patients over their right to NHS treatment so they will pay for private treatment instead, the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) has found.

In a study of NHS and private dentistry in the UK, the OFT found that about 500,000 people a year were given the wrong information about their treatment options.

The BBC's personal finance correspondent Simon Gompertz reports.
