Can you ask to change your NHS dentist in a group practice?

My dentist practise is like my doctors. I can see anyone I like doesn't have to be the one I'm registered with

Yes as far as I know you are able to register with any NHS dental practice that will have you! They don't have "catchment areas" like doctors do. Some practices aren't taking NHS patients at the moment though, so how easy it will be to find another one, I don't know!

Sorry, should have read your post properly. Yes you can express a preference for dentist.

You can ask. It's a bit awkward for the dentists though IME.
