Finding an NHS dentist

Hi I have just moved cities and was wondering if I could have some advise on NHS dentists. I have called all the dentists off the NHS denists search in a 5 mile radius, they are either not accepting patients or have a 5/9/12 month waiting list. Is there anything I can do to see an NHS dentist quicker than this?

Thank you

"If after contacting several dental practices you still can’t find a dentist accepting NHS patients, you should contact your local NHS England Area team, which should be able to tell you about available dentists in your area. NHS England commissions dental services in England and by doing so is required to meet the needs of their local population, for both urgent and routine dental care."
