Dentists recovering input vat (surely not!)

Obviously the majority of a dentist's supplies are outside the scope of VAT and so are exempt.  However, a "tax expert" has informed me that a dentist can in fact reclaim significant amounts of input VAT!  Does anyone out there know how this is possible?  Or is this person simply incorrect.

Your help would be much appreciated.
