NHS or private? What's the future for UK dentistry?

13 May 2023
British Dental Association N40

With constant change in the industry, it's more important than ever to assess the current state of UK dentistry and what lies ahead. Visit our BDA on-stand short talks with Shawn Charlwood, Chair of the General Dental Practice Committee and Martin Woodrow, CEO of the British Dental Association, to review the future of dentistry in the UK amidst debate about NHS and private care. The talk will examine the data and trends that are driving shifts towards private care and what this means for patients, dentists, and the future of the profession. It will also address the critical role that government action must play in saving NHS dentistry and ensuring access to quality care for all patients.
