As a practice we are always very keen to keep up to date on the latest news in the dental industry. We recently came across a very interesting article in the dental press ‘Why the Times has got it wrong’.
You may recall an article in The Times back in September ‘The great dental rip off”. This article caused wide debate both for the public, media outlets and the dental profession. As mentioned in this reply to The Times article, printed in The Probe, we agree that Dentists as a whole provide a very valuable service to patients and work to their best ability within the funding provided by the government.
Extractions unfortunately do tend to result from patients particularly asking for a tooth to be removed and it is more likely to come from patients who do not benefit from preventive care, by attending regular dental appointments, rather than a drive for money from the practitioner.
If you are concerned that your dental needs are not being met by the Government’s NHS contract, we welcome seeing you privately, so that we can provide fully comprehensive dentistry without the restrictions of the current NHS system.
