We continue to work closely with the National Health Service, Public Health England and Health Education England to address the issues raised in the British Dental Association’s survey.

This includes increasing access to dental services, while maintaining measures to protect staff and patients from COVID-19 infection; reviewing the current dental contract; and exploring opportunities and options for flexible dental training pathways, to develop dental care teams, improve retention and deliver safe and effective care.
