Government failing dentists

1st May 2007

The British Dental Association (BDA) has said there are 1,200 less dentists providing NHS services than there were before the new dental contract was implemented a year ago.

According to BDA Chief Executive, Peter Ward, the new contract has done nothing to entice dentists to the NHS.  In a letter to the prime minister Mr Ward calls for more to be done to make NHS care a viable option for dentists who still want to provide it.  Mr Ward goes on to accuse the government of alienating dentists by creating a target-driven contract and failing to meet its own success criteria.
