A survey of over 2000 people from Healthwatch England has raised grave concerns with Dentistry in the UK.

People are finding it hard to access the NHS provided dental care, and then feel pressure to go privately which is an option many people justify,  as even NHS charges can be difficult to afford.

The survey has shown inequalities are unfair amid escalating living costs, and  calls on NHS England and the Department of Health and Social Care to put a reformed dental contract in place before formal responsibility for dental services passes to the 42 new Integrated Care Systems in April 2023.
