Independent review of the NHS dental contract

Petition Details

The current dental care arrangements were launched in 2006 and by 2008 the House of Commons described the system as “failing by any criteria". These arrangements are failing patients and dental teams leading to access problems around the country.

Additional Information

We need a dental service that has prevention at its heart with a priority of delivering access to care and reducing dental health inequalities.

We need a system that enables the whole of the dental team to contribute to improving health, empowering dentists, therapists, hygienists, technicians and nurses to work together to provide the best possible care for patients.

We are calling for an independent review of the existing contract and a radical rethink of the way in which dental services are delivered.
