Dentists countdown to OFT report publication

The BDA is publishing a series of blogs considering the likely themes of the report and the issues they raise.

This is ahead of the expected publication of the Office of Fair Trading’s report of its inquiry into the UK dental market later this month.

The terms of reference for the report, which were published in September 2011, outlined a broad remit across both NHS and private practice.

The conclusions could have profound implications for the practice of dentistry in the UK

The series begins this week with the thoughts of executive board chair, Dr Susie Sanderson, on the issue of pricing and its clarity for patients.

Further blogs will follow over the coming weeks.

When the report is published, the BDA will be issuing a response to the report and provide analysis for members on its implications on its dedicated OFT inquiry web pages.
