Dental news you’ve missed this week
Missed out on this week’s dental news? No problem, here’s what happened over the past seven days…
Yesterday Sara Hurley hosted her second coronavirus webinar. Earlier this week she spoke exclusively to Dentistry.co.uk about the decisions made so far during the coronavirus crisis and when dentistry might reopen.
News on the coronavirus at the moment is focusing on PPE (or lack of it) for health workers. These delays are forcing dentists to have to pay for private fit testing.
The bad news doesn’t stop there, with fears the virus could worsen dental access problems in Cornwall.
More than 100 MPs have joined forces to call for better financial support for private dentists during the lockdown. As Carl Valencia from Rangewell puts it, private practices run the risk of ‘falling between too many cracks’ with current business support schemes.
We’ve been hearing stories from many of you about your experiences during lockdown. This week we heard from Natalie Bradley about her time working in an urgent dental care hub over Easter.
On to some good news, it’s been inspirational to hear about some of the things practices and dental teams are doing for their communities around the UK.
And finally, we’d like to announce the launch of our new podcast series where we will bring to life the current conversations of the UK dental profession and industry. You can hear the first episode with Andy Acton here.
