Dentistry podcast – Neel Kothari on NHS dental targets
In this week’s podcast episode we speak to Neel Kothari, a general dentist who works in a mixed practice in Sawston, Cambridgeshire.
We discuss the latest contract requirements and what effect he believes it will have on NHS dentistry.
‘I actually don’t see any signs or any evidence that the NHS has a method of remunerating dentistry without targets,’ he says.
‘Dentistry to the NHS is a little bit like the awkward cousin in the family. Nobody quite wants to invite them to the party but you kind of have to because it’s a family gathering.’
