NHS dentistry discussed: can NHS dentistry return to ‘normal’, and should it?

A year has passed since face-to-face care resumed. But what impact has COVID-19 had on NHS dentistry?

With Healthwatch England pointing to NHS patient waiting times of up to three years and PPE and fallow time impacting the workforce both now and in the long term, the big question that Nigel Jones, Eddie Crouch and Lisa Bainham will be discussing is – can NHS dentistry return to ‘normal’, and should it? Join Nigel, Eddie and Lisa for this live webinar where they’ll talk about…
  • The impact the 60% UDA target is having on NHS practices and if that level of dentistry is achievable
  • How PPE, fallow time, policies and procedures are limiting the flow of patients through a practice and resulting in an access crisis
  • The backlog of missed dental appointments and guidance on how to sensitively manage patient expectations
  • The impact the pandemic has had on the mental health of those working within the constraints of the NHS
  • Recruitment, retention and the number of dentists considering their future in the profession or reducing their NHS commitment
  • The roadmap to ease restrictions and what the future holds for NHS dentistry.
Plus, there'll be a Q&A throughout where you can ask Nigel, Eddie and Lisa any burning questions you may have!
