Health and Social Care Committee
The deadline for written evidence was Friday 13 September 2019
The state of dentistry in England is cause for public concern and the Committee is launching an inquiry into dentistry services.
Dentistry has been a part of the NHS since its inception in 1948. In 1951, charges for dentures, the first charges of any kind for NHS treatment, were introduced. Other charges were later introduced for dental services.
Previous governments have acknowledged that the focus of NHS dentistry has been too focused on treatment rather than prevention. The Government is currently testing prototypes for a new dental contract with an emphasis on prevention.
No evidence has been published by the committee yet.
There are currently no public meetings scheduled.
