NHS Dentists Shortage worsens over New Contracts

Official figures released have shown that over 1,600 dentists have quit the NHS rather than sign new contracts. Around one in 10 has rejected Labour's reforms//, which has left around one million patients without an NHS dentist.

Chief executive Derek Watson said: "In addition to the fact that the number of dentists has fallen by 1,649, each dentist will be doing less work on the NHS making the access problem worse. Private treatment has now overtaken NHS treatment as dentists' main source of income."
