    A patients' group says it is concerned over a lack of access to NHS dentists in South Gloucestershire after two surgeries turned private. Frampton and Flaxpits surgeries say NHS targets can not be reached without putting patients and staff at risk. and they must go private to survive. Vicky Marriott, of Healthwatch, an independent statutory body representing patients, said not having an option to have NHS care was a "real concern". In a letter to patients, Dr Dimitri Haddjeri, dentist at Framptom and Flaxpits surgeries, said "target-driven, high-volume dentistry" was "not fit fo

    New data indicates the dental crisis shows no signs of slowing, with four in five people (80%) struggling to access timely care during the last COVID-19 lockdown. Access to NHS dental care continues to be a problem for people across England, with Healthwatch recording a 22% rise in calls and complaints about dentistry between January and March 2021.   A review of 1,375 people’s experiences shared with Healthwatch found a lack of consistency across the country when it comes to accessing a dental appointment. Whilst some people were asked to wait an unreasonable time of up to three ye

    People are being told to wait until 2024 for dentist appointments while others are being removed from their practice lists for not making appointments sooner, according to a damning report into the state of dentistry. Dental surgeries have reported that they have thousands of people on their waiting lists, while patients are unable to access care after ringing round numerous dental surgeries, a watchdog has warned. Delays have resulted in the worsening of painful symptoms and in one instance even led to a patient needing hospital treatment after overdosing on painkillers, it said.

    The gap was illustrated through an investigation that focused on a case of wrong tooth extraction. Wrong tooth extraction was categorised as a Never Event and therefore HSIB sought to understand the ‘barriers’ that exist in the pathway of care for wrong tooth extraction. The report identifies that while there are controls in place to prevent wrong tooth extraction, they invariably rely on staff to be effective and should not be regarded as ‘strong systemic protective’ barriers. The investigation went further to examine the differences in how the NHS defines and assures barriers in compari

    Dentists are warning of a looming dental and mouth cancer crisis after months of delays and patients being unable to get check-ups and repair work. It comes as surgeries begin to reopen more widely but dentists are still facing significant restrictions on how they can operate, with rooms having to be vacated for an hour after any treatment is done using a drill. For Maezama Malik, who is the principal dentist of her surgery in Croydon, south London, this has caused a big backlog of patients. She said the biggest worry is that a patient might have "something minor that could prog

    Dental practices in England have been told they can reopen from Monday 8 June, if they put in place appropriate safety measures. All routine dental care in England has been suspended since 25 March. The British Dental Association (BDA) has welcomed the announcement but says key questions remain. Currently, any patient with an emergency dental problem is supposed to be referred to an Urgent Dental Care (UDC) hub for treatment. In a letter to all practices, NHS England's chief dental officer, Sara Hurley, said: "Today, we are asking that all dental practices commence opening from

    Some NHS dental patients have been asked to pay for private care "if they want any treatment", according to a watchdog. Others are facing waits of up to two years for an NHS appointment, Healthwatch England has warned. One patient was in so much pain he decided to extract his own teeth, said its chairman Sir Robert Francis QC. The NHS said over 650 urgent dental hubs have been set up so patients can access a dentist. Hundreds of people contacted Healthwatch England between October and December last year complaining about dentistry issues. A briefing document from the watchd

    Wrong tooth extraction has been clearly designated as a 'never event' since April 2015. However, in 2016/17, wrong tooth extraction topped the charts as being the most frequently occurring never event based on NHS England’s data. What can we do to mitigate these incidents? Based on both practical experience and research evidence, BAOS advises that the main methods for mitigation of errors are: learning from mistakes – including investigation and root cause analysis engaging the clinical team when developing 'correct site surgery' policies utilising the LocSSIPs temp

    The British Dental Association (BDA) has criticised NHS England for “dragging its feet” in setting up an urgent care system for dental patients, putting further strain on already overstretched GPs. At the end of March, dental practices were ordered to suspend all routine treatment, as part of plans to prevent the spread of coronavirus. NHS regions were instructed to set up local urgent dental care centres. However, GPs have told HSJ they have been experiencing a rise in calls from patients with dental problems, but when they direct them to the urgent care centres, appointments appear

    Millions of patients face being left without a dentist as one in five practices are on the brink of collapse this month. A sharp loss of income since the government banned all routine dental care during the coronavirus crisis has crippled practices, with many poised to close permanently. Some have already been forced out of business. A British Dental Association (BDA) survey of 2,800 practices found 71.5% said they could stay “financially sustainable” for only three months at the most. More than one in five, 20.4%, said they would not survive beyond April. Mick Armstrong, who chairs

General Dental Council (GDC) figures showed a 26% rise in reports last year. Teeth-whitening can only be performed legally in the UK by professionals registered with the GDC. One beauty school claimed to have provided "thousands" of candidates with illegitimate qualifications, an undercover investigation found. Failure to comply with the requirement to be registered can result in a criminal record and an unlimited fine. Untraine
