The British Dental Health Foundation (BDHF) is advising the public to contact the Dental Helpline for any dental related concerns. This is an independent UK charity that offers free and impartial advice on dental issues. This is linked with any concerns and queries that one might have for their NHS dental treatment.
The BDHF has great concern that after the television show that was aired more and more people will worry about the repercussions of having dental care at NHS. Most patients have this concern about the kind of service that they will receive from a NHS dentist and the kind of costs that they will have to shell out for the NHS treatment.
There have been some real concerns that have been highlighted and this is according to the ideas that people have about UK dental care. The program aired content that was very disappointing for the image of dentistry, the main loser could be the public if they choose to delay or cancel their treatment because of concerns like charges said Dr Nigel Carter, Chief Executive of the BDHF.
The good news is that the public can seek advice and help from our free and impartial Dental Helpline. The team of qualified dental professionals can advise on subjects, such as dental terms and treatment procedures, oral hygiene, current UK legislation and regulations, NHS and private dental charges, complaints procedures, and referrals to other organizations.
