Health and Social Care Committee launch inquiry into dental services

Dentistry has been a part of the NHS since its inception in 1948. Previous governments have acknowledged that 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.

The House of Commons Health and Social Care Committee is holding an inquiry into dentistry services. The committee invites evidence from the public, organisations and others with relevant expertise, on the terms of reference.
