Visually impaired should have better information, expert says

Sun

Those with disabilities should be given more dentistry guidance.

The visually impaired in the UK should be provided with better information regarding dentistry, it has been claimed.

Dr Nigel Carter, chief executive of the British Dental Health Foundation, said more needs to be done to ensure all areas of society are aware of the oral health services that are available to them.

Indeed, he noted there is a level of inequality in the present system, as it does not cater for those with disabilities fairly.

He made his comments following the publication of a study carried out by Moorfields Hospital in London, which showed that visually impaired people were less likely to visit their dentist on a regular basis.

Elsewhere, Conservative shadow health minister Mike Penning recently claimed that should his party win at today’s (May 6th) polls, then he will introduce a new dentistry contract that will focus on improving levels of access for all sections of society.

General election ‘provides dentistry focus’

Sat

The upcoming election has allowed politicians to show their will to improve dentistry in the UK.

The upcoming election has provided an opportunity for the leading parties to showcase their commitment to improving dentistry provisions in the UK, it has been claimed.

According to Tory shadow health minister Mike Penning, should the Conservatives win at next week’s polls, then he will introduce a new dentistry contract that will focus on improving levels of access for all sections of society.

He commented: “These changes will allow us to give one million more people access to an NHS dentist and give every five-year-old a dental check-up.”

Elsewhere, Lakeside Dental recently claimed that an increase in drug treatments under the last government has led to more people requiring emergency dentistry treatments.

Known as xerostomia, this is brought about through these drugs killing protective bacteria in the mouth, thereby leading to an increased risk of cavities forming in previously healthy teeth.
