NHS dentistry satisfaction is on the rise
A recent poll revealed that NHS dentistry satisfaction is on the rise. The survey was carried out by the National Centre for Social Research between July and October last year.

When the data was analysed it showed that NHS dentistry satisfaction has risen by seven percent. This takes the figures up to sixty-one percent. This is the highest public satisfaction rating since the beginning of the nineties. As you can imagine, the BDA (British Dental Association) have welcomed the news that satisfaction is on the rise.
