BDA unhappy with pay increases.
The British Dental Association (BDA) has claimed its funding levels for 2010-11 are “disappointing”.
The Department of Health announced salaried dentists will see a pay increase of one per cent over the coming year, while dental practitioners are set to receive a 0.9 per cent raise.
Susie Sanderson, chair of the BDA’s executive board, said: “High street dentists will be particularly disappointed that the government has chosen to disregard the review body’s advice that efficiency savings should only be considered retrospectively.”
Indeed, Ms Sanderson noted the government would appear to be ignoring the fact that provision of dental services is getting more costly.
Elsewhere, Cosmetic Dentistry Guide recently reported access to emergency dentistry facilities remains poor in Yorkshire.
An NHS review showed 42,000 fewer adults were able to access dental health services in North Yorkshire in 2009 in comparison to 2007, despite the fact the government pledged to improve access in 2006.
