NHS dentistry is a priority

Dentistry was a headline issue in the 2024 General Election. As a local concern, voters placed dentistry above traditional doorstep issues like schools, and even crime. Our message goes to all parties: We need more than tweaks if NHS dentistry is going to survive. Read our priorities for the new parliament.

A day with Dr Pascal Magne

Dr Pascal Magne is coming to the UK! Don’t miss your chance to hear from him first hand learn more about how the perception and definition of an aesthetic smile is influenced by both objective and subjective criteria. During this day-long event, Pascal will present a tentative checklist for aesthetic dentistry and demonstrate that beauty and charm is not defined by a mathematical equation or a standardised recipe, but is a complex sum of balanced elements creating a positive emotional response.
