The problem

Discredited contracts are fuelling an exodus from the NHS. Dentists are on a treadmill. The payments they receive often bare little relation to the work they do, and some treatments can be delivered at a financial loss. These systems fail high needs patients, who require and deserve more time in the chair.

The solution

We've seen tweaks to failed systems. What's required is fundamental reform and sustainable funding alongside a model of care that properly rewards dentists for prevention and supports work with the patients who need care the most.

Our impact

We lead the case for change on behalf of all dentists, in formal negotiations, and in our campaign work to fight for fair pay.
