About the webinar:

Following NHS England’s announcement to make the first significant change to the dental contract since its introduction, Practice Plan’s Nigel Jones puts audience questions to Eddie Crouch, Chair of the British Dental Association Principal Executive Committee, to ask will these changes really improve access to dental care for patients across the country, or is it all too little, too late?

In addition to reflecting on the NHS England Dental Reform webinar being held at the end of July, Nigel and Eddie discuss the latest position on UDA values, the scope of practice for dental therapists and the recent 4.5% pay award and its likely impact on recruitment and retention in the industry. Nigel questions Eddie on what the announcement really means for the profession and what the future is likely to hold for NHS dentistry.

Nigel also invites questions and thoughts from the audience throughout the webinar. To view Eddie’s answers to the questions that there wasn’t time to get to, click here.
