BDA warns effects of rising dental service costs in UK

London, Apr 24 (Prensa Latina) Nearly a quarter of people in UK avoid visiting dental clinics because of the National Health Service (NHS)´s increased treatment cost, the British Dental Association (BDA) warned Monday.

The Association reported an 8.5% surge in dental charges and urged Conservative ministers not to use the rising figures as justification for reducing the dentistry budget.

According to Eddie Crouch, Chairman of the British Dental Association, current increased dental charge “will not put a penny into NHS dentistry. Unfortunately, growing health inequality is a price this government seems willing to pay to cover the cuts.”

This issue is not a partisan issue, and he assured that the public warns how the execution of civil servants is not “the avenue to finance a central part of our health service.”

According to a recent survey by pollster YouGov, 38% of Britains believe dentistry should be free and fully funded by the government, through general taxation.
