Direct access to dental care professionals!

This is a message from BSDHT president Sally
I am delighted to let you know that the Office of Fair Trading (OFT)  published it’s report -  Dentistry, an OFT market study, on Tuesday this week.
The report was commissioned back in September 2011 and the research team has spent the last eight months gathering evidence from stakeholders, including BSDHT, plus patient groups, dental professionals, organisations and regulators.  This process also included 3,400 face to face interviews.  The Society was one of the groups that participated in discussions on direct access along with other key groups.
Key recommendations and actions of the report are:
Reform of the NHS dental contract in England to facilitate greater competition.
  1. Improved provision of information to facilitate active, informed patient choices.
  2. Improved patient access to redress and a simpler complaints system.
  3. Direct access to dental care professionals.
Please contact me if you want to know more!

Hi, this is my first Blogg and I hope it will develop and prove of interest to my followers.  My colleague hygienists tell me I am a pioneer in the profession as I have served and spoken to and for the hygienist association, developed a periodontal brush and opened my own periodontal referral practice.
The reason for this history is to give you an idea that I am devoted to my profession, the job I do and this means to my patients and those to become my patients. You might have noticed a poster about spitting blood when you brush your teeth is a warning, and so it is.  About one in ten people develop serious gum disease in middle or later life if not before. Apart from causing tooth loss there are links to heart disease and bowel cancer as well as to lower birth weight babies. My promise is I will stop your bleeding gums or return your fees. That promise means you don't lose your teeth and your money! See me at
