Our children deserve to be able to see a dentist

The staggering rise in dental deserts has left far too many people struggling to get an NHS dental appointment when they need to.

“It is heartbreaking that people are being left waiting in pain for months or even years for the dental care they need.

Many are being forced to shell out thousands of pounds on private dental care, while some are even turning in desperation to DIY dentistry.

We need to see action now to make sure everyone can see a dentist on the NHS when they need to. That must start with investing the cash earmarked for NHS dentistry that has scandalously gone unspent, and reforming the broken system that has driven dentists away from offering NHS appointments.
