Dental & Covid – a Tale of Two Cities?

How has the pandemic changed relationships between providers, their employees and those for whom they provide care?
In partnership with Charles Russell Speechlys. Covid has split dental between the NHS and private sector, between practices still being paid for UDAs and with ongoing goodwill, and private practices looking to furlough, to keep open for emergency patients and manage through to a relaxation of lockdown. This webinar examined the outlook for the sector, the legal risks on a return to work and how to protect your team, patients and business and financial implications.

Investment and market consolidation suggest an optimistic future for UK dentistry market.

The UK market for dentistry is estimated to be worth £7.1 billion as of 2017/18, representing real terms growth of 0.2% during the year (after taking account of CPI). £3.6 billion is attributable to the private sector, and £3.5 billion to NHS spend.

This growth is driven by demand for private dentistry, as cosmetic dentistry and facial aesthetics, hygiene services and other specialist treatments continue to be popular. There are also an increasing number of NHS patients paying for private treatment upgrades as part of their dentistry care plan.

At the same time, adults seen for dentistry on the NHS suffered its first decline for many years, and there has been a reduction in the number of exempt patients following a shift in welfare benefits and tighter monitoring of exemptions. In addition, fewer high value treatments are paid for by the NHS, while there has been a shift towards low value check ups, suggesting that the message of prevention being better than the cure is reaching a wider audience.
