Risen Dentists Income and New Contract Result in Brits Getting Treatment Abroad
Following the NHS Information Centre revealing the overwhelming levels of dentist salaries, many Brit’s have been left fuming and seeking treatment in other countries.
The high dentist salaries coupled with news of the drill & fill practices are sure to increase the dental debate and are resulting in patients looking further afield for treatment.
Since the notorious dental contracts came into being in 2006 around seven million British residents have failed to find an NHS dentist, meaning an increased number of people are now seeking treatment options overseas.
Many treatments are simply not available on the NHS and most cannot afford soaring private costs.
Simon Purchall of Smile Savers, said: “The treatments that are available are drawn out over a multitude of appointments, in a practice known as drill & fill.”
One alternative is to fly overseas for treatment, with Budapest a popular destination.
Previously, Hungarian dentists are better trained than their UK counterparts, and treatment costs are very small with no compromise on quality.
Smile Savers Hungary has led the field in dental tourism for over five years and offers a customised approach to helping customers find first class dental care in Budapest.
The team will organise everything the patient need from the treatment, to hotels, airport transfers, x-rays and aftercare.
The high dentist wages is set to fuel an ongoing dentistry debate and it remains to be seen whether the new contract is going to be accepted by all member of society.Join this Discussion
