UK ‘poor dental health’
The poor state of the UK’s teeth does not become apparent until compared with the US, it has been claimed.
Commenting on his Daily Telegraph blog, journalist Philip Sherwell explained that he had never considered how "dentally-challenged" the UK was before moving to the US.
"I confess that I now find myself checking out the state of someone’s teeth as much as I do their haircut or choice of clothes," he remarked.
Tad Safran, correspondent for the Times newspaper, recently conducted an informal poll of US and UK women and claimed that Americans spend around $700 (£350) per month on beauty maintenance such as teeth whitening treatments, facials, manicures.
However, women in the UK were found to spend £700 on beauty throughout the year, he said.
Elixir News recently reported that people living in London spend more money on cosmetic dentistry than any other city in the UK.Join this Discussion
