NHS Dentistry the Government reacts

After several years in power and changing NHS dentistry contracts it has been announced that there will be a review of NHS dentistry.

We at ND wonder how long this will take and what its conclusions will be?

Surely the truth as to who has created this mess is self evident to all apart from those ordering the review?

We await its august findings (next spring) with interest but doubt it will decrease our increased dental workload in general practice or in A&E. We do note that the review is being lead by a dentist. Surely that is a mistake? Would not a physiotherapist be better qualified in the same way that a surgeon can reform general practice?
