The BBC reports that a new type of ‘social’ dentist has opened in Derbyshire which organisers claim could solve the shortage of NHS dentists across the UK. The Derbyshire practice is a provident society providing NHS-type care but is a not-for-profit organisation, with any profits going to community projects. Organisers said the structure could provide an alternative format for dentistry, solving the NHS shortage. Genesis Dental Care plans to open two more surgeries in Lincolnshire.
This is an interesting and innovative solution to the current shortage of NHS dentists and dental services. PRimage specialise in healthcare communications, and has an interest and experience in the dental health market. Judy Viitanen and the team wish Genesis Dental Care every success!
