Dentistry Question Time – tune in tonight for the live debate on the future of NHS dentistry

by Gaby Bissett

In a new venture, Dentistry Question Time will give you the chance to direct your questions at an expert panel. 

Dentistry Question Time will welcome some of the profession’s biggest names to debate the hottest topics in dentistry right now.

And you will have the chance to put forward your own questions for the panel to consider.

Our first set of speakers will discuss one of the most pertinent topics of the last 12 months – is there a future for NHS dentistry after COVID-19?

We are hosting the live debate today (Tuesday 2 March at 7pm), which will run for two hours. The panel includes:

  • Simon Thackery – private dentist based in Nottinghamshire
  • Eddie Crouch – chair of the British Dental Association (BDA)
  • Clare Robinson – NHS dentist based in Liverpool
  • Nigel Jones – sales and marketing director at Practice Plan.

Great opportunity

‘The last year has thrown an abundance of unforeseen challenges at the dental profession,’ Julian English, editorial director at FMC, says.

‘In particular, there’s a lot of questions surrounding NHS dentistry and how the pandemic will shape its direction. The first round table – Is there a future for NHS dentistry after COVID-19? – is a must-see for both NHS and private dental teams as we head into 2021.

‘From dentist to hygienist, it is also a great opportunity to ask the questions that you want answered.

‘We hope Dentistry Question Time will ignite some healthy debate, with a focus on the most relevant issues facing the profession right now.’
