Government plans to modernise NHS dentistry

Government plans to modernise NHS dentistry as dental pilot project is extended Date of article: 09-Oct-12 Article By: Rachel Baker, News Editor Spitting after brushing your teeth instead of rinsing, can help teeth to absorb fluoride from the toothpaste and protect your mouth from disease, is the key message being given by dentists as the Government announces it will extend its dental pilot scheme. The scheme involves dentists giving simple tips to help patients prevent dental problems before they appear. It is hoped this pilot scheme will modernise NHS dentistry and provide the evidence needed to develop the new dental contract. Since last September, dentists from 70 practices have been trialling new ways of working and about 25 extra practices will now join the expanding pilot programme.... Bit risky swallowing all that fluoride?
