Dentistry needs a safety net – support the BDA’s initiative.

The BDA continues to step up to the plate on behalf of dentists in the UK. All members will have had an email from the BDA today asking them to write to their MP regarding the fall out from the Corona Virus Pandemic.

“The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is being felt across our profession.  
Many colleagues will have their own stories, of practices struggling to stay afloat, and personal hardship. 
We are speaking up for dentists directly with ministers and officials. You can play your part by sharing that story with your MP and asking them to take action on your behalf. 
We’ve pre-populated a letter for you that will be sent directly to the MP in your postal code. All you have to do is add in your personal circumstance at the top. 

Our immediate priority is quite rightly on supporting the healthcare effort where we can. But we also need our services to still be there for patients in future. 
1 in 5 practices say they will struggle to keep their heads above water this month. And the vast majority of self-employed colleagues will get nothing from the Chancellor’s deal.
We need to see a safety net in place for every practice, and every practitioner.
We’ve been speaking out to government and the press. And your voice can help make a difference.”
