Earl Howe questioned on dental reforms

18 January 2011

Earl Howe, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State with responsibility for dentistry, this week (18 January) set out his aspirations for the Government’s reforms to NHS dentistry in England to a meeting of the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Dentistry. The meeting, which was attended by MPs, peers and stakeholders from the dental family, also saw discussion of the how proposals in the Health and Social Care Bill will change commissioning arrangements and what impact proposals in the Public Health White Paper could have on the way dentistry is organised.

The APPG event also saw discussion of issues including problems with the current dental contract, regulation and decontamination. The BDA is the elected Secretariat to the group.
