MPs and Peers join dental colleagues at APPG Christmas reception

29 November 2016

The Christmas reception of the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Dentistry and Oral Health took place on Tuesday 29 November in the House of Commons. The event promoted good oral health and the celebration of Christmas in a way that won’t do damage to teeth. Attending Parliamentarians and key figures from the world of British dentistry heard speeches from the Chair of the APPG Sir Paul Beresford MP, the BDA’s Chair Mick Armstrong, the sponsors of the event Wrigley, and the new Health Minister responsible for dentistry David Mowat MP.

The Minister said that the oral health improvements we have seen in recent years were a testament to the extremely important work dentists do, but stressed more needed to be done to tackle persistent inequalities in access and outcomes.
