Growing numbers of constituents have got in touch in recent weeks to raise their concerns about access to NHS dental care and orthodontics. I’ve heard horror stories of 12-18 month waits for kids to even receive their first orthodontic assessment, and others are struggling to book routine appointments even as oral decay levels soar.
I’ve written to the new Health Secretary Sajid Javid MP to raise my concerns and urge the Government to act. Read my letter here.
If this issue is affecting you, do get in touch with me directly. It’s really helpful to hear constituents’ experiences.
