We are aware that NHS Dental Band Charges will be increasing by 5% from the 14th December 2020.

At Dental Focus, our #1 priority is to keep our clients websites compliant with the GDC, CQC, ICO & NHS. We will be working on updating the NHS Dental Charges for all affected clients on the Client Service Plan (CSP) and Hosting & Compliance Plan.

Please allow up to 48 hours from the 14th for these changes to be applied, you may need to hard refresh your browser to see the latest changes (guidance below).

If you find your NHS Dental Band Charges have not increased, please email the Client Service Team at update@dentalfocus.com who will help you as a priority.

If you don’t see the updates on your website, you may need to hard refresh the page (please press Ctrl F5 Windows or Command ‘R’ on Mac). Web browsers sometimes save files to help pages load more quickly, so sometimes you will see an old version of a web page instead of the most recent one.

Improving Dental Care and Oral Health

“Dentistry was one of the founding pillars of the NHS at its inception in 1948, and NHS dental services have made a significant contribution to the improvement in the nation’s oral health since that time.”

We have a growing population with a longer life expectancy; therefore patients’ expectations for their dental care are higher. Dental patients are becoming a lot more sophisticated, as they have their own idea about what quality care means, and when and how they receive it.

Barry Cockcroft CBE, NHS England’s Chief Dental Officer and an Honorary Fellow of the Faculty of General Dental Practice outlines how the world of dental care has changed in a recent article published on NHS England’s news page.

One of the many interesting points outlined in this article is are we aware of the contribution that dentists now make in identifying people at risk of diseases such as oral cancers?
