Dentistry news UK- Why money alone won’t fix NHS dentistry

Neel Kothari explains why NHS dentistry needs more than just money if it is to work.

Whilst there is no doubt that years of below inflation pay rises has left NHS dentistry in a precarious position, in my opinion the issues extend far beyond funding and cannot be fixed with money alone.

Whilst we can analyse the system from many different angles, there is one perspective that I would like to explore in this article, which is whether NHS dentistry is still fun.

This may seem like a rather puerile angle, but when I speak to NHS dentists, nurses, receptionists, etc, a central theme begins to emerge which is that for many – they simply don’t enjoy working in the NHS or feel that it offers them a chance at doing meaningful work.

Why is this important? Well, recent research published by Marcus Buckingford in the Harvard Business Review informs us that pay is a factor in retaining staff, but not quite as significant as other factors.
