A recent article in the BBC highlighted the difficulty some patients are finding when trying to register with a dentist. According to a BBC News analysis of 2,500 practices, only half were accepting new NHS patients.
Unfortunately this is a problem experienced by patients across the country, and can become a real issue for patients when they present with a dental emergency. The NHS does ensure that the majority of patients will be able to register with a dentist, but we feel digital advancements can help further to meet this demand.
Dentists are working incredibly hard to ensure patient receive the care they deserve. With the help of digital health, the Tooth Fairy app is a great tool in the armoury for dentists to meet this critical demand. Dental problems can become debilitating and an emergency dentist through your mobile can provide management and advice in times harmony or pain.
