The Impact of Brexit on Dental Care
There is some uncertainty due to Brexit, including in the healthcare industry. How this will affect dental care is still unknown, particularly for people over 60.
The accessibility of dentists could be one potential problem. Many dentists in the UK are citizens of other EU nations. There might be a longer wait for an appointment if Brexit causes fewer EU dentists to work in the UK.
However, the NHS’s core organisation will stay the same. This indicates that the criteria for free dental care—benefits or low income—will remain the same.
Despite the unknowns, it is evident that the NHS continues to prioritise offering everyone access to affordable dental care.
