More Than 10,000 Receive Dental Treatment From Students via NHS

Posted by admin | On: Mar 28 2013

If you are living in the Devon and Cornwall area and have received any NHS dental treatment in the last five years it is possible that you may have received that treatment from a student after it was revealed that that more than 10,000 people had received treatment from students at Plymouth University.

The students who provided the treatments were always under the supervision of qualified dentists.

Some patients are OK with the idea with one man saying he doesn’t mind being the guinea pig as the treatment he receive a first class treatment..

Prof Christopher Tredwin, Head of PCMD, said patients get “routine, high quality, fantastic dental care”.

Bridget Sampson, director of Primary Care for NHS Cornwall and Isles of Scilly, said : We supported the creation of the dental school as we recognised the benefits of training people locally in the hope they may decide to remain in Cornwall to practice.”
