Dealing with advanced dental health issues is tricky for many, but if you’re not careful, you might find yourself paying the price of not getting the proper care you need.
A new paper published in the Lancet has analysed how the NHS handles the needs of dental students.
It found that the number of dental courses offered is falling rapidly, and is in a serious crisis.
It says that this is largely because there is a lack of funding for dental students, and that students are being forced to undertake more unpaid work to pay for their courses.
What is the ‘advanced dental care’ model?
The study looked at the dental industry and the NHS in the UK, and found that there are only five dental colleges in England that offer an advanced course.
These are:St John’s College, Cambridge, Cambridge University, University of Bath, and the University of Leicester.
The research looked at a range of dental outcomes, from how many patients are served by a dental clinic to how well dental care is delivered to the patient.
The study also looked at where the dental students were enrolled and what kind of care they received.
It found that in 2011-12, there were a total of 1,200 students enrolled at these colleges.
Of these, 539 were enrolled in dental courses.
Of those, 862 were working full-time in their dentistry degree.
There were also 922 students who were studying dental care as part of a degree, with just 2,200 being full-timers.
The researchers then looked at how these students fared on the NHS.
They found that students at these courses received less than half the dental care that students from other types of dental care receive, and many of them were not receiving any type of dental treatment at all.
This meant that students were suffering a higher level of dental health problems.
The authors also found that graduates of the dental colleges were more likely to be enrolled in hospitalised services, with only 15% of those graduating having seen a dentist in the last year.
The researchers say this is likely because there are a lack in funding to provide dental students with the dental services that they need.
The government also spends a lot of money on NHS hospitals, but this is not being used effectively to care for students.
The report also found there were also high levels of inequality between students and their dental classmates.
The study found that people who graduated from dental colleges earned between £12,000 and £23,000 less than students from similar universities.
It also found a lack to identify dental students in the NHS, with less than 4% of people aged 18-24 being in a dental college.
What are the findings?
The authors say that this could be because the NHS is not doing enough to fund dental students as they are left without a dental practice, and they are not receiving the dental education that they might have been expected to receive.
They say that it’s the lack of dental education for dental education, and not a lack or lack of funds, that is behind the increasing rates of dental student suffering.
They also say that the NHS needs to improve the education and training for dental assistants, and to support those who want to go into dentistry.
