06 Aug Why Now Is The Time To Join The British Association of Private Dentistry
The narrative from day one has been clear and it’s been consistent. The narrative is simple and it’s about the health of the public, and good health makes the world a better place, that’s why I adopted dentistry nearly 12 years ago.
Even as somebody who is by comparison a bystander, and ever since the initial webinar from the Office of The Chief Dental Officer in April, I have recognised the urgent need for the profession to have a clearer, louder and more purposeful voice than ever before. It seems to me that the BAPD now is that voice and with your support will continue to be that voice.
You might be sceptical of course and that’s OK with me too, but let me put my cards on the table and declare that I have a vested interest in the BAPD; The world will not be a better place if we have less dental practices.
We will have less dental practices if the commercial realities of questionable restrictions on trade are not challenged. We will have less dental practices if the CDO / GDC / CQC merry go round ever starts turning again. We will have less dental practices if dentists are kept in the dark about last minute SOP’s and we will have less dental practices if the BAPD loses its voice.
We don’t need less dental practices. Vested interest declared.
