Still Not Enough Dentists in England

Solution: Import Dentists from Eastern Europe

It’s hardly news that the UK’s National Health Service is not meeting the dental needs of most residents. Amidst all the confusion, a few bold entrepreneurs are fixing to make a handsome profit by offering private dental care to those who can’t get in to see an NHS dentist.

Fergus and Judith Wilson own property valued in the hundreds of millions of dollars, and they’re planning to increase their fortune even further by opening a chain of private 24-hour dental clinics across the UK that will charge less than other private competitors.

With a serious shortage of dentists in the UK, the Wilsons have come up with an innovative way to staff their clinics: they’re planning to recruit up to 1,000 Eastern European dentists. Their first clinic will open soon near Kent, boasting an impressive roster of 150 dentists.

Historically, it’s been challenging for many UK citizens to get dental care through the NHS. In many areas, it’s next impossible to find a dentist who’ll take on a new NHS patient.

So the NHS invested £65,000 to create places for 10,000 new patients, but the VI Dental Centre in Bridlington still has 2,000 spaces available. And marketing-minded staff have turned to the internet, using sites like Facebook and Twitter.

DIY Dentistry: Brit Yanks 13 Teeth with Pliers

Another horrifying tale of do-it-yourself dentistry from the UK…

The 42-year-old veteran couldn’t find a dentist to accept his military insurance. After seeing an army dentist in 2003, he said he tried unsuccessfully to get appointments with 30 dentists, none of whom would take government patients.

But he couldn’t very well live with the terrible pain in his teeth. So, over the past two years, he has pulled out 13 of his upper teeth, leaving him with only 2 remaining teeth in his upper arch.
