New Study Shows Urgent Need to Tackle Oral Health Post-COVID

There has never been a more important time for highly-skilled dentists and dental technicians. Find out more about our clinical dental technician course…

The COVID-19 pandemic has meant that a lot of important things have been put on the backburner. From weddings and celebrations to important healthcare check-ups, many people’s lives have been on pause.

Dental care has suffered the same fate, with many dentist surgeries closing as the country goes into lockdown, or running with restrictions in place. With only emergency dental appointments being prioritised, the nation’s oral health has declined.

A recent study conducted for World Oral Health Day (in Europe and South East Asia) reveals:

30% of people have visited dentists less often than usual due to COVID

43% of people said they were worried about virus transmission at the dentist

Despite this, 64% plan to visit their dentist in the coming months
