Falling numbers of state dentists in England has led to some people taking extreme measures, including extracting their own teeth, according to a new study released Monday.Or they forgo the miracle of state sponsored dental care and go to private care.
Almost half of all dentists -- 45 percent -- said they no longer take NHS patients, while 41 percent said they had an "excessive" workload. Twenty-nine percent said their clinic had problems recruiting or retaining dentists.Oh, gee let's see... the working conditions suck, the money is no good, so no one is entering or staying in the profession. What a shocker. [via Queer Conservative]
