Fear of dental visits stopping Brits from getting oral care
Updated: Mar 2
A Third of Brits fear the Dentist's chair
New research conducted by Centre for Dentistry has found that a third of Brits say they fear the dentist’s chair and a 79% say they are put off receiving dental advice. While we are fairly happy to visit GPs and local hospitals for medical attention, visiting the dentist attracts an undeserved stigma with experts believing fear, time and cost hinders Britons from attending a dental practice.
With the cost of dental treatment rising, with recent cost increases, and the often unexpected nature of dental costs, dental insurance provides a perfect way to spread this cost and ensure that you receive preventative dental care too. Not worrying about the cost of dental care and being able to plan regular check-ups can save you money in the long run as you should maintain good oral health and a relationship with your dentist. Only one in 10 UK adults meet the criteria for excellent oral health, so why not make sure you are a one in 10 with a dental insurance plan from Get Dental Plans?
