Prevention is better than cure –

Discussing the public health burden of oral health diseases and health inequalities

Monday 27th January 2020, 7:00 to 8:30pm

House of Commons

Special Guest speaker Jo Churchill MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Health

Why is oral health isolated from traditional health care and policy discussions when it is the third most expensive health condition behind diabetes and cardiovascular disease?

Despite being largely preventable, dental diseases places a significant burden on the NHS. There were 102,663 hospital admissions due to tooth decay among children aged under ten between April 2015 and March 2018.

We have assembled an expert panel, including politicians, policy makers and clinicians to debate this vital topic.

The meeting will be co-chaired by Dr Sejal Bhansali (Chair, Conservative Dentists) and Professor Roger Williams CBS (Chair, Conservative Health)

More information about the panellists and applications for tickets coming soon
