Do-It-Yourself Dentistry in England

BBC NEWS -- Millions of people in England have resorted to do-it-yourself dentistry, a survey by consumer magazine Which? suggests. Since a new dental contract was introduced in 2006 there has been growing concern over access to care.

Mike Penning, the shadow health minister, said: "It is a scandal that millions of people are resorting to pulling out their own teeth as a result of Labour's disastrous mismanagement of National Health Service dentistry.

"These survey results are a direct consequence of the introduction of Labour's botched dental contract which has left millions without an National Health Service dentist."

MP: But at least pliers sales are booming.
