Following a three-year review of dental education and training, Health Education England set out recommendations in the Advancing Dental Care Review. These aim to tackle recruitment and retention challenges, attracting and retaining more dentists and dental care professionals in the National Health Service. These recommendations will be implemented through the Dental Education Reform Programme.
