Webinar: The impacts of COVID-19 on dentistry
Our live webinar on Tuesday 23 February 2021, featured panels of external speakers discussing some of the key themes that we identified in our research into the impact that COVID-19 has had on dentistry, and considered how to address the challenges to come.
Panels considered the three themes of:
- Access to dentistry and working to address health inequalities.
- Supporting financial and workforce pressures.
- Bridging the road to recovery.
