Currently many patients in the UK cannot afford dental care, because it is too expensive for them. In addition, with almost half of NHS dentists reportedly closed to new patients amid a funding crisis, people suffering agonising tooth problems are left with nowhere to go. According to aid workers the oral health of children here is far worse than in
 poverty-stricken parts of Africa. Many are now being treated for free by the Dentaid charity that normally operates in Third World countries. There is no reason why dental care should be treated differently from other health services. NHS values state that "commitment to quality of care" and that "everyone counts". Parliament should mandate dental care to be universally available and free at the point of delivery for everybody, not just those who are officially on income support or other type of allowance.
