Dentist income 'up to £96,000'

NHS dentist pay in England is expected to average up to £96,000, according to government figures to be published today.

Income is thought to have risen by at least 13 per cent since the new dental contract was introduced two years ago.

The contracts were meant to improve NHS access but a recent study suggested that fewer patients were being treated.

Last month figures from the NHS Information Centre showed that fewer patients were being treated, despite more dentists joining the NHS after the new contract.
