Chief Dental Officer to visit Torrington Dental Practice (August 2017)

1st August 2017

The team at Torrington Dental Practice are excited to announce that Sara Hurley, the Chief Dental Officer (CDO) for England, will be visiting the practice on the 19th September. The CDO will be attending Peninsula Dental School the previous day to receive an honorary award from the University of Plymouth and has agreed to travel to North Devon to see what we get up to in Rural North Devon!

The practice were very fortunate to have the previous Chief Dental Officer, Barry Cockcroft, visit the practice in 2005 when he met staff and patients to discuss the challenges facing NHS dentistry. Sadly many of these challenges still exist with increasing demands on the dental team despite chronic underfunding. This will be an opportunity to discuss these issues with the Chief Dental Officer, but will also allow the practice to showcase some of the unique projects which we are currently delivering at Torrington Dental Practice.

Toni Batty, Practice Manager at Torrington Dental Practice, is looking forward to welcoming the Chief Dental Officer, and explained:

“It is very exciting to have the CDO visit the practice and the whole team are looking forward to meeting her. As a practice, we are committed to delivering high-quality care to our patients, but every year this becomes more of a challenge under the NHS with the constant drive for efficiency savings. We welcome the opportunity to highlight these difficulties with the CDO, in addition to telling her about some of the exciting community-based projects which we have been working on.”

I have always felt confident with the level of care and skill all the staff at the dental practice show. I can honestly say it is by far the best dentist I have been to – which is why I keep coming back.
