    I agree. These are the forgotten people who are living in pain because they can't get to see their dentist. This can also be very detrimental to their health if people have bad teeth and infections.

    Absolutely no reason when dentists cant be open when the proper precautions can easily be taken. At a minimum for people that actually need urgent work done

    Yes, there needs to be some sort of dental service provided. If Doctors can provide treatment whilst wearing PPE surely dentists could do the same.

    Dentist need to be open so many people suffering due to the closure. Surely they can operate safely.

    Lots of people desperate for dental care. Surely it is possible for dentists to work on people who do not have covid 19. Of course this would mean testing with a quick accurate result.

    We need to be able to help our patients. We have PPE and the training to be open.

    Agree with dentists being made available. We are back in 1950s with this dentistry. Even just for more expanded emergency procedures other than extracting teeth!! People are in discomfort and cant rely on pain killers for weeks/months. Nor is the use of temporary filling kits which as name suggests “temporary” and do not last! SG is setting population up for possibly more future issues. Appears that SG are solely focussed on COVID19 which FM said herself is “a relatively mild illness for vast majority” and therefore the rest of healthcare is out of window.
