Petition Regulate Dental Costs to Improve Accessibility and Reduce Health Consequences
Over 50% of Islanders don't visit the dentist due to high costs, leading to serious health problems. Neglecting dental care can cause tooth decay, gum disease, and oral infections. High costs drive islanders to seek treatment abroad, risking their health. It's time for regulation.
The Jersey government can learn from the experiences of other countries such as the Netherlands, where dental costs are regulated, resulting in increased access to care and improved oral health outcomes.
