NHS Grampian Issues Public Concern Notice

As per reports, it has been revealed that NHS Grampian has written letters to 900 dental patients over infection fear. It has been recently found that a dentist at the Bridge of Don Dental Clinic in Aberdeen was practicing without license.

A Grampian Police spokeswoman was of the view that though infection rate is quite low, they have been inspecting the reports of the unregistered doctors. The General Dental Council said that it is a criminal offence to practise without holding a license.

Practice owner Dr Ronnie Barogiannis said, “There is one dentist registered with the General Dental Council working at the clinic now. If there is a police investigation we will fully co-operate with all inquiries”.

NHS Grampian has issued public awareness message that there is low risk of infection, but they should get their teeth properly checked. They have also started NHS 24 helpline on which people can contact between 8am and 10pm and sort out their queries.

Clinic owner Dr Ronnie Barogiannis said that they have been co-operating with police and will make sure that no such incident gets repeated. He further affirmed that they have pledged to provide world-class quality dental services to people in need.
