Roz McMullan re-elected
Roz McMullan is to continue in her role as chair of Northern Ireland Council of the BDA.
McMullen, who previously practised as a consultant orthodontist in the Western Health and Social Care Trust, also sits as a non-voting member on the Northern Ireland Dental Practice and Salaried Dentists Committees.
She said: “I am honoured and delighted to be re-elected. Dentistry in Northern Ireland continues to experience profound challenges; confronting the treatment needs of an aging dentate population along with pressure for domiciliary care visits, more patients with complex health care needs impacting on oral health, and unacceptable levels of hospital admissions for children with oral health problems.
“Dentists in Northern Ireland are labouring under an antique oral health strategy that’s frankly unfit for purpose. Now, more than ever, patients need a dental service which meets their increasing complex care needs and we look forward to working with partners to ensure that both dentists’ and patients’ needs are fully met.”
