The Scottish Executive has introduced a number of measures to recruit and retain dentists within NHS general dental services. These include the availability of grants under the Scottish Dental Access Initiative for dentists wishing to set up or expand NHS practices in areas of poor access or high oral health need and a package of recruitment and retention measures. The recruitment and retention package includes payments to vocational trainees taking up vocational training in designated areas, including Grampian, and payments to dentists entering substantive general dental practice in designated areas within three months of completion of training.
