Oscar Castro inaugurates the FEDCAR Spring General Assembly in Barcelona

Barcelona, ​​27 May 2016.- The President of the Spanish Dental Association, Oscar Castro, officially opened in Barcelona the Spring General Assembly of the Federation of European Dental Competent Authorities and Regulators (FEDCAR), which main objectives are to promote patient safety across Europe and a high standard of oral care through the exchange of information and a proper regulation of the dental sector.

During the official opening, Óscar Castro explained in detail the challenges and threats that Spanish Dentistry is facing, among which he indicated the professional plethora, the merchandization of Dentistry and the lack of regulation in health advertising as the issues that most concern to Spanish dentists.

Óscar Castro also stated that the situation in Spain is particularly complicated because of the exponential increase in the number of dentists registered in recent years (from 10,340 dentists in 1990 to 40,000 expected for 2020, which represents an increase of 284%) caused by the lack of control mechanisms to access to private Universities. In addition, dental care in Spain is significantly lower than the average of the EU, since in our country only 43% of citizens go to the dentist once a year, compared with the 57% of other European countries. These two questions have influenced decisively in the job insecurity in the sector, "which has pushed many Spanish dentists to emigrate to other countries in search of a job stable and of quality", he said.

Moreover, Óscar Castro criticized the lack of strict regulation of health advertising in Spain, which has stressed the merchandization of the dental sector. "In Spain there are webpages that directly seek and compare dental clinics considering only the price of treatments. This is just another step in the merchandization we are living: no matter the experience, training or professional skills; the price is now the only value and this is unacceptable" he settled.

In this regard, he has called for the commitment of the Spanish authorities and the country's next government to fulfill the mandate of the Congress of Deputies which recently approved two non-legislative proposals designed to amend the existing legislation in health advertising at national level.

Finally, Oscar Castro referred to the situation of the oral health of the Spaniards, and insisted on the need to involve the State in the provision of dental services.
