Memorandum submitted by the Dental Practitioners
Association (HO 01)
On the following issues:
Government policy on licensing of homoeopathic
Government policy on the funding of homoeopathy
through the NHS
the evidence base on homoeopathic products
1. No homoeopathic products should be licensed.
2. There should be no funding for homoeopathy
through the NHS.
3. As far as we are aware there is no evidence
base to support the use of homoeopathic products in dentistry
or in the NHS as a whole. Any apparent effects are entirely explainable
as the placebo effect.
