Rejected petition Open dentists as a matter of priority and in line with the plans in England.

I have had a tooth infection for more than 2 months and have been told it needs draining but that dentists are not reopening until January!

Why was this petition rejected?

There’s already a petition about this issue. We cannot accept a new petition when we already have one about a very similar issue, or if the Petitions Committee has considered one in the last year.

Another petition about re-opening full general dental services is already collecting signatures:

You are more likely to get action on this issue if you sign and share a single petition.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards
