I'm a bit confused about the current dental contract. Is this still the 2006 deal that there were problems with? Using UDA's with different bands etc.
Do dentists get paid the same for 2 fillings as they do for 10 under current contract? eg 2 UDAs
Any info would be uselful, thanks

Yes, you're all right there, dentists get paid in the banding system, so for example.. extraction and fillings fall in the same band, so you'd pay the same costs for either 1 filling or 3 fillings and 2 extractions.... Not a totally fair system but hey ho!
Also because fillings are in band 2, everything in band 1 is included in band 2 tier
