A voice for all in dentistry

at the UK COVID-19 Inquiry

Who we are

FTA Law have launched The COVID-19 Inquiry Dental Alliance to allow the opportunity for people from across the dental sector to be given a voice in the inquiry. The purpose is to raise questions, demand answers and help to shape policy for the future to prevent mistakes from being repeated.

Our mission

The Government has launched a public inquiry into the Covid 19 pandemic. This is a major investigation on a matter of public concern which seeks to address three key questions:

What happened?
Why did it happen and who is to blame?
What can be done to prevent this happening again?


The inquiry has the ability to compel witnesses to attend and allows for core participation of groups affected. Being included in the inquiry as a core participant gives the right to full disclosure and to assign legal representation. 

The pandemic had a particularly unique effect on the dental sector, which was subject to the same rules and regulations as the healthcare sector generally, but operates in a completely different way. 

The Alliance covers a broad spectrum of private and NHS dentistry in England and Wales and represents the interests of Practice Owners, Associate Dentists, Practice Managers, Hygienists, Therapists, Technicians, Nurses and other dental team members. Our aim is to provide a voice for the many in dentistry and to be representative of the whole sector.
