Dentists should give patients advice about eating more healthily and cutting down an alcohol, while they are carrying out a check-up, a new report suggests.Think-tanks said those sitting in the dentist's chair were "perfectly placed" to absorb tips about how to live more healthily.The new report from the Nuffield Trust and the Health Foundation suggests dentists should issue advice on healthy eating, alcohol consumption and giving up smoking.Enrolling dentists in efforts to improve the health of the nation could result in reductions in obesity and diabetes, it said.The analysis found drastic differences between the north and south of England when it comes to good dental health, as well as a big divide between the rich and the poor.The report found people from the most deprived backgrounds were twice as likely to be admitted to hospital for dental work than those that were better off in 2015.
