16. Dental Treatment - Mask Wearing


As with medical treatment, Dental treatment is regarded in the same way.  Many people are being refused medical treatment unless they wear a mask to the surgery etc., this is ILLEGAL and as such any dental practice that is enforcing this is in breach of the Coronavirus Act 2020 in which people are exempt by the government from wearing a mask.  They are also breaching your human rights - UNESCO Article 6.1 Cosent and Discriminating against you due to your hidden disabilities (Equality Act 2010) as such you should send this letter to your Dentist if they are instigating illegal acts against you, they are unable by LAW to refuse you treatment based on whether you wear a mask or not.  This is Discrimination at its worst and can be liable for prosecution in a court of law with large fines.  Copy and paste the following letter, fill in the areas with italics and send to your Dentist reminding of their legal duties.

To Whom it may concern

I wish it to be known and understood that following your communication regarding my next dental appointment in which the  Dental Surgery insists I wear a mask to attend for treatment.

I wish to inform the surgery that I am exempt” by the government from wearing a mask or shield due to my hidden disabilities, and by refusing me necessary treatment unless I wear a mask/shield  is in direct contravention of the Coronavirus Act 2020 in which the government have supplied me with an exemption card and to which every person it is shown to must adhere to my exemption.  By refusing my exemption you are also discriminating against me and my Human Rights  (Article 6.1 UK law and Article 6.1 & Article 14.2(a) UNESCO bioethics human rights 2005 Charter) and in contravention of the Equalities Act 2010 – Discrimination & Harassment - Section 13 & 15 -  whereby it is against the law to refuse me necessary medical & dental treatment due to discriminatory behaviour against my disability.

Please note: That contravention of the Equalities Act 2010 -Discrimination holds a 'personal' fine of up to £9,000 for any person's actions.

I have sought legal advice and have been informed that no person can refuse me medical treatment based solely on my disability and inability to wear a mask for health reasons and your refusing me treatment in direct contravention of my Human Rights and are liable for prosecution.

I look forward to receiving a new appointment for the procedure to take place without the need of wearing a mask/shield (Shields are for splashback chemicals/liquids – not used in medical procedures). I trust the nurses in question will be dealt with in accordance with the law and my rights.
