Read more from Business Insider:The research is based on a survey of about 10,000 dental and orthopedical surgeons across the UK.

The survey revealed the following:More than half (53%) of the surgeons surveyed said that the NHS should not be able to require dental care for patients with certain conditions, such as diabetes, asthma, or cancer.
Surgeons in England and Wales are able to offer dental care to a range of patients including:The majority of surgeons surveyed (62%) said that dental care should not only be available but also free, as this would help patients manage their own health and protect the NHS’s funding.
More than a third (35%) of surgeons agreed that patients should not have to pay for the treatment they require.
Surgeon confidence in the NHS is low, according to the survey, with fewer than 10% of surgeons saying they think they can effectively offer dental treatment in the UK, and only 15% of the surveyed surgeons agree that they can.
Surgery practices are also failing to provide the best care for children.
Only around two thirds (63%) of those surveyed said they were satisfied with their care for their children.
Of the 13,000 children surveyed, the survey found that almost a third had received a treatment in a hospital setting.
The majority of those (54%) who had received treatment at home had not been able to see their GP.
