Free dental care in Glasgow

 
July 10th 2009
 
From 20th July NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde will be providing a dental service for homeless people. It is mainly to cater to the need of the people on the streets and those living in temporary accommodation. The service consists of two dentists and support staff. A recent survey found that homeless people have high levels of tooth decay and statistics show that 30 per cent have false teeth. Shelter Scotland welcomed the new service, and underlined how difficult for the homeless to get access to a range of medical services, including dentists, doctors and even pharmacies.
