 Dentistry to Be Improved in Scotland

A £75m government investment is being channeled into dental services in Scotland. Health Secretary Nicola Sturgeon said the money would be used to modernize existing facilities in dental services.

New dental centres for independent general dental practitioners (GDPs) working in the NHS will also be instituted using the money.

"This substantial investment will allow health boards to put in place a range of new and improved health facilities to serve people in communities right across Scotland. Above all, it shows that this government is strongly committed to improving dental services, particularly in areas where registration rates are currently unacceptably low," Ms Sturgeon said.

NHS boards in Scotland have been advised to prepare proposals detailing their needs.
