The Department of Health is today announcing £30 million funding for NHS dentists. Dental practices can use the funds to put on extra clinics, attract new patients or buy in new services such as orthodontics.

Dental surgeries have been applying to the local NHS to access the extra funds which will allow them to take on new patients and fund more clinics.

This is the second year the Government has made extra dental funding available. This will allow more patients to register with a dentist and get their oral health checked.
