STRONG DENTAL REGISTRATION NUMBERS LEAVES FALKIRK DISTRICT SMILING

 

SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT ACTION PAYING DIVIDENDS ACROSS SCOTLAND

 

SNP MSP Angus MacDonald is today welcoming new figures showing strong numbers of dental registration in Falkirk district – and is encouraging local people to ensure they attend regular check-ups with their dentist.

 

Figures published by the Scottish Government show that 53,994 children and 205,662 adults in Forth Valley are now registered with a dentist – as national figures show that almost 2 million more people across Scotland are now registered since the SNP came to office.

 

Commenting, Falkirk East MSP Angus MacDonald said:

 

“The SNP’s investment in our health service is paying dividends – with 259,656 people in Forth Valley now registered with a dentist and almost 2 million more people across Scotland registered since the Scottish Government came to office. 

 

“The large number of children registered in Forth Valley is also particularly welcome – with 53,994 now having access to a dentist

 

“Regular attendance at a dentist is very important – and can help identify early signs of oral cancer – so I would urge everyone across Falkirk district to take the opportunity offered by increased access to an NHS dentist and make sure they take the time for regular check-ups.

 

“These figures are another example of the SNP’s commitment to and investment in our health service paying off – and so it is no wonder that the people of Falkirk district are continuing to put their faith in us to improve our public services.”
