Last year we highlighted that in Gloucestershire only 45% of residents have access to NHS Dentistry. We are at the bottom of league tables for numbers seen by NHS dentists. Since then Gloucestershire has been investing in improvements.
Anyway 8,000 new places will be made available at the Archway Dental Practice in Stroud - the former solicitors offices. Go and get registered now!
