Residents of Swanage in the south of England are soon going to get the chance to see an NHS dentist, as a new practice is to open in the town.
According to a report by the Bournemouth Echo, health bosses in the region have confirmed the surgery could be open by April this year.
SCA Trafalgar Dental Services, part of the SCA Group, has won the contract to run the town’s new NHS dental practice.
A Dorset NHS spokesman said: “We have worked hard to ensure we are able to offer people in and around the town a secure NHS dental service for the long term.”
Local campaigner Mandy Mason stated the news is “great” for the people of the town.
Government figures recently revealed that the success rate for people trying to get an appointment with an NHS dentist was 94 per cent between July and September in 2012.
