Volunteering dentists treat more than 100 children for vital hygiene treatment
A Scottish dental group has now delivered more than 100 free fluoride varnish treatments for children in some of Scotland’s most deprived areas.
Dentists at Clyde Munro Dental Group have volunteered their time to provide the service by holding clinics around Scotland for youngsters to receive essential treatment. The milestone was hit earlier this month and has highlighted the commitment from dentists around the country to continue contributing, after some health boards put their application treatments on hold.
Jacqui Frederick, Group Clinical Director at Clyde Munro, said: “We are very proud of our teams volunteering to provide the fluoride varnish clinics, giving up their free time to deliver the service and hit the milestone of 100 children receiving the treatment.”
The fluoride varnish application clinics are part of the dental group’s wider initiative, Clyde Munro Cares. Throughout the last 15 months Clyde Munro have also been offering virtual preventive sessions with children and their parents.
