New scheme has real bite

Have your say

A NEW scheme has been set up among city dental practices to encourage residents to practice good oral health.

The TLC for Teeth initiative has been launched with dentists in Darnall and Tinsley, working in partnership with NHS Sheffield and community organisations including Darnall Wellbeing.

It aims to increase access to dental services and in turn encourage people to take care of their teeth.

Kate Jones, director of dental public health at NHS Sheffield, said: “We know there are some parts of Sheffield where children have higher-than-average levels of tooth decay.”
