“This SNP Scottish Government has taken huge strides in improving the oral health of people in Fife and across Scotland.

 

“Since the SNP came to power, efforts to increase the number of people receiving regular dental check-ups is paying off, with the number of adults registered more than doubling across Scotland.

 

“Here in Fife, we’ve seen 113% more adults and 51.9% more children registered with an NHS dentist since 2007.

 

“Of course there’s always room for improvement, and I hope to see more people in Fife ensuring they are able to access a local NHS dentist.”
