A shortage of NHS dentist places has been an issue in parts of West Yorkshire for some time now. The knock on effects of this has left some people in desperate need of dental treatment but unable to afford private dental costs. However, now North Kirklees gets some dental TLC thanks to the charity Dentaid.
Dentaid is providing a number of free clinics over the coming weeks that will be scattered around the Kirklees area. The mobile dental unit will visit a total of six areas over a two week period. Funding for the project has come from The Dewsbury and Mirfield District Committee. They have given a grant for just over seven thousand pounds for Dentaid to provide vital dental care and advice for people in desperate need. All treatments offered are completely free of charge. The project promises to be an extremely valuable service for the people of Kirklees. If you would like more information on the locations of these free clinics you can check out The Huddersfield Daily Examiner website.
