Stevenson Welcomes NE Dental Registration Increase

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed statistics published which show that dental registrations have increased substantially across the North-east of Scotland since the SNP came to power.

As of June 2010, there are now 13,260 more children and 56,726 more adults registered with a dentist in NHS Grampian than in March 2007.

Commenting on the news, Mr Stevenson said:

“The figures released show the progress under the SNP of increasing the number of children and adults registered with a dentist.

“The SNP were elected on a commitment to create a healthier Scotland and these statistics show we are doing just that. By getting more children registered with a dentist it will help their dental hygiene through the rest of their life.

"Although there is still a lot of work to be done for Grampian to catch up with the rest of Scotland, the SNP in Government are investing heavily. We have built the new £17 million dental school in Aberdeen which will produce 20 graduates a year, which will play its part in banishing to the past the long dental waiting lists which we inherited.”
