NHS dentist van takes to the road in Suffolk

A mobile dentist offering NHS treatment from the back of a van is to begin its rounds in Suffolk.

People in Stradbroke and surrounding villages will be able to try out the new service from Thursday.

NHS Suffolk said the temporary service will allow it to assess the demand for dentists.

Patients can get check-ups, scale and polish, fillings and extractions. The van is fully fitted with equipment including digital X-ray facilities.

Appointments can be made via NHS Suffolk's Patient Liaison and Advice Service (PALS).
