Bradford district NHS dentists open their doors to new patients
11:00am Friday 7th September 2012 in News
People living in Bradford and Airedale who have not been to the dentist in the last two years are being encouraged to see an NHS dentist during the latest in a series of NHS open-access days.
Twenty-eight NHS practices across the district are opening their doors to new patients on Wednesday.
A check-up and, if appropriate, a course of treatment will be offered to people who book an appointment in advance.
This is the latest in a series of open-access days in Bradford and Airedale, following three successful dates in February and March when more than 4,000 people who had not visited a dentist for two years were given check-ups.
The latest open access day is the result of funding dedicated to addressing access issues in the district by NHS Airedale, Bradford and Leeds.
Each practice has a maximum of 20 appointments to offer on Wednesday on a first come, first served basis, and normal NHS charges and exemptions apply.
Catherine Thatcher, deputy director of primary care at NHS Airedale, Bradford and Leeds, said: “Following the success of our dental access days earlier in the year, we are continuing to help people to see an NHS dentist in Bradford and Airedale.
“We are particularly keen that patients who have not seen a dentist for two years or more take advantage of this opportunity.
“Patients who have seen a dentist more recently should start by contacting the practice where they last had treatment.”
In addition to the access sessions, anyone looking for a dentist should go to the NHS Choices website at nhs.uk.
People already on a waiting list at an NHS practice in Bradford and Airedale will be allocated places as soon as they become available.
