SNP MSP Colin Beattie has welcomed the rising NHS dentist registrations figures – with 785,433 people now registered across NHS Lothian.

The percentage of adults registered with a dentist in the Lothians has gone up from 87 to 89 per cent during the last year, while the number of children registered is up from 89 to 90 per cent. Mr Beattie said: “Our oral health is vital for our wider health and wellbeing – and it is great to see people taking steps to ensure that they are able to access an NHS dentist in communities across Midlothian.”
