Liz visits scheme to improve children’s dental health

On Friday I met with staff at Winchester Avenue dental practice who are working to improve children’s oral health. 

The surgery has signed up to the Starting Well campaign, which has an important focus on prevention & making sure children have their first dental check by the time they reach a year old. 

This is an important scheme for Leicester, where 45 per cent of children under the age of five years old have experienced tooth decay.  I was pleased to visit the surgery and hear from the dentist and dental nurses on how this will scheme will benefit my constituents.
