Homeless and vulernable people in Salisbury and Southampton are being given the chance to have free dental care when the mobile dental unit visits Dentaid’s partner organisations Alabare Place and Two Saints.Volunteer dental professionals provide dental screening, oral health advice and treatments including fillings, extractions and scale and polish. The clinics have been generously funded by local Rotary Clubs and take place each month.
“I’ve had toothache for so long I don’t remember not having it. It does keep me awake but for people with anxiety and mental health issues going out to a dentist is really hard so it’s much better that the dentists come here. I’ve had a filling and if I get my teeth sorted hopefully I’ll smile more.” James Walmsley – Alabare Place resident.
