Our dentists have pioneered oral heath services in an area that has historically seen this area as a “luxury”. In addition to the many necessary extractions, they have focussed on prevention by targeting schools and even doing restorative work. Since 2012 we have had only one dentist, but the scope of work offered has slowly expanded and now routinely includes fillings as well as the occasional prosthesis or two!
