"About Bloody Time - Well Done Alan Breckon"

Senator’s scheme for free mobile dental care

Senator’s scheme for free mobile dental care
FREE mobile dental clinics would be available to children and seniors if a new £7 million proposal is approved by the States.

Under Senator Alan Breckon’s proposal all primary school and pre-school children in Jersey – nearly 8,000 youngsters in total – could have access to the scheme.
Senior citizens receiving an old-age pension would also be eligible for free dental care from the mobile service.
In its proposed form, the scheme would require two mobile clinics and is expected to employ five dentists, four dental assistants and two administration staff.
The estimated cost of the plan is £2 million in the first year and £1 million each year for the following five years.
