Supermarket Dental Surgery Opens in UK To Help Solve Shortage of National Health Care Dentists
BBC: A dental surgery has opened in a supermarket in Greater Manchester. Sainsbury's Supermarket say that the private dentist clinic in its Sale branch is the first in a supermarket in the UK. The private surgery will go head to head with the NHS, charging £16 for a check up, which is slightly less than National Health Service fees.
David Gilder, of Sainsbury's, said: "There is a shortage of dental practices in the UK and the launch of this new service goes some way to providing local people with greater access to dental advice and a range of procedures."
