Listen: IDA Says Public Dental System Is In "Dire Straits".

: 12/09/2019 - 15:52

The Irish Dental Association claims the public dental system is in 'dire straits'.

According to an investigation by the Irish Examiner, thousands of school-children are missing out on vital check-ups.

In Dublin South West/Kildare West Wicklow, fourth class pupils have not been offered examinations for approximately five years due to reduced staffing.

Many kids aren't getting free appointments that are supposed to coincide with key development stages.

IDA president Leo Strassen says the problem is caused by a huge shortage of dentists.
