Natalie Jones, Contract Manager at Wessex Area Team, NHS England, said; “The Tooth Bus is a good way for those who haven’t visited a dentist for a couple of years to have a quick check-up in a relaxed environment. The bus is there from 10.30am – 4pm and operates a drop-in service.”

A mobile dental clinic is touring the Isle of Wight to provide free dental check ups and advice.

The Tooth Bus will visit two locations on the Island as part of its tour of the region to promote oral health for National Smile Month.

The Tooth Bus will visit Sainsbury's car park in Newport from May 20-25th and then Waitrose car park in East Cowes from May 28 to June 1.

Residents will be able to visit the bus for check ups and advice in a bid to encourage people to regularly visit dental services.
