Clare TD Receiving ‘Cries For Help’ About Lack Of Access To Dental Services

Clare’s Sinn Fein TD says she’s receiving ‘cries for help’ from people in this county who have medical cards and can’t access dental services.

Just 16 dentists in Clare are now enrolled into the Dental Treatment Support Scheme.

It’s led to medical card holders in this county having to cross the border into other areas to attempt to receive treatment.


Kilrush-based Deputy Violet-Anne Wynne says many people here are struggling getting access to a local dentist.
