Children’s teeth are in poor state, says dentist

A DENTIST said he has seen more tooth decay in Guernsey teenagers in two months than during two years working in London.

Russell McDonald moved to the island only recently but has been so concerned about what he has encountered he is starting an oral health promotion scheme in primary schools.

‘The state of the teeth of young people and adults in Guernsey is far worse than I saw in London or Cambridge, where I was before,’ he said.

The Health and Social Services Department said the Children’s Dental Service carried out regular surveys which showed the dental health of the island’s youngsters was improving. (from GEP)
