£5m funding for Scottish dentists12th September 2008
The Scottish government has announced an extra £5 million of funding for helping dentists improve decontamination facilities in their surgeries.
The additional money for the current financial year will be split among health boards according to their population size and will go towards improvements to practice premises and facilities for the cleaning and decontamination of instruments. Dental practices must conduct cleaning of instruments in a separate, designated area and the funding recognises the additional costs dentists may incur as a result of these new measures.
