Dental woes


I, the same as Chris Savage, have had a struggle to find a NHS dentist, for almost two years (Number of children visiting NHS dentists in sharp fall, May 6).

I can't really afford to go private, although I have paid into our national heath care system for over

50 years, having worked all my life.

I am now 68 years old, and resorted to pull out four of my lower-jaw teeth, but still have two bottom front teeth that are extremely loose.

This affects what I can eat now! I'm sure there many other people in this position.

Even before this terrible Covid pandemic, local dental practices were closing at an alarming rate!

I just need a bit of help, but it is not there!
