HC Deb 31 March 1958 vol 585 c89W
76. Mr. Blenkinsop

asked the Minister of Health what action he proposes to take to improve the dental care of children, in view of the Report published in the "Monthly Bulletin" of his Department.

Mr. R. Thompson

Conservative dental treatment for children has in recent years occupied a growing share of dentists' time and every encouragement is being given to this trend. But the real remedy lies in prevention, by measures such as dental health education and the fluoridation of water, and increasing attention is being devoted to this.
