Free dental services

A TEAM of dentists from the Fiji Dental and Medical Foundation is extending goodwill towards villagers on the outer islands by offering them free dental services.

According to Amanda Sofield of Tandem Investment Corporation Limited, the team is based at Yaro Village in the Mamanucas.

"The team is at Yaro until late every day and staying on Namotu," she said.

"They are working from sunrise to sunset and travelling between the islands."

The team started visiting the islands last year when its inaugural visit led to about 1400 people benefitting from the project.

"The clinics have been eagerly awaited by those in the Mamanucas, and are providing many tourism industry workers free access to services which are nearly impossible for them to enjoy otherwise."
