PEOPLE in the Western Division will get better oral health care following the opening of the Smiles for the Pacific (SFTP) clinic at the Lautoka Hospital by dental professionals from New Zealand.

SFTP chairman Dr Jonathon Cole said the clinic would offer diagnostic screening by visiting dental professionals.

"For the people in the West, we will be providing them with some dental healthcare which they may have not had access to like surgical treatment and normal dental service, which might not be available in their areas," he said.

"Sometimes they lose (teeth) just because it is not getting the proper treatment that they should be getting so that is basically some of the things that we want to offer through the clinic."
