NEW Zealand dentists will conduct screenings later this week for patients approved by the principal dental officer at the Lautoka Hospital.

The dentists are in the country as part of a program by volunteer dentist group Smiles for the Pacific.

Group chairman Dr Jonathan Cole has also clarified the group would not provide free treatment for everyone.

He said selected patients who were treated by local dentists and referred to overseas specialists would be seen.

"The principal dental officer of Lautoka Hospital has to approve the conditions of the visitors and then only, they will approve the free dental services," he said.

The visiting dentists would also help local doctors attend to the specialised cases that were not available locally and mentor their Fijian counterparts.
