Which South Hams village has the healthiest teeth in the West?

By Toby Leigh in Health

A SOUTH Hams village has significantly healthier teeth than the rest of the South West, dentists have claimed.

Mydentist, which runs the NHS Primrose Junction surgery in South Brent, say dentists at the surgery have carried out 9.1 extractions for every 100 patients in the last year.

The figure compares to 10.67 extractions across the South West as a whole, and an average of 11.14 for the UK.

Mydentist, which says it is the largest provider of NHS dentistry in the UK, came up with the figures through a study of its more than seven million patients nationwide.
