Across Scotland there are now 107% more adults and 43% more children registered with an NHS dentist than before the SNP came into power.
Commenting, SNP MSP for Renfrewshire South, Tom Arthur, said:
“This SNP Scottish Government has taken huge strides in improving the oral health of people in Renfrewshire South and across Scotland.
“Since the SNP came to power, efforts to increase the number of people receiving regular dental check-ups is paying off, with the number of adults registered more than doubling across Scotland.
“In the Greater Glasgow and Clyde area, we’ve seen 100% more adults and 44.1% more children registered with an NHS dentist since 2007.
