holding answer 4 June 2007

The provision of dental care to service dependents was discussed at Joint Ministry of Defence and Department of Health Partnership boards during 2006.

At the time, we were advised of initiatives being implemented by the UK Health Departments that are intended to improve access to NHS dental care throughout England, Scotland and Wales. The MOD is continuing to monitor the progress of these plans.
