A cheap dental service has started up amid Northcote Central’s state housing area.
Non-profit Te Puna Hauora recently added the five-day-a-week dental clinic to its list of services for the area’s poor and migrant communities.
It will provide a dentist and a dental assistant, with a 10 percent discount for those enrolled in Te Puna Primary Health Organisation.
The service is a response to community concerns about the prohibitive cost of dental treatment, says Te Puna project coordinator Robyn Anderson.
A future clinic is also planned at 166 Birkdale Rd, she says.
