Plans are underway to get a new dentist appointed to Clones

Plans are underway to get a new dentist appointed to Clones.

In response to a question raised by local Sinn Fein councillor Brian McKenna, the HSE confirmed that the General Dental Surgeon post has been approved locally and is with the Primary Care Division for approval.

The post when recruited, will provide dental services to Cavan Monaghan Dental Departments with a substantial portion of this being provided from Drumalee Primary Care.

The issue has been an ongoing concern for the town of Clones which has been without a dentist for the past 12 months.
