To celebrate their success certificates were presented by Colin Cox(Director of Public Health),Eric Rooney(PHE Dental Public Health Consultant), and Julie King(Chair of Cumbria Local Dental Network). Reducing dental decay in Cumbria is the key objective of this increased capacity to apply fluoride varnish along with the coordinated delivery of oral health messages through the Smile4Life Programme.
