PEOPLE can get their teeth checked out on a mobile tooth bus which is stopping off in Portsmouth.

The mobile clinic provides free NHS dental check-ups and will be in the car park of the Asda store, in Fratton.

People can get advice on good oral hygiene, as well as information about NHS dentists.

Dr Andrew Mortimore, interim director of public health for Portsmouth, said: ‘Everyone should see a dentist regularly for preventative care and advice – not just attend when they need treatment or are in pain.

‘The tooth bus is a convenient way to get information on finding an NHS dentist in your area for a full check-up and any treatment.’

The bus will be in Portsmouth until March 23, and is open from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
