Doherty calls for action to address orthodontic waiting lists in Donegal


Donegal Deputy Pearse Doherty has described Orthodonic services for patients in Donegal as 'totally shambolic'.

Recent figures from the HSE reveal that there are currently 39 people in the county waiting for more than 4 years to receive necessary dental treatment.

The figures also reveal that there are currently 428 patients in the county on waiting lists for orthodontic treatment in both the Grade 4 and Grade 5 wait categories.

Deputy Doherty is calling on the Health Minister to address the issue...........
