Ten thousand Jamaicans are to benefit from the Ministry of Health & Wellness’ latest oral health and dentures replacement programme dubbed ‘Second Chance Smiles’. The announcement was made by the Minister of Health & Wellness, Dr. the Hon. Christopher Tufton, during his Sectoral presentation earlier this year. So far, over one thousand people have benefited.

“When we extract, particularly poor people’s teeth, especially when they are in the productive years of their lives, we might address the pain, but we also restrict their life chances for happiness and economic gain. That’s not in keeping with principles we should represent,” the Minister maintained. To be considered, visit your local health centre to be assessed.
