North Country has added more dentists

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire has improved its dental services in the North Country, with 17 having moved into the region in the last decade.

They are among more than 70 dentists in the northern and western regions of the state.

And a new report by the New Hampshire Oral Health Workforce Strategic Plan says many of them are accepting new patients.

A number of the dentists provide free or reduced care to patients.

A survey of New Hampshire Dental Society members showed the median dollar value of free and reduced care contributed over a year was $20,000.
