An extra 1,300 patients in Cornwall will get access to an NHS dentist.

Health bosses have won a share of a £3.5 million grant.

The money will be spent across Caradon, Restormel and North Cornwall.

Bridget Sampson, Deputy Director for Primary Care at NHS Cornwall and Isles of Scilly, said: "We have introduced new providers in areas where there is a shortage of dentists due to people retiring or leaving the NHS and waiting lists have quickly built up. This new cash is welcome and will be used to ensure other areas can also benefit from offering additional appointments to meet demand for NHS dental services. We also hope to be in a position soon to announce our plans for further increasing capacity in the new financial year."
