Ten thousand Jamaicans are to benefit from the Health Ministry’s oral health and dentures replacement programme dubbed ‘Second Chance Smiles’.

He said $60 million will be spent on the programme, over a 2-year period.



Dr. Tufton added that the Ministry will be exploring additional measures that can be implemented as an alternative to extractions.
