ISLANDERS will have the chance to question key dental service commissioners, thanks to Healthwatch Isle of Wight.

They have organised a seminar in Newport, to take place on Friday August 22, when Islanders will be able to question two people who play a key role in providing local dental services — Natalie Jones, the NHS commissioner of dental services for the Island, and Dr Jeyanthi John, consultant in dental public health at Public Health England.

The seminar will be held at the Riverside Centre and is free to attend, but people must book their place.

The deadline for submitting questions ends today (Wednesday)

Healthwatch Isle of Wight spokeswoman Nikki Stewart said: "The event is open to anybody and we would urge anyone with an interest in dentistry, or those who may be dissatisfied with the service to book a place and attend.

"A key aim of Healthwatch is to connect local people with those responsible for the health and social care services on which they rely. We hope Islanders will take the opportunity to discover more about local dental services as well as making their views known."

All questions and booking requests should be emailed to or via (01983) 608608.
