Dental Care on Pitcairn
The Medical Centre on the island has a room set aside for dental purposes and it is fully equipped with all the necessary equipment. Every two years the Pitcairn Island Government employs the services of a dentist to visit the island and check the teeth of the residents. Pitcairn Island residents were fortunate to have visiting dentist David Templeton arrive on the Claymore supply ship on 31st May for a ten day working trip. David is from Virginia, USA. He previously came to Pitcairn Island for a similar trip two years ago. After checking the teeth he scheduled follow up appointments for those that needed them. We are all grateful that we are able to receive this treatment in such an isolated place.
