The plan, which will be rolled out in 2015, will see that every health centre has a dental therapist, with a surgeon in the offing. Mukandoli made this announcement at the World Dental Health Care Day at Groupe Scholaire Nyamata Catholique in Bugesera District. Mukandoli added that although there has been no national survey on dental ailments, it is an area that requires attention.
