DAB LegCo member (New Territories Northwest) Holden Chow, together with the DAB Tuen Mun team including Tuen Mun Branch chairperson Mo Shing Fung, visited the Tuen Mun Yan Oi Dental Clinic during midnight to learn more about dental services from people waiting overnight. The provision of public dental services in Tuen Mun in fact was not sufficient, as the clinic was only open to the public once a week and the consultation quotas was only 21.
Holden Chow requested the government to provide ticketing service, to increase the number of days the clinic is open to public and the consultation quotas for public dental services. In the long-term, the government should relax the restrictions on the practice of non-locally trained dentists to alleviate the shortage problem.
