Society of Dental Surgeons, J&K (SDSJK) Saturday castigated the Government for what it called "failing" to address the issues of dentists and promoting quality oral health care to the patients.

"The state of oral health services prevailing in state is under shambles which has led to various health hazards on which Government seems to be in deep sleep," said Dr Shujaat Ahmad, Vice President, SDSJK.

"It is astonishing that the Government recently opened 371 New Type Primary Health Centres vide Govt. order no 585-HME of 214 dated 17/10/2014 with a creation of 371 Medical Officers but unfortunately no dental surgeon post has been created in these health centres," he added.
