Ilford dentists sign up to web initiative

An Ilford dental surgery has signed up to a London-focused website to help people book instant appointments.

The Fencepiece Dental Practice in Fencepiece Road is included, along with more than 1,000 other dentists, on Toothpick.com.

Website users can search for a practice and then book online.

The website’s founder, dentist Sandeep Senghera, said the difficulty of finding a good practice is a barrier to good dental health in the capital. A London Assembly report said despite London having one of the highest concentrations of dentists nearly one million Londoners hadn’t visited the dentist in the past two years.
