Parts of Lincolnshire are at risk of running out of NHS dentists.

If you live in Sleaford and Grantham and need a dentist you might find it a struggle.

The British Dental Association has found the Sleaford and Grantham area is among the worst affected parts of the country for patients trying to find a suitable practice - with over sixty percent unable to do so. 

In neighbouring Spalding and Bourne, nearly half of those trying to find treatment claim they have been unsuccessful.

Staff shortages is one reason given, while nearly 3/5 dentists have said they are considering quitting the NHS.
