Free dental care for children


AROUND 35,300 children aged between six and 15 in the Balearic Islands received free dental treatment in 2014.
The Children’s Dental Care Programme (PADI), has been running for 10 years in the islands and covers 31.5 per cent of the infant population. It is run by the Health Department in collaboration with 154 public and private dentists.
This year, 90,385 children in Mallorca could benefit from the programme, and throughout the region, the number amounts to 114,007.
The service includes an annual check-up, x-rays, fillings, cleaning, special treatment for malformations and education in dental health and hygiene.
Braces, temporary or aesthetic treatments and implants are not included.
