The surgeries are expected to be extended to other branches
A dental surgery has opened in a supermarket in Greater Manchester.
Sainsbury's say that the private dentist clinic in its Sale branch is the first in a supermarket in the UK.
It will be open seven days a week and follows the opening of a GP surgery at a Sainsbury's supermarket at Heaton Park, Manchester, in March.
Dentist Lance Knight said the practice aimed at "making dental healthcare more accessible and convenient to better meet patients' needs."
The service is expected to be extended to other supermarket branches.
The private surgery will go head to head with the NHS, charging £16 for a check up, which is slightly less than NHS fees.
David Gilder, of Sainsbury's, said: "There is a shortage of dental practices in the UK and the launch of this new service goes some way to providing local people with greater access to dental advice and a range of procedures."
