Health clinics are likely to start reappearing in Polish schools from 2018, Health Minister Konstanty Radziwiłł said on Monday.

“We would like each school to have a health clinic, a preventive health care clinic where a nurse or hygienist will be available, permanently in larger schools, and periodically in smaller schools," Radziwiłł said.

“And also to have dental clinics in larger schools, and schools that do not have a clinic to have access to dental care in other ways,” he added.

Experts have warned that nine in ten of the country’s 18-year-olds have tooth decay.

The average 18-year-old in Poland has cavities in seven teeth.
