There is a University Dental Service almost opposite one end of the College (St Peter’s Terrace), at 3 Trumpington Street; dentists are available for consultation by all Junior Members.  The Committee of Management of the University Health Services has recommended that, under current National Health Service arrangements for dental treatment, Junior Members register with a Cambridge dentist while they are in residence in the same way as they register with a Cambridge General Practitioner.  Junior Members should enquire of the University Dental Service or of a General Dental Practitioner for details.  Besides the University Dental Service there are, in the town, a number of General Dental Practitioners, some with surgeries quite close to the College.  Junior Members may, of course, if they wish, make use of the services of these Dental Practitioners.
