Steve said: “We should be grateful in this country for the efforts of others that spares us the horrors of war. Without the courage and sacrifices of our veterans and current service personnel our lives would be very different” 


“The sacrifices, feats of bravery, selflessness in protecting others, and supreme professionalism of those who serve and support our armed forces is something that always deserves admiration and gratitude.”


Attending a meeting of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Dentistry at Parliament, Steve discovered how local targeted schemes are being used to tackle oral health inequalities.
The meeting heard from Dr Colette Bridgman, Consultant in Dental Public Health, who highlighted the extent of oral health inequalities that exist amongst children across the UK. In Birmingham, water fluoridation has ensured that the level of tooth decay in 12-15 year olds has dropped dramatically over the last 20 years.

As part of the Faces for the Forces campaign Steve has spent the last week asking people in his Birmingham Selly Oak constuency to join him in recording a goodwill message to the troops in Afghanistan this Christmas so that they know that people back in the UK are thinking of them.

Steve's message and those from people across the constituency including the Kings Norton Royal British Legion and the Moseley Round Table are shown below.
