The Oral Health Improvement Team provides tailored Oral Health Education including information on teething, diet, brushing, etc. to groups such as preschools, children’s centres, care homes, community hubs and schools.
Oral health improvement update sessions can also be requested by teams of health and social care professionals.
As a team we are also able to offer assistance with displays, events and input into any relevant sections of health and well-being policies as required.
Patients receiving care from Community Dental services may be referred to see a member of our oral health improvement team by their dentist, this is because they feel that you would benefit from having some individual advice on issues with your oral health include dietary advice, tooth brushing techniques and fluoride application.
