Oxfordshire Oral Health Improvement

The Oral Health Improvement Team is proud to be commissioned by Oxfordshire County Council to deliver and promote oral health programmes and education services to ever more communities.

The award winning team co-ordinate, facilitate and support a range of evidence-based interventions to reduce oral health inequalities and promote better oral health.

The service creates tooth-friendly environments through training, local accreditation programmes and partnership alliances. As well as successfully working with early year’s settings, schools, children and adults with special needs and /or living in care settings, the team work with other community groups for example Travellers, Homeless and other marginalised people.  Please contact the team for more information.

Oral health is everyone’s responsibility, therefore training is available to health and non- health professionals.  Sessions are tailored to meet the requirements of specific areas e.g health visiting, school health nurses, teachers and many voluntary sector areas. The team will provide the dates and venues of planned sessions throughout the year or will discuss bespoke events according to requirements.

Accreditation of early years settings, primary and special schools, is delivered through the Healthy Smiles programme.
