Dentistry Services for People Living with Learning Disabilities
The Public Health England Observatory Team are writing a report which focuses on dentistry services for people with learning disabilities. The aim of the report is to share information, knowledge and best practice throughout the country to support people in improving services and care.
They would like to include as many good practice case studies as possible in this report so that other people can benefit and use this information to support people with learning disabilities in relation to their dental needs and oral health care. They would also like to signpost people to resources they can access free of charge.
Please send your stories, examples of your work and resources that relate to dentistry services and oral health care for people with learning disabilities to Anna, the project manager by clicking the ‘Email Anna’ link below.
