About the course

Good oral health care is a crucial aspect of care provision. Poor oral health can have a huge impact on people’s quality of life, affecting eating, speaking – even socialising. The majority of oral health conditions are preventable or treatable in their early stages. However, currently only around 25% of care homes have a clear oral health policy in place.

Our comprehensive Oral Health product will help you to care for the oral health of your clients, including what to look for in a healthy mouth, how to promote good oral care and what to do when issues inevitably arise.
