Our Oral Health Improvement Work

CDS oral health improvement teams are contracted to provide oral health improvement services to address the needs of the population. We work predominantly with young children in schools and early years settings to deliver accredited programmes, alongside vulnerable and elderly care settings to ensure good oral health advice and practice is available to all. In addition, we provide training to health and non-health professionals.

Our aim is to work with people and communities to raise awareness of good oral health and it’s impact on wider health and wellbeing.
