Abstract Share this page

The aim of this series is to encourage practitioners to provide access to dental and oral health care for people requiring special care dentistry. The theme of the articles will be 'Access' in its broadest terms – for example, from access to the NHS to the dental practice; and from how you as a practitioner can access support from specialist services to tips on how to manage individual patients in the surgery setting. The emphasis will be on collaboration between the secondary and primary care services, including the place of 'shared care'. The series is directed at the oral health of adolescents and adults, as children with disability are generally cared for by specialists in paediatric dentistry rather than those in special care dentistry. However, a large proportion of the information and practical tips provided in the series will be transferable between age groups.
