Specialty Trainee in Dental Public Health
NHS Ayrshire & Arran
Having spent the majority of my career working in the Public Dental Service, before joining Dental Public Health, I have treated multiple patients with a range of additional care needs. Through this I have seen how important daily oral care is to a patient's dental health and their more general health and wellbeing. I also understand how difficult it can be to deliver mouthcare for complex individuals where a number of challenges are faced.
I hope that Open Wide will provide the guidance and advice to help carers overcome these challenges and I am delighted to have been asked to speak at this launch event to highlight the links between Open Wide and other oral health improvement programmes for different age groups.
