Charles Clifford Dental Services have been working in partnership with Sheffield University Dental School, NHS Sheffield CCG and Sheffield Health and Social Care to develop three videos about mouthcare for adults with learning disabilities and their carers .
Good oral health is an important factor in people’s general health and quality of life. People with learning disabilities may need additional help with their oral care and support to get good dental treatment.
Dental services must make reasonable adjustments to ensure that their patients with learning disabilities can use their service in the same way as other people. This might include making practical adjustments to the environment or changes in the process.
