As part of the SW PHE strategic programme for oral health and dementia, the AGW Public Health Network is hosting a lunchtime webinar on

Oral Health & Dementia Infographic Launch

Why you should attend: people living with dementia tend to have worse oral health, a greater treatment need but yet, access dental care less frequently than the general population. In dementia, oral health and general health and wellbeing are inextricably linked, with impacts on diet and nutrition, behaviour and quality of life.

 The webinar will introduce the infographic, to review how local authorities, CCGs, the NHS and health professionals could promote use of the infographic to improve the oral health of those adults living with dementia.

Aims of the infographic: to encourage health care professionals to include oral health in everyday routine conversations and consultations with those living with dementia, at every stage of the dementia pathway, right from point of diagnosis. It will seek to maximise their role in raising awareness of the importance of oral health, as well as in providing basic oral health information. These are patients who are most likely not seeing a dentist regularly anyway, so this may be the only oral health input they receive.

Target audience: GPs and GP-based staff, pharmacy-based staff, and allied health professionals

Key objectives:

  • To reinforce to the health care professional, the importance of oral health in dementia, and the impact of oral health on general health and wellbeing
  • To remind the healthcare professional to advise dementia patients to attend the dentist
  • To provide evidence-based oral health advice to the health/social care professional, to pass onto their patient as appropriate

Please register with Eventbrite via the AGW PHN website listing and you will receive a calendar invite with Skype/ dial in details.
