In a nutshell: A review of dental service provision for people living with dementia in north Merseyside undertaken in 2014-15, highlighted a number of issues with access to dental services and dental care provision from the perspective of patients, carers and clinicians. A team of experts developed a toolkit for the primary care dental team which provides advice to support ‘dementia-friendly’ practices and dental care. The toolkit was published in May 2016 and distributed to all NHS dental practices across Cheshire and Merseyside alongside a series of related peer review meetings. There are currently around 80 dental practices developing action plans and engaging in staff training to make themselves more ‘dementia friendly’.
