Access to dental services in England for adults in care homes:- What effect does improving and maintaining access to dental services for adults in care homes have on their oral health and general health and wellbeing?
- Any explanatory notes
Why this is important:- No research studies were identified that look at care homes in England to determine what interventions are effective and cost effective at improving and maintaining access to dental services. This includes the impact on residents' oral health. Providing and maintaining access to dental services may have resource implications for care homes and it is not clear how the various approaches compare in terms of costs and benefits.
