Survey of Socially Inclusive Dental and OHP Services
As part of efforts to spread good practice, the Office of Chief Dental Officer, England, and King’s College London are working in collaboration to run a survey to map and find out more about existing dental services involved in providing targeted dental care or oral health promotion initiatives for socially excluded populations in England. This primarily includes dental services designed to reach homeless and vulnerably housed populations, sex workers, vulnerable migrants, Gypsy or Roma Travellers and other groups that may be considered by their present social circumstances to be socially excluded or marginalised. Contributors to the development of the survey questionnaire include representatives from King’s College London, the BDA England Community Dental Services Committee, the British Association for the Study of Community Dentistry, PHE London, Groundswell, Queen Mary’s University London and researchers in the field of social exclusion.
We are delighted to invite dental service providers and oral health promotion providers working with socially excluded populations to complete the survey, should they wish. Such providers may include Community Dental Services, General Dental Services, NHS, private, third sector and other organisations.
The survey is found at the following link, and can be accessed until the closing date of Wednesday 31st October 2018:
