FDS supports PHE publication "Delivering Better Oral Health" Guidance

13 Jun 2014

Commenting on the publication of Public Health England’s 'Delivering Better Oral Health'guidance, the Dean of the Faculty of Dental Surgery (FDS) at the Royal College of Surgeons Kathryn Harley, said:

‘We strongly support this guidance, which reinforces the positive impact a healthy lifestyle can have on oral health. Dental erosion and caries (decay) are entirely preventable diseases, which can lead to unnecessary fillings and extractions. Sugar and acid in food and drink play a key role in causing these diseases. It is therefore critical to provide dental teams with all the evidence based information they need to provide patients with the best practical advice they can to improve and maintain their oral health.

We look forward to lending our expertise and independence in further promoting the delivery of good oral health and working with NHS England to ensure patients’ needs are met and those providing their care are supported.’
