CLCH Oral Health Promotion Team

Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust (CLCH) Oral Health Promotion Team are a dedicated team who specialise in the care and support of oral health for children and their families.

Despite being a preventable disease, dental decay remains the top reason for hospital non-emergency admissions for 5–9-year-olds across the boroughs with many children having teeth extracted under a general anaesthesia. Poor oral health may also result in poor general health as well as:

  • Oral infection and discomfort/pain.
  • Difficulty eating, sleeping, talking, and socialising due to pain.
  • Absence from nursery due to sleepless nights caused by toothache or by visits to the dentist for treatment

The following support is available:

  • Oral Health training to Staff in Early Years, Children Centres, and Schools (face to face or virtual)
  • Visits to Stay and Play groups at Children Centres where information and resources are shared with families
  • Parents sessions (face to face or virtual) 
  • Attend coffee mornings at schools to promote oral health messages
  • Provide resources to improve oral health in your setting 
  • Offer various support in promoting oral health if you have chosen Oral Health for your HEYL Silver/Gold award project
