ORAL HEALTH EDUCATION AT RIVERSIDE.
A message from Janet – Riverside Oral Health Educator.
What is an Oral Health educator?
My role in the Practice is to work alongside the Dentists and Hygienists,
offering advice in a relaxed and friendly environment. Dental disease is
preventable and as nobody really enjoys dental treatment, we can work
together to prevent any unnecessary treatment from taking place. This can be
done by introducing simple changes in a patient’s daily routine.
Who can benefit from this service?
- Expectant and nursing mothers: for advice on bleeding gums and
care of the baby’s mouth.
- Children: for brushing advice, dietary advice and the care of
- Adults: for advice on all aspects of their dental health including
denture care and problems related t o illness.
- Patients with special needs.
