Description

Starting Well Core 2019 - Leicestershire

An inter-professional facilitated learning session on:

Oral Health and Dental Access for young children – Starting Well Core a relaxed and informal learning session with an opportunity to network with colleagues from a range of different health professional backgrounds including dentists, dental health care practitioners, NHS England, Smile 4 Life and Local Authorities. These learning sessions are open to ALL health professionals in primary and secondary care, whether fully qualified and in practice for a number of years, newly qualified, in training or a member of the health care team. Starting Well Core is a commissioning approach designed to improve access for children aged 0-2 years, together with the provision of cost effective and evidence-based preventive interventions. The improved offer of earlier access to preventive care for pre-school aged children looks to support a reduction in the number of young children requiring a general anaesthetic for the removal of decayed teeth. These sessions are free, include refreshments and carry 5 hrs of CPD covering GDC Development Outcomes A, B, & D

The expected outcome of Starting Well Core is a change that fully utilises access opportunities for children into practices. In the short term it is expected that this will lead to an increase in dental access and the promotion of preventive care for children aged 0-2 years. In the longer term it is expected implementation will support the realisation of the following benefits:

  • An increase in dental access and attendance for children aged 0-2 years

  • A reduction in hospital-based extraction of teeth for children, and a corresponding reduction in spend

  • A reduction in restorative and emergency dental treatment for children attending NHS primary care dental services, and a corresponding reduction in spend;
