It also sets out practical advice and professional intervention for 0 to 6 year olds that we, with our dental care professionals, can deliver in our practices.
The UK wide Dental Check by One campaign has been launched by BSPD in partnership with the Office of the Chief Dental Officer England. The aim of the campaign is to increase the number of children who access dental care aged 0-2 years. Any practice that can commit to the campaign is welcome to use the DCby1 logo on their website and to support the campaign on social media using #DCby1.
Kent Surrey and Sussex Local Dental Network, through Agi Tarnowski and Jennifer Parry are supporting and promoting Dental Check by 1.
