Oral Health Promotion and Education

Camden, Islington, Haringey and Enfield have some of the highest levels of inequality in the country, with socially diverse, multi-cultural and ageing populations.
Socially excluded and disadvantaged people suffer the effects of poor oral health with the added disadvantage of poor access to dental care and preventive services.

Whittington Health Dental Services are actively working across Haringey , Enfield, Camden and Islington to promote good dental health and reduce inequalities. For example we run oral health promotion programmes for :
  • pre-school nurseries and Children’s Centres
  • care homes for Older People
  • people with learning disabilities
  • prisons
