Ealing Oral Health Promotion Team

Welcome to Ealing oral health promotion team. The Oral Health Promotion service in Ealing is a dedicated team aiming to improve Oral Health in the borough.
 
My name is Adele Francois and I am the Oral health Promoter for the borough of Ealing.  My role is to help improve children’s oral health, reduce inequalities in oral health and improve access to dental services for young children living in Ealing.  I also promote, educate and encourage children (families) to brush twice a day and visit a dentist as often as recommended.
 
The aims and objectives of the service is to reduce Oral Health inequalities and barriers faced by vulnerable groups due to various social, economic, cultural and health implications. This is achieved by partnering with various education, social care and healthcare services to:
 
  • Provide evidence-based oral health training to staff, stakeholders and service users in line with guidance from Public Health England (PHE) Delivering Better Oral Health (DBOH) National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) etc.
  • Improve access to dental services for young children and families
  • Provide access to basic oral health tools, i.e. Appropriate fluoride toothpaste and brushing packs
  • “Ealing smile daily” supervised Toothbrushing programme. There are currently 4500 children taking part in “Ealing smile daily” programme to help reduce tooth decay in the borough at 56 early year’s and school settings.

We provide oral health training and work actively with early years settings, schools and health services in the boroughs e.g.
