Commission tailored oral health promotion services for adults at high risk of poor oral health

NICE Public Health Guidance 55: Oral Health: local authorities and partners recommends:

1) Providing tailored interventions to help people at high risk of poor oral health who live independently in the community. This could include outreach services, for example, for people who are homeless or who frequently change location, such as traveller communities. 
2) Ensuring services deliver evidence-based advice and interventions to promote and protect oral health, in line with Delivering Better Oral Health
3) Ensuring local care pathways encourage people to use dental services.
