Care home residents are not receiving adequate dental health support


A recent news story has revealed that a concerning number of individuals in care homes are not receiving adequate dental health support. Inspectors visiting over 100 care homes in England found that residents did not have enough access to dental services and that staff were not giving residents the necessary support.
