Working with Health Visitors

PHE Dental Public Health have worked with the Institute of Health Visitors (IHV) providing expert advice to develop evidence based factsheets on oral health for babies and children. The oral health factsheets are part of an IHV on-line resource for important health topics for health visitors and include good practice points for HVs and tips for parents. The factsheets have been piloted with HVs and parents and DPH consulted with PHE Sugar Reduction Team, Diet & Obesity and incorporated their comments to ensure the nutritional advice is consistent with current messages. The factsheets are only available on-line.
