Oral care for special needs groups can be difficult to provide. Understanding the special considerations involved in looking after someone's teeth is vital. This course gives you the knowledge and skills to help special groups in caring for their teeth and oral cavity.

This online course offers practical skills, guidance and advice to increase your confidence in caring for these individuals.
