Brent Oral Health Promotion Team

OHP - Brent OHPT - Introduction
Welcome we are Brent Oral health promotion team.
 
Our main focus is to improve the oral health of Brent children in early years’ and primary school settings. There are huge inequalities in oral health with tooth decay being strongly associated with deprivation and social exclusion . Brent has 40.1% of children with decayed missing or filled teeth.
 
The Oral Health Promoters work with the community to create environments that promote good oral health from an early age, including:
 
  • Supporting a number of education (early years & school) settings to promote good oral health such as the supervised tooth-brushing programme
  • Providing dental health support to families with children under 5 years who are at high risk for developing tooth decay (dental caries); and
  • Working alongside other services to promote good oral health such as Brent local authority public health team, Family Wellbeing Centres support you from the moment you know you’re expecting, through pregnancy and birth, until your child is 18 years old (or up to 25 for children and young people with special educational needs), 0-19 year old and care homes.
