National Smile Month

Above is Chris McKean., a 51 year old gentleman who is seen by our Special Care Dental Service often in a domiciliary setting. He finds access difficult as he is a C3-4 tetraplegic, as a result of a rugby accident, and uses a wheelchair. Lesley Bonner the Dental Hygienist carried out cleaning of his teeth with hand instruments and tooth brushing. This is usually done quarterly following a treatment plan from his dentist Hugh Badham Senior Dental Officer Special Care Dentistry.

Pictured below are some of the staff in Specialist Dental Services celebrating National Smile Month.
