Dental Advice for People Living with Dementia
In patients living with dementia, their oral health is often at higher risk as they are less like to remember to brush, may be physically unable to brush as effectively/at all, or have lost the understanding of the importance of keeping their teeth clean.
Therefore, they are more likely to develop dental decay, gum disease and experience dental pain. Guidance and help is available below Dental advice for people living with Dementia

Join our Patient Participation Group (PPG)...
Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) were developed as a means to extend patient involvement in ways that encourage people to engage with the NHS. PPGs bring together those patients who take an interest in healthcare with representatives from their local practice. St Luke's and Botley PPG works in partnership aiming to continually improve the patient experience, ensuring services, plans, and activities respond to patients needs and priorities. The PPG is open to all patients registered at the practice and all practice staff
