Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust's Oral Health team offers a range of programmes including fluoride varnish applications and a toothbrushing programme delivered in primary and special schools.

The programmes offered by Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust’s Oral Health team focus on improving young children’s oral health, and preventing dental decay from birth up to 19 years old.

We work together with a wide range of professionals, voluntary and community groups offering advice, support and online training to promote oral health, particularly to key groups such as children.

Visit the Trust website’s Oral Health improvement page for more information about fluoride varnish applications and the toothbrushing programme as well as more useful oral health information.
