    Oral Health Care Course Overview:

    Oral health has a big impact on our quality of life. We express ourselves by talking or smiling. We can take immense enjoyment from what we eat or drink and pride in the state of our teeth and gums. These things are just as important for people living in care homes, so good oral health care must not stop once a person enters a home.
