Oral Health – Should we leave it all to the dentists?

October 31, 2023 @ 12:30 pm - 1:15 pm


Judy Downey and Molly Agarwal talk about oral health – Should we leave it all to the dentists? This LWN in Conversation style webinar will discuss:

Haven’t nurses got enough to do?

Should dentists look for diabetes?

Nurses and midwives are in a unique position to raise awareness about the importance of oral health and provide oral health education to individuals, families and communities. Implementing preventive measures early will alleviate individual pain, discomfort and disfigurement and reduce the economic burden of oral diseases on individuals and the health system.

A collaboration between C3 Collaborating for Health, the Commonwealth of Nurses and Midwifery Federation and Learn With Nurses.

Funded by Burdett Trust for Nursing.

I am an Associate at C3, working across C3’s program of Nurses for Healthier Communities. I am also an overseas Dentist and work clinically as a Dental Therapist and am passionate about preventative dental care that includes educating patients on the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene and its implications on general health and well-being. In the past I have also worked for the NHS to reduce oral health inequalities across the borough of Tower Hamlets, having treated and educated pupils in more than 70 primary schools in the borough.

I am passionate about the wider determinants of health in stark contrast to clinical treatment alone. I completed my Masters in Public Health from University College London.

I am also an Associate member of UK Faculty of Public Health contributing to a few of its SIGs – special interest groups.
