Diabetes Standards Guide

13/08/2019

The Office of Chief Dental Officer, and NHS England & NHS Improvement  National Diabetes Prevention Programme have produced the commissioning standard: Dental Care for People with Diabetes.  This Commissioning Standard will support the local implementation of pathways for patients to enable the benefits of timely and effective periodontal management on oral health and importantly general health to be realised.  People with type 2 and type 1 diabetes need to access effective dental care and local pathways should be developed to support this. This will require local engagement between providers and commissioners of dental services and diabetes services, and the commissioning of dental services with the appropriate skills and competences to deliver the care required.

To download a copy of this standard go to  https://www.england.nhs.uk/primary-care/dentistry/dentistry-publications/#standards
