Support for oral health from the start

Following local civic conversations and a short series of Support from the Start facilitated meetings there are now plans to significantly increase the level of dental health promotion and to improve access to dental health services for young children in the Wallyford and Whitecraig areas. 


There is likely to be significant activity on dental health promotion, including the opportunity to access a fluoride tooth varnish scheme at a variety of community settings such as Stay & Play groups, Playgroups, Mother & Toddler groups and nurseries.


Also under consideration is the provision of a mobile dental treatment service for those children identified through these groups as requiring treatment.
