Oral Health Promotion

Update September 2019

The Oral Health Promotion Team is not currently accepting any requests for advice or training. We are very much hoping that this will change in the near future.   Please keep coming back to the website for information and updates.


We are closely linked to a local Health Integration Team (HIT), BoNEE, whose remit is to conduct research into and then provide information and advice about reducing inequalities in early years' health. There are three workstreams: Social and Emotional Health and Wellbeing, Nutrition, and Oral Health. Please click the link above for further details of our research work.



The PCDS is commissioned to conduct epidemiological survey work for the local authorities of Bristol, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset and Bath & North East Somerset.  Most years we visit primary schools to examine children's teeth as part of the national NHS Dental Epidemiology Programme. Some years we also take part in the national Child or Adult Dental Health Surveys.  All of these survey results are published, and they often generate headlines in the national press.  In the last survey of 5 year olds (2014-15), Bristol came in at just better than the national average for dental decay.  Click here for further details.
