The provision of dental and oral health advice by community pharmacists

Abstract

A common theme of recently published strategies for improving oral health has been the need to involve healthcare professionals so as to influence a wider section of the population, many of whom do not routinely attend a dentist. The purpose of this paper is to review changes that have affected pharmacy practice in the community, to identify opportunities and barriers to the provision of dental and oral health advice in that setting, and to propose increased collaboration between the dental team and pharmacy staff
