NICE published a new guideline in October calling on local authorities to improve the oral health of their communities through better advice and support in oral hygiene.

The guideline states that local authorities should consider supervised toothbrushing and fluoride varnishing schemes for areas where children are at high risk of poor oral health.

The full guideline can be viewed at http://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ph55.
