A Guide for Carers of the Elderly

Welcome to Dr Peter Lloyd King’s special needs in dentistry website. Dental Rescue: A Guide for Carers of the Elderly has been developed in response to Dr King’s concern that carers feel ill-equipped to provide oral care to dependent elderly people.

Dental Rescue: A Guide for Carers of the Elderly This video is an ideal tool for orientating professional and non-professional carers in oral health practices. It will develop skills in dental hygiene; identify how to prevent dental problems occurring; teach management strategies for residents with challenging behaviours; address occupational health and safety issues; and give an appreciation of how oral health affects well being.
