Smile agus Sláinte – National Oral Health Policy

Good oral health is an integral part of our general health and wellbeing, and important to our enjoyment of life. We need a health service that supports us to have our best oral health, from birth to old age. Smile agus Sláinte provides the guiding principles to transform our current oral healthcare service.

Smile agus Sláinte will facilitate better oral healthcare for everyone. It will support the provision of all levels of care, by appropriate healthcare professionals and in the most suitable settings. Just as importantly, it will support patient choice and access.
