We have begun a three year project to develop a new national oral health policy. The project is being led by Dr Dympna Kavanagh, Chief Dental Officer.
The project will have three key parts. The first will be a needs assessment, which will inform how new services should be provided. The second part will be a review of resources. Thirdly, there will be consultation with stakeholders, including the public, on new ways of delivering oral health services.
