SPECIAL HEALTHCARE NEEDS
As part of my Oral Health Promotion course with NUIG, I completed a case study on dental decay in children with special healthcare needs.
The purpose of my study was to explore whether parents and caregivers of children with special health care needs have the skills and knowledge to perform adequate oral health care.
It is apparent that dental decay in children with special health care needs has evolved greatly in the last number of years.
I created a training manual that is designed to increase skills & knowledge enabling each person to perform oral hygiene care effectively from the comfort of their own homes.
Participants will have more control over the factors that have affected their lives.
