In response to recent revised guidance 2 sections of Delivering Better Oral Health (DBOH) version 3 have been updated:
- Section 4 Healthier eating advice and relevant summary tables: to reflect the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN) Carbohydrates and Health report (2015)
- Section 8 Alcohol misuse and oral health and relevant summary table: to include The Chief Medical Officer for England guidelines on lower risk drinking. This is further supported by an online training module for anyone wanting the knowledge and skills to deliver very brief alcohol consumption advice: https://www.alcohollearningcentre.org.uk/eLearning/IBA/
In addition, 2 NEW DBOH factsheets will be published which summarise the key actions for oral health improvement for adults and children.
Version 4 is likely to be publishedin 2018/19.
DBOH is a key source of evidence based advice for dental teams and wider professional groups.
