Oral health planning forms for dental practitioners and people with intellectual disability
Dentists can use this form to outline dental issues, support needs, treatment, and follow up protocols for the patient. This form can be directly communicated to general practitioners and allied health professionals allowing for a shared understanding of the link between oral health and overall health in the patient’s life.
Dentists can use this form to outline the ideal home care for the patient. This form is best completed with the input of the patient and any supporters who accompany them to the appointment. The form provides clear, simple directions for supporters so that they can gather helpful information using observation between appointments.
