A guide for people with a disability, their family carers, friends and advocates


Very few oral health resources exist for people with intellectual disability. Your Dental Health: A Guide for People with a Disability, Their Family Carers, Friends and Advocates raises the bar in oral health promotion. It is a guide written for Australians with intellectual disability that outlines how to look after your teeth and gums. It demystifies dental care, introduces people to public and private options, and tells you what to expect during a visit to the dentist.
