Beech Hill care home in Forfar has become the latest in Angus to receive NHS Tayside’s Oral Health Award.

The home is one of three in the country to achieve the award which was developed by the health authority’s oral health improvement team to encourage homes to include new oral health standards as part of their residents’ care packages.

The Community Dental Service has been working in partnership with care homes in Tayside for many years to ensure residents receive appropriate daily oral care and dental treatment. Oral health professionals also offer training and support to home staff.
