This toolkit is for commissioners and providers of supervised tooth brushing programmes in England.

In 2014, both NICE and PHE published documents that reviewed the evidence of effectiveness of oral health improvement programmes. They both recommended commissioning targeted supervised toothbrushing in early years’ settings. Read Improving oral health: an evidence-informed toolkit for local authorities.

Many local authorities in England already commission such programmes. This toolkit will help commissioners, public health teams and providers make sure their programmes are evidence-based and safe, and have clear accountability and reporting arrangements.
