The Association of Dental Groups (ADG) is comprised of a range of dental group providers who remain dedicated to improving dental access for patients across the country.

For example, the Essex team from ADG member Community Dental Services (CDS) CIC recently partnered with Southend Clinical Commissioning Group to produce a series of flash cards to be used by local dentists to improve treatment explanations to patients. Designed to help people with a reduced understanding and alleviate anxiety, it is hoped that the resource will be extended across Essex and Thurrock Local Authority.

Lorraine Mattis, Operations Director for CDS in Essex said: “It is CDS’ mission to provide oral health in evermore communities so it is important for us to work with partners to do whatever we can to provide oral health advice and support people with additional needs to visit the dentist. Providing information that is easier to understand is a very important part of reducing anxiety.”

This is just one example of how ADG members are taking steps to help deliver the dental care their patients need. To find out what else the ADG does, visit the website today.
