By definition, hard to reach patients present a difficult challenge for all branches of medicine. And dentistry is no different. Earlier this year we wrote about the development of our work with the homeless. Now, the story has also been picked up by the excellent online magazine BDJ Team.
Hard to reach patients
Experience has taught us that this is a long journey, not a quick fix. Building confidence with any hard to reach patient group is fundamental to being able to assist. Also putting yourselves, and the service, into their environment makes it more accessible and less intimidating.
Many members of our team have been involved in work with hard to reach patients in Manchester and Salford. This article is a thank you to them, as well as the dedicated team members who are featured. Well done all of you!
