SIG Committee

The All Wales Special Inerest Group in Oral Health Care (SIG) is an advisory group of Special Care Dentists and Dental Care Professionals working in the Community Dental and Hospital Dental Service in Wales.

Our role is to advise the Clinical Directors of Community Dental Services in Wales on issues related to the oral health care of people with disability.
Recently, the group has actively been pursuing the development of clinical standards and guidelines for special care dentistry in Wales. The projects undertaken include dysphagia and oral health, domiciliary care, physical intervention, incapacity to consent and medical history.
The aim of our website is to inform the dental profession, health care professionals and the general public about issues affecting oral health of disabled people. Although we have taken all reasonable steps to provide you with access to adequate and reputable content, we cannot guarantee its accuracy, integrity and quality.
We hope you find the information on this site is a useful resource
