This activity is part of a larger project titled 'Communities of Practice - Dental Health for People with Disabilities' which aims to improve the oral health of people with intellectual disability and increase the volume of people with intellectual disability being treated in community and private dental practice settings.
In the short-term, this current project will identify best practice solutions for Australian dental professionals to include people with intellectual disability in their everyday practice. In the long-term, this interdisciplinary project will establish an evidence-base model derived by dentists, people with intellectual disability, disability support professionals, and allied health practitioners for use across both dentistry and disability sectors.
