Review of the dental pilot programme clinical pathway

A review of the clinical pathway used by practices in the dental pilot programme makes a number of recommendations to improve the pathway approach.

The recommendations include:

- revising the pathway to provide an option for patients who are currently unwilling or unable to accept the offer of professional preventive activity

- applying the clinical domains of the pathway selectively such as bypassing gum disease or dental decay risk assessment for patients who have no teeth

- revising the need/risk assessment and suggested preventive activities, including interim care management (ICM) for some patient groups.
