Abstract

In order to help dental clinicians working with patients showing signs of dementia the Faculty of General Dental Practice (FGDP) has a new publication; ‘Dementia Friendly Dentistry. Good Practice Guidelines’, edited by Paul Batchelor (2017). This small ring bound book has been developed with input from dementia support organisations, including the Alzheimer’s Society, Healthwatch England, and the London Dementia Clinical Network. This type of collaboration with those outside of dentistry has led to the production of a comprehensive guide that looks at this life limiting illness from a broad perspective that can sometime be missed in dental only publications. As such, this set of guidelines will be useful to new and experienced dental professionals alike and joins the other four similar publications from the FGDP.
