We are Your local
care home dental provider
We believe everyone should receive high quality oral health and dental services. We understand the challenges of maintaining a healthy mouth and teeth for elderly and less mobile care home residents. Let us deliver our oral health services in partnership with you with our Oral Health Services for Care Homes.
Improving oral health
How we speak, our nutrition and pain-free and enjoyable eating, and our communication with those around us.
• More and more people are living longer, many now retaining their natural teeth. Caring for their mouths can be more challenging for care staff.
• Vulnerable older people in care homes may not be able to perform their own oral care satisfactorily and rely on others for help to maintain this.
• This can be particularly challenging where residents resist or reject care, often as a result of dementia.
• People often come into care homes with pre-existing oral problems as a result of inadequate oral care while living on their own.

OUR CASE STUDIES
Have a read through our Case Studies with some of our existing care homes and see how we work in partnership with them to provide person-centred dental care.
“We’ve a good relationship with Merrylee. If a resident has any problems with their teeth, we call and they help us right away, often going out of their way to drop in any medication for us. When they are on site, the dental team are good at developing a rapport with the residents. They are self-sufficient and always leave things clean and tidy, which is a great help.”
“Some of our residents have advanced dementia, or other health problems associated with old age, so it was important to us to have a dentist who has the same ethos of us – putting the resident at the heart of the care plan.”
