Children's oral health

23 January 2015

The Health Committee is to hold a one off evidence session on Tuesday 24 February 2015  to examine children’s oral health in England. NHS figures show that dental caries are the main cause of admission to hospital for children aged 5-9 and in September 2014 Public Health England reported that 12% of children in England had experienced dental decay.

There is no formal call for evidence for this hearing, but the Committee would be pleased to receive written submissions on children’s oral health and NHS dental services for children in England.

Written evidence must be submitted via the Children’s Oral Health web page and the deadline for submitting written evidence is 5.00pm on Friday 13 February 2015 (please note that the portal will close shortly after the deadline).
