Mouth Matters seeks to promote oral health within the prison system.
Mouth Matters is an evidence-informed oral health promotion resource. It has been compiled under expert guidance and is designed to enable health professionals, prison staff and support workers to meet the specific oral health needs of offender populations in Scotland. Its overall purpose is to raise awareness of the key factors that affect oral health and provide core motivational interviewing skills that can be used to support an oral health brief intervention tailored to offenders.
These organisations are involved in many projects running in prisons around Scotland
