RECUR: Comparison of a new with standard child and family primary dental care service to reduce the re-occurrence of childhood dental caries



Collaborating Investigators/Institutions:

Prof Cynthia Pine, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust

Project Summary

The main aim of the study is to find out if a new dental service led by dental nurses who have been trained in a brief negotiated interview for oral health (DR-BNI) using motivational interviewing techniques, is a more cost-effective service than that currently offered in England and Scotland by dentists in dental practices, in reducing the re-occurrence of dental decay within two years in young children with previous dental extractions.
