Refer to Section 12 of the full guidance.

  • Assign a recall interval that is based on caries risk and specific to the oral health needs of the child.

At each recall visit:

  • Carry out a focused oral health review, including:
    • asking again about toothbrushing practice and dietary habits
    • asking about compliance with any agreed action plans
    • checking the condition of fissure sealants
    • monitoring any lesions managed with prevention alone
    • reassessing the child’s caries control and caries risk
  • If caries is not being effectively controlled, consider alternative management options and the need for additional community/home support.
  • Create a new personal care plan as required and maintain comprehensive records.
