The Dental Decisions Tool: a co-produced tool to support dental care decision-making
Informed by qualitative research, the Dental Decisions Tool was co-produced to gather information on PLwD’s preferences and values for care, and to support PLwD, carers and dentists with dental treatment decision-making. Once completed, the Dental Decisions Tool may also support best interest decision-making for people lacking the capacity to consent for dental treatment. Further research is needed to explore the acceptability, suitability, and effectiveness of this tool.
