The 2019 report on the “Oral Health and Psychosocial Needs of Scottish Prisoners and Young Offenders” is available for download. 

The report is the third in a series, which began in 2002, assessing the oral and dental health of prisoners.  It is also the first in the series published since the transfer of dental services to the Public Dental Services of NHS Boards in 2011 and the introduction of the Mouth Matters Oral Health Improvement Programme in 2014. 

This report was lead by a national team based at Dundee Dental School supported by prison staff and local health board survey teams.
