British Society of Paediatric Dentistry policy document on dental neglect in children  - updated 25 September 2023 The British Society of Paediatric Dentistry's (BSPD) first policy document on dental neglect was published online in 2009. It proposed a new original definition of dental neglect, discussed the identification of dental neglect and recommended adopting a tiered response, with three stages of intervention according to level of concern. Since then, these concepts have been widely adopted in the UK and beyond. The update has built on the significant advances in both research and practice since then. Link:
