Friday 26th May 2017

CONGRATULATIONS to the winners of this year’s FDS-BASCD small grants scheme! This year, two applicants were awarded small grants and both applications happened to focus upon research involving health visitors.

Sally Weston-Price is an Academic Clinical Fellow in Dental Public Health at Queen Mary University of London. The award will support a mixed methods study exploring factors that could improve the effectiveness of oral health advice and support delivered by health visitors to families to prevent childhood dental caries.

Mary Wilson is Locum Consultant in Dental Public Health based at Public Health Wales. Mary’s award was granted to support her study entitled ‘Acceptability of health visitors to implement Lift the Lip: a screening tool for childhood dental decay’.

Good luck to both award winners. We look forward to hearing about your research in due course!
