Part of the national SeaFit programme funded by Seafarers UK and delivered by Smile Together in partnership with The Fishermen’s Mission and Seafarers Hospital Society.
Whilst we can’t provide dental treatment from a mobile unit this year due to the pandemic, in line with Covid-19 safety measures, we’re bringing fishermen and their dependent family members an experienced qualified oral health dental nurse to the harboursides to:
Improve knowledge and awareness of good oral health
Share ways to reduce sugar intake and change eating habits
Provide toothbrushing advice to improve dental health
Signpost to emergency dental provision if required
Tell you about our plans for next year’s visit with a mobile dental unit
Social distancing will be observed and in some locations there will also be free Healthy Lifestyle advice and information from other healthcare providers.
