FREE CPD in Clinical Diabetes (Part 1): Diabetes and Dentistry
Diabetes is common. Today there are 3.2 million people who have been diagnosed with diabetes and it is estimated there are around 630,000 people in the UK who have diabetes but have not been diagnosed.
Among the general public and even some health-care professionals diabetes is often misunderstood with the result that patients do not always receive the degree of attention and support they deserve.
Unless patients are looked after properly the condition can lead to major health issues and have a devastating effect on the mouth.
