About this guidance

This MOOC is based on the excellent guidance from NHS Wales: ‘providing excellence in the care of children affected by decay’. This is a practical guide to support primary care clinical dental teams manage and treat children with decay. The aim if this is to reduce the number of children requiring general anaesthetic for extractions.
