Children in care have twice as many urgent dental health needs than the general child population
Children in care have twice as many urgent dental health needs than the general child population
Children in care, including those in foster and residential care, have double the rates of urgent dental treatment and are half as likely to attend dental services as the general child population. Children in care are also twice as likely to have a tooth extraction under general anaesthetic. A new study led by the University of Glasgow and published in the journal Archives of Disease in Childhood, has found that there are stark differences between the dental health of children who are looked after in care and those who are not.

Fishing for DNA during breeding season could help control invasive species
Fishing for DNA during breeding season could help control invasive species
Research reveals that an invasive crayfish species is easier to detect in water samples during breeding, which could lead to better control. An invasive species is any animal or plant that is introduced to an area and has the capacity to cause harm. They can impact native wildlife by outcompeting them for food and damaging local environments, for example grey squirrels outcompeting reds.
