This chapter focuses on domiciliary dental care. Domiciliary care refers to the service that reaches out to care for those who cannot reach a service themselves. This term applies to the care provided in the patient's domicile or place of residence, rather than care carried out in a dental clinic. The chapter begins with a discussion on the generic issues surrounding the provisions of domiciliary care. The second section of the chapter addresses the management of specific problems that arise in the domiciliary setting.
