Rates of psychological trauma are increasing in the community. Psychological trauma symptoms may prevent patients from being able to access or tolerate dental treatment. The importance of dental teams providing equitable person-centred care by adopting a trauma-informed approach is discussed. One way to support dental services to be trauma-informed is through training staff in psychological trauma. An example from a Scottish Dental Hospital is provided. Directions for future research are discussed and the next steps in the journey to develop trauma-informed dental services are outlined.
