Consent forms

The Childsmile fluoride varnish consent form and the fluoride varnish update (external link) information are published and printed in English. If a parent needs language interpretation to help them to complete the consent form they are directed to Childsmile staff who will be able to help.

Local contact details must be affixed to the back of each consent form in the space provided.

The oral health information which supports consent is available in Traditional and Simplified Chinese, Polish, Romanian, Arabic and Urdu. Please note that the consent form section is only available in English.

If a consent form is returned with details which require translating into English, personal details must be removed from the copy being translated to retain patient confidentiality.
