Engage with your patients and the community about their oral health this Dental Health Week

Did you know:
  • 65% of Australians haven't visited a dentist in the past two years
  • 63% only visit if they have a specific problem
  • 25% of adults only brush once a day.
These statistics just go to show how important it is to engage with the community about the importance of dental health. Dental Health Week provides us with the perfect opportunity to do so.

The theme for 2017 Dental Health Week is Oral Health for Busy Lives. It aims to encourage Australians from all walks of life to treat their oral health as an indispensable part of their day, no matter how crowded their diary may be.
