Dental Wellness was recently invited to give a presentation to a federally sponsored Conference taking place at the Royal Exhibition Conference Centre called ‘Wellness in the Golden Years’.
Attracting people from all over Queensland from diverse multi cultural backgrounds, the Federal government recognise that Healthcare costs will only get higher if we do not take preventive steps. We were asked to demonstrate how important oral health is in relation to whole body health and ageing.
The conference was well attended and a number of allied health practitioners were able to promote their services. It was great to network with many likeminded practitioners. My dental assistant Laura and Dr Tom were present at our booth where we offered a free pH saliva test to conference attendees. This test highlights the effects of poor saliva flow and an acidic environment on higher risk factors for dental disease.
The Dental Wellness 7 step Oral FITNESS Plan
My presentation highlighted the importance of holistic dentistry and introduced our 7 step Oral FITNESS Plan to attain a Safer Healthy Beautiful Smile. Treatment of gum disease, infected teeth and safe amalgam removal all play a part in the Oral FITNESS Plan with a focus also on nutrition, sleep apnoea and reduced nasal airways effects on oral health.
If you would like a copy of the slides from the presentation I would be more than happy to give this to you for free.
Keep Smiling, It’s good for you!
Dr David Cowhig
