Held in Sydney, the Inaugural National Forum was well attended by both oral health professionals and other health professionals including dietitians, child health nurses and pharmacists. The speakers were Specialist Paediatric Dentist Assoc/Prof Richard Widmer, Dietitian Lindy Sank and Director of Health Promotion South Australian Dental Services Christine Morris.
Topics covered included:
- What is your role in preventing dental disease?
- How do you recognise dental disease and refer for treatment?
- What are the dietary issues common to both oral and general health?
- What are the links between oral and general health?
Participants were engaged and eager to learn and were provided with some take home resources including a postcard of ACFF Oral Health Tips. Many complimented the valuable learning experience.
