Brushing up for Dental Health Week

By Kingston Beach Dental


DENTAL Health Week runs from 5-11 August and this year’s theme is: “How is your oral health tracking?”

The aim is to make everyone aware of the key things they need to do to keep their teeth and gums healthy, leading to overall health improvements.

Kingston Beach Dental will be promoting the key messages that the Australian Dental Association wishes to share.

This includes brush your teeth twice a day; clean in between the teeth with floss or an interdental brush; eat a balanced diet with limited sugar and visit the dentist regularly for check-ups.

They aim to motivate people to view oral health as an important area for attention, despite their overcrowded schedules and busy lifestyles.

Kingston Beach Dental is running lots of Dental Health Week activities and events and the whole team is passionate about oral health care and education.

Are you one of the 65 per cent of Australians who has not seen a dentist in the past two years?

The experienced and gentle practitioners at Kingston Beach Dental encourage you to take a proactive and preventative approach to your oral health rather than waiting for a dental emergency.

Dr Martyn Sweet (practice principal), Dr Ram Pandey and Dr Emma Grubb consider regular preventative dental appointments as much of a priority as seeing the hairdresser or booking your car in for servicing.

Six-monthly check-ups help to identify any issues early so that they are manageable and affordable.

Oral health therapists Hannah Colantoni and Stephanie Gray work closely with the dentists and run the hygiene and children’s dental program.

Their roles are vital in educating and advising patients about how to floss and clean properly.

They also explain the importance of eating a healthy, balanced diet and limiting the consumption of sugary foods and drinks to minimise tooth decay.

Statistics show that an alarming 73 per cent of people aged 14 to 18 are consuming too much sugar, with significant effects on their oral and general health.

So, during Dental Health Week, take heed of these messages and get your dental health back on track.

If you are looking for a new dental practice that provides quality and caring dentistry and service with integrity, please visit or phone 6229 6775 to make an appointment.

The warm and friendly team look forward to welcoming existing and new patients to the comfortable premises with free parking at Shop 98 Channel Court, Kingston.

They look forward to providing the kind and caring experience that Kingston Beach Dental is well known for.
