We're well and truly racing in to November, and Melbourne Cup was celebrated by our team at the beautiful Eleven Rooftop Bar, where our team won on the race and in fashion. Holly, my wonderful nurse, won best dressed for her tropical inspired outfit, by Camilla. On the work front, Amy, Christine and I have been busy checking in on smiles, and my support team have been fabulous, and are so appreciated.

Well being

Leila Haywood

A great program being run by the Victorian government involves the release of a Well being Plan 2015 - 2019, with key priorities to improve the health and well being of the general public, and especially those who are disadvantaged. 

Oral health has been identified as a key marker of general health, and with greater levels of oral disease being inclined to be an indicator of disadvantage.

Poor diet and consumption of sugar laden drinks are contributors to poor oral health.  An improvement in oral health is enabled with access to fluoride in water and toothpaste, good dental hygiene and regular access to preventive dental care. 

The key areas of focus which are excellent guidelines are:

  • Healthier eating and being more active
  • Tobacco free living
  • Reducing alcohol and drug use, if applicable
  • Improving mental health
  • Prevention of violence and injury within the general public
wellbeing

By investing in the community and caring for individuals, it is hoped that a better sense of wellbeing and support leads to better health outcomes, happier and cared for individuals and an improvement in dental health, as well as over health and quality of life. Hopefully this preventive and advisory service will be expanded to all of Australia, for the benefit of all citizens. 

dental care and wellbeing

Caring for ourselves comes under many chapters;

Being active with at least 30 minutes of moderate activity each day. Attending to diet; eating 2 pieces of fruit each day, 5 serves of vegetables, whole grain and unprocessed/unpackaged foods, and avoiding canned foods. Minimising salt and sugar intake, and in particular decreasing or ceasing consumption of sugar laden drinks, including soft drinks, Coca Cola, energy drinks, and additions of sugar to any foods or drinks. Dental hygiene and care with twice daily brushing and daily flossing, in particular prior to bed times. The Oral B Black, Genius or Smart Series are highly recommended, with use for 2 minutes, twice a day. Difficulty flossing can be overcome with a Reach Access Flosser. Stress reduction and minimisation techniques are also critical to wellbeing, as well as a good work- life - care balance.
