Farewell January!

Leila Haywood

Brisbane Dentistry Smile Boutique

Bonsoir! Well that went fast. January is almost a fleeting memory, as we venture into the year. As one might expect, it has been so far full of smiles that visit us, requesting to be checked, professionally scaled, whitened and the like. The year is promising to be another great one for our team. Sonia, our patient co-ordinator is on reception. Nikita is the senior assistant to Dr Amy Daley, who is working Tuesday, Wednesday and Fridays from 7.30am to 3.30pm. Holly is the senior assistant to Leila Haywood, as well as her training up in 2016 and venturing into the business of beauty, which is perfect for her, given her eye for precision and style. Christine is our dental hygienist, who attends to the magic that is Zoom technology, with transformations that impress our dentists. She has been caring for all the children who were on school holidays, starting kindy, prep, and school and the teenagers heading to high school and uni. The start of the year is the perfect time for a smile check, and everything else in between, and Christine assists our dentist to have all of our patients having the healthiest smiles possible.

Best Wishes to everyone as the year is well and truly underway, and wishing you days of happiness and sunshine. It would be mine and Dr Amy's pleasure to be of assistance with any dental requirements. 

Kindest Regards

Leila Haywood // Dentist // Brisbane Smile Boutique

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

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. 

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.
