Last month we attended another great conference convened by our national professional body The Australian Dental Prosthetist Association.
Over two days a wide range of topics were discussed.
From strategies for dealing with anxious patients to the latest digital advances to name just a few.
Taking part in these opportunities for professional development ensures best practice in our clinic.
Getting together with colleagues is also an invaluable part of these events.
One of the biggest conversations over coffee was the push for a universal dental scheme along the lines of Medicare.
Oral health and general health are inseparable. An alarmingly high percentage of Australians cannot afford good dental care which impacts on many chronic illnesses.
One of the roles our association takes on is advocating to have this issue taken seriously by government
Lobby your local member of parliament and let them know that you want a fully funded universal dental scheme
