• Oral Cancer is a potentially fatal disease that can affect anyone from young adults right through to the elderly. It is caused by a variety of lifestyle risks, many of which are a part of the lives of the majority of Australians. Although it may only occur in relatively small numbers, the number of cases is on the rise, making it a disease that should be taken very seriously. It is an insidious, aggressive disease with a survival rate of only 50% over 5 years and it often goes undetected until it is at an advanced stage.

  • For many people holidays involve sun, surf and beaches, and a cocktail by the pool. But for increasing numbers of people, they also mean a chance to get some dental work done ‘on the cheap’ overseas, part of a trend popularly known as “dental tourism”.

    The decision to become a dental tourist usually comes to down to one simple thing – saving money. And while it’s true you may save some money in the short term, the reality is that things can go wrong and all those expected savings can quickly disappear.

  • During pregnancy we are bombarded with information and it’s easy to get overloaded. Sometimes it can be hard to tell fact from  fiction, and especially if this is your  first child then you’re probably being subjected to advice and helpful hints from everyone you know! When choosing which advice to follow remember that your health and the health of your baby should be the most important factor. They are also intrinsically linked, which means if you ignore your oral health and how it changes during pregnancy it could be harmful to your baby.
