Dental Health Week

The Australian Dental Association's main oral health promotion and education campaign, Dental Health Week takes place every year during the first week of August. In 2015, the theme was 'Sports and Oral Health' and aimed to raise awareness of three main issues:

  • sports-related dental trauma and tooth first aid
  • sports hydration, dental caries and erosion
  • wearing mouthguards to prevent the expense and trauma of dental injuries.

‚ÄčAs part of Dental Health Week in 2015, people were informed of the damage caused by sugars and acids in sports and energy drinks and advised of quick, easy ways in which they could improve their oral health.
