    The terrible impact of a sporting injury.

    We remind all patients of the terrible impact a sporting injury can have on our teeth, jaw and soft tissues. We are heading once again into Winter sports time, which is when we see an increase in sporting injuries.  A knock to the mouth can result in losing teeth as well as significant long-term damage.

    Sugar-free doesn’t mean healthy.

    Sugar-free doesn’t mean healthy.

    There are many sugar-free options on the supermarket shelves which make reducing sugar easier.  We can be sugar-free, FODMAP, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan and HALAL in one easy trip.  The sugar-free choices are terrific, but these sugar-free options will still cause us decay if not limited as strictly as the sugar containing version.  If you have

    2020, the year that was. What will 2021 bring us?

    2020 is the Year of the Nurse and Midwife, and there has surely been no greater appreciation of our wonderful healthcare staff than during the events of this year.  Healthcare workers who have constantly put themselves in danger to provide us with care make us eternally grateful.  For some of us 2020 has been the

    Halloween fun! Book your child’s dental check and pay with lollies…

    October is one of the least favourite months on the dental calendar, as Australia seems to be embracing more the concept of Halloween.  All that sugar, hard and sticky lollies are terrible for teeth.  Dr Stone is determined to fight back this year with a sugar swap. Children 12 and under are encouraged to: Make

    Dental Health Week asks us, how much sugar is in our trolley?

    Dental Health Week asks us, how much sugar is in our trolley?

    Dental Health Week is scheduled for 3rd – 9th August 2020.  This year it is all about those hidden sugars.  It is quite amazing how many foods have sugar in them that we wouldn’t even think about.  For example; some of those lovely muesli bars that are labelled as healthy have large amounts of sugar
