Healthy Canberra August 2015

Healthy Canberra: Events in August 2015

Corinna Dental Group aims to promote overall wellness, not just your oral health. That is why we’d like to raise awareness about health-related activities happening in the coming month, encouraging you to take part and to spread the word in whichever way you can.

One of the big events happening in August is the Dental Wealth Week, from 3rd to 10th. The Australian Dental Association’s (ADA) annual campaign focuses on different themes each year, each one highlighting the importance of having good oral health. This year’s campaign focuses on the 7 Sporting Sins. Visit this year’s Dental Health Week website to learn more add and keep watching our website as we explore the topics in detail next month.
