Take care of your teeth

Update: 11:27AM SELFCARE is crucial for healthy teeth which in turn reduces diseases.

This was the gist of Health Minister Rosy Akbar’s messages at yesterday’s World Oral Health celebrations in Suva.

Ms Akbar explained the link between oral health and unhealthy diets, particularly for food which is high in sugar. 

“Awareness of this magnitude is a great opportunity to increase our reach out and awareness to promote good oral health practices at a national level through accessing information to well understand and take care of their oral health,” she said.

The health ministry will conduct a year end survey to evaluate the outcomes of oral health promotion programs.
