Good oral health is vital to keeping good overall health

Unfortunately many of us – young and old – experience tooth decay and other common oral health problems.

With regular check-ups by oral health professionals and by understanding how to look after our teeth and mouth properly, many common problems can be treated or avoided all together.

If you have concerns about your children’s oral health contact the Ministry of Health to enrol your child for dental care – it’s free until their 18th birthday.
