Patient Education (DHS)
Detailed oral health related lessons have been developed using the Curriculum Framework as a guide. Each lesson includes an outline, materials and resources required, background information, activities and worksheets.
Dental health information (pamphlets, books, brochures, videos, flash card sets) for infants, toddlers, school age children, teenagers, adults and special needs groups can be obtained from the Dental Health Education Unit. In addition to Dental Services' own publications, resources have been obtained from oral health groups (e.g. Colgate, Oral-B), other dental services, and other organisations (e.g. Indian Dental Service). Dental Health Services' staff and trainee Dental Therapy students can borrow resources from the Dental Health Services Library.
