We here at Don’t Brush It Off are very conscious of the fact that we do not know everything there is to know about dental health. Your first source of information should be your dentist, as they are qualified to answer any and all of your questions. But we understand you like to do your own research, and understand more about your personal health and wellbeing. So we’ve compiled a list of places you can check out to get accurate and insightful information about your oral health.
The Australia Dental Association (ADA) – The organisation that represents 90% of Australia’s dentists. They represent one of the most reputable places to get information, and their information is really top notch.
Their website is here: http://www.ada.org.au/
Australian Institute of Health and Wellbeing (AIHW) – While the information they publish here isn’t overly engaging, the government publishes useful resources to help you not only keep your mouth healthy, but your entire body.
Brands – If you ignore all the shameless self promotion, oral care brands often represent great places to find information. For instance, Oral B and Colgate both have well moderated facebook pages, which direct to their respective websites. Here you can find articles and information around various dental diseases, as well as suitable products.
Oral B: https://www.facebook.com/oralbau
Newspapers, and other media sites often have health and wellbeing sections, and here you can find useful resources, interviews and opinions that you might not otherwise have access to.
The best of the bunch is the Huffington Post’s Health section, which you can find here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/healthy-living/
