Why doesn’t everyone brush their teeth?

October 26, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 8:40 am


Christine Hancock Founder and Director of C3, Collaborating for Health is joined by Jill Iliffe, Executive Secretary, Commonwealth Nurses and Midwifery Federation to discuss ‘Why doesn’t everyone brush their teeth as part of the Diabetes and Oral Health Series.

Nurses and midwives are in a unique position to raise awareness about the importance of oral health and provide oral health education to individuals, families and communities. Implementing preventive measures early will alleviate individual pain, discomfort and disfigurement and reduce the economic burden of oral diseases on individuals and the health system.

A collaboration between C3 Collaborating for Health, the Commonwealth of Nurses and Midwifery Federation and Learn With Nurses.

Funded by Burdett Trust for Nursing.
