Oral Health Promotion
During 2018 the team at Smile Central is celebrating Halloween the dental friendly way from November 1st – 9th encouraging people, especially children to limit those all too common sweet tooth tendency that can occur during this time of year.
We invited all members of the local Aspley and northside surrounding suburbs to bring children along and say hello any time during business hours, with all their excess candy collected celebrating halloween.

For every 100g of lollies we will swap them for 50c per 100g
(maximum of 2kg per child or
5kg per family)
Yes that’s right, we will buy back your candy as our special way of promoting, healthy teeth for a healthy life. Smile Central, your local dental practice in Aspley
But wait there’s more ! Many of our staff are apart of ADF families, so all lollies collected from ‘the candy buy back’ will be donated to members of the Australian Defence Force currently serving in the Middle East on operations. That’ll put a smile on their faces too.

Dental Health Week
Dental Health Week, takes place in the first full week of August every year, is the Australian Dental Association’s major annual oral health promotion. Its aim is to educate Australians about the importance of maintaining good oral health in every aspect of their lives. This year’s topic focused on women’s oral health. We celebrated by engaging with local business in the community to encourage women in the workforce to visit their dentist to talk about some common dental symptoms that women experience throughout life.
If you would like one of us to come and talk to your community group about dental health or one of these topics, feel free to contact and enquire with our Oral Health Therapist to organise an information session.
