Oral Health promotion aims to improve awareness of dental health and provide information on how to care for your teeth and mouth. A healthy mouth is important as it allows us to smile, speak and eat with confidence and without pain.

Many oral health diseases can be prevented by changing to healthier habits which also improve your general health and wellbeing. Western Sydney Local Health District is committed to promoting oral health.
