Bronwyn celebrates 13 years with Brisbane dentist Today's Dentistry

News from around the practice

It’s been a big couple of months of celebrating some of our hard-working long term team members with Deanne (16yrs), Monica (10yrs), Bronwyn (13yrs) and Carlene (3yrs) all celebrating work anniversaries.

We also celebrated the Cancer Council’s Biggest Morning Tea and raised over $170 which was both fun and worthwhile. Thank you to everyone who came along!

On our Facebook page you can also check out a number of us having dental check up’s ourselves and there’s a gorgeous baby pic of Sonia’s new baby girl Maddie.

Health fund claim reminder

It’s the end of June so time to remember that some private health funds reset based on the financial year rather than the calendar year.

To make the most out of your annual allowances and benefits check with your fund whether it resets on June 30 or Dec 31 to ensure you maximise the benefits available for dental (and physio, massage etc!).

Call us on 3263 2677 to discuss getting the most out of your dental benefits.

Our dental health talks in the local community schools

2018’s Dental Health Week is coming from the 6-12th of August. This year’s theme is ‘Watch your mouth’ which asks you to look after all the different parts of your oral health from teeth, to gums, to diet and everything in between.

This year as a part of our annual dental education talks to schools around Dental Health Week we are delighted to send Bronwyn off to 4 local primary schools to speak to the Year 2 children about how to look after their dental health.

If your children go to Aspley State School, Kurwongbah State School, Aspley East State School or Craigslea State School please tell them to give Bronwyn a nice warm ‘hello’ and smile if they see her.
