FREE CPD accredited regional sessions on the oral health impact of our changing dietary habits

Wrigley Oral Healthcare Programme is delighted to announce a series of FREE CPD accredited regional seminars across the UK presenting findings from a new report on the changing dietary habits of UK adolescents and adults and the subsequent oral health implications.

The research, to be presented by Ali Lowe, BSDHT Council member and former recipient of The Probe’s Hygienist of the Year award, provides new evidence around the impact of our snacking culture and includes the latest thinking on the topic from both academics and practitioners. The seminars will provide an understanding of the impact of dietary changes on the oral health of high risk groups, the existing preventative measures as recognised by the dental community, and finally, provide the opportunity to learn more about the potential benefits of chewing sugarfree gum as part of a wider oral health routine.

Chewing sugarfree gum after eating or drinking helps neutralise plaque acids[i] and promotes the remineralisation of tooth enamel, assisting in keeping teeth clean and healthy.ii,iii,iv,v
