For public

Prevention is the key to good oral health, and you can best take care of your teeth and mouth by:

  • leading a healthy lifestyle- having a low-sugar diet, not smoking and having no/little alcohol,
  • having good daily oral hygiene- brushing your teeth well twice a day with fluoride toothpaste,
  • making best use of health services- having regular checks-ups at a dental practice.
