President of BSDHT, Helen Minnery, discusses oral care on Talk Radio

Helen Minnery – President of the British Society of Dental Hygiene and Therapy (BSDHT) – was a guest speaker on Talk Radio in March, discussing tooth erosion and its prevention.

She emphasised how diet is one of the most important considerations for avoiding tooth erosion, more so than the products used during daily cleaning. Helen made clear that it is acidic food and drinks that have the greatest influence and that people need to think about how often and when they consume such things.

She also gave specific examples of some of the most acidic foods and drinks to be aware of and offered listeners some practical advice to reduce the potential for enamel erosion.

This is just one way that the BSDHT continues to raise awareness of dental problems among the general population, particularly highlighting the need for improved oral health for children. To find out more about the society and what else it does, contact the team today.
