News Bulletin : ADA News Bulletin November 2010
27 NOVEMBER 2010 The ADA is in the process of updating and verifying details for the 2011 Dental Directory, and invites Members to update their details as soon as possible to ensure the details we have on file are correct, and to specify whether they are to be included in the 2011 Dental Directory. There are two methods by which members can update their details: 1. All members who have a valid email address on file with the ADA should have received an email containing a link to a Personalised Uniform Resource Locater (PURL) -- a unique web page prepopulated with the membership details the ADA currently has on file for you; Once this link is clicked and the page has opened, you will be able to view your details, edit them if necessary, specify whether they are to be included in the 2011 Dental Directory, and submit directly to the ADA; 2. Those members who do not have an email address on file with the ADA should have received a letter inviting them to supply their membership/ practice details and return them to the ADA via mail or fax. If you would like to supply your email address to the ADA or are unsure of whether we have the correct email address on file for you, please email the marketing team at memberservices@ ada.org.au, fax your email address to 02 9906 4676, or call 02 9906 4412. PRIVACY ACT 1988 The Dental Directory will continue to be provided to ADA Members free of charge. The Directory will also be made available for public sale. By returning your details to ADA Inc. you will be agreeing for your details to be published in the Dental Directory, and are therefore agreeing to your information being available to the public in the form of the Dental Directory. As an ADA Member you are invited to update your details but you can opt not to include your details in the Dental Directory. Please submit a clear indication if returning by mail, or select 'no' when asked if each practice should be included in the Dental Directory when updating via PURL. CLEAR CHOICE COMPUTERS OR DENTAL HEALTH Sir, I am becoming increasingly concerned about companies that enter into contracts with schools or school P&C groups to install soft drink vending machines in school yards or sell high sugar content donuts through the school tuck shop, thus providing funds for the purchase of equipment for the use of the students. There can be no doubt that the consumption of sugar laden soft drinks or sugar laden donuts causes extra dental disease for the children and extra expense to the parents. One of my young patients who previously had decay free teeth before becoming a school boarder now has white spots or cavities on all of her teeth. I believe the boarding school is failing in its duty of care while acting in loco parentis. The choice seems clear -- computers OR dental health. Surely as a profession we should be doing something to expose this madness.
