News Bulletin : ADA News Bulletin April 2011
16 APRIL 2011 Further, if ADA doesn’t run public awareness campaigns, who will? Your ADA President and Executive continue to lobby the Federal government to provide funding for a national oral health preventive campaign. Everyone remembers campaigns such as ‘Slip Slop Slap’ and road safety campaigns but there has never been a campaign to prevent oral diseases. Hopefully, a government will soon follow ADA’s advice and work cooperatively in a preventive strategy for the Australian community. bAbIES And TOddLERS The final campaign for 2011 will be in October. This campaign is held every two years and focuses on oral health issues relating to pregnancy, breast-feeding, babies and children. It is one of our most popular campaigns with the public. OTHER ACTIvITIES Apart from coordinating these public awareness campaigns during the year, the Oral Health Committee is involved in a wide range of other activities. We meet three times per year at ADA Inc. in Sydney. These meetings take almost an entire day. However, a lot of other business is conducted, almost daily, by email. Below is a summary of some other core activities of the Oral Health Committee: • Media monitoring to keep us up-to-date with dental matters that occur in the Australian media. • Review of ADA policies, when requested by the Policy Committee or ADA Council. • Members of the committee are often called upon for interviews with the Australian media, both print and electronic. • Responding to queries from the public, via the ADA website. • Cooperation with dental companies who are promoting oral health. • Preparation of and sourcing of articles from invited authors, for the ADA News Bulletin on topics relating to oral health. • Other issues relating to oral health, awareness and education. AdA bRAnCH ACTIvITIES Some of the ADA Branches have very active oral health committees or equivalent. These branch committees do an amazing job of arousing media activity in their own state, which greatly enhances any national campaign. In addition, ADA Branches are to be commended on their own public awareness campaigns which are run quite independently of the Federal campaigns. These also help to raise the profile of the profession, increase public awareness and improve the oral health of our community. PLEASE COnTACT US The Oral Health Committee welcomes your comments and suggestions. The members of the Committee are: Peter Alldritt (Chairman) (SA); Michael Foley (Vice-Chairman) (Qld); Lena Lejmanoski (WA); David Manton (Vic); Philippa Sawyer (NSW); and Derek Lewis (Consultant) (Qld).
