ADA launches competition for Dental Health Week

tooth-friendly sweet treat recipe

In line with this year’s Dental Health Week (DHW 3-9 August) focus on sugar, the Australian Dental Association (ADA) is planning to highlight the effects of sugar on oral health, and how to interpret nutrition information panels, all while shedding light on hidden sugars. 

Due to COVID-19, the Colgate-supported ‘brush and paste’ competition will not be held in 2020; however, it doesn’t mean that you won’t have an opportunity to be involved. Instead of submitting ideas for oral health promotion activities, this year the ADA is asking you to submit your best tooth-friendly sweet treat recipe. 

As part of the 2020 DHW Campaign, the ADA will release a tooth-friendly sweet treat cookbook in line with the campaign on sugar. This will be a great resource for patients when discussing nutrition, sugar and oral health—plus it will be the chance to get your recipe and a profile of your practice published in the book. 

Recipes must be for a sweet treat; they must be your own work and not duplicated from an existing source, and you must be an ADA member to be eligible. Ingredients must be listed in metric measures and product brand names should be avoided where possible. The 20 best recipes (‘the winners’) will be chosen to be included in the tooth-friendly cookbook. 

Entries are now open and will close Friday 19 June 2020.For more information and to enter visit the ADA website.
