Oral health (11.06.2014)
Written on the 11 June 2014
Those of us who grew up in the 1970s will remember the Colgate toothpaste ads with Mrs Marsh.
Mrs Marsh was quite an icon of Australian TV, and in honour of the late Barbara Callcott, who played the role of Mrs Marsh, Colgate has provided a grant to continue the message of good oral health.
The Mrs Marsh grant will allow maternal and child health nurses to have discussions with families about the importance of oral health and provide them with tools to act on those messages.
This will enable maternal and child health nurses to build on the very effective partnerships and the Tooth Packs project already undertaken by Dental Health Services Victoria.
