 Joint position statement on oral health and nutrition - DAA-DHSV

The Dietitians Association of Australia and Dental Health Services Victoria launched a joint position statement on oral health and nutrition in May 2016. The position statement includes practical information for dietitians, including an overview of oral health risk factors, a summary of protective features of the diet, and guidance on oral health and nutrition through the life stages. Evidence tells us there’s a lifelong synergy between diet and oral health. This position statement outlines how dietitians and other nutrition professionals, working in a range of settings, can incorporate oral health as part of their practice.

The position statement can be located on the DAA and DHSV wesbites.
