Leichhardt St Dental Practice takes the health and safety of our patients and staff very seriously. The Dental Board of Australia has now ruled all dental practices are restricted to limited emergency treatment only.
From 1st April we have closed and hope to re-open 1st June. We are however available for limited emergency treatment by appointment.
If you are an existing patient of our practice, please contact us via our contact form , call / text Dr Barbara Szylkarski via her mobile or the practice answering machine, even if it is a quick question, chat or for some serious help.
We look forward to seeing you all again soon once this disruption is over, take care.
It can be very difficult to cut back on sugar as it finds its way into many of our daily foods. Sugar is everywhere from our cereals and sandwiches to our daily dinners.
Sugar makes our food taste great making us crave more. At the same time it does not fill us up, encouraging us to consume larger portions.
Fats and sugars have always been part of our lives. However the new abundance of carbohydrates, in particular sugar, has led to the obesity and diabetes epidemic.
And as the saying goes “the mouth is the window to the body”. The increase in cavities in our teeth, particularly in children, forms part of this same epidemic.
Little by little it is possible to significantly cut back on your sugar, making room for the times in life you require a little treat, such as Easter!
