The Fairy Croc Father: Improving Oral Health for Aboriginal Children

GumnutsThe Fairy Croc Father: Improving Oral Health for Aboriginal Children

Aboriginal children fair far worse in terms of oral health than other Australianchildren. They are more likely to have a hospital admission for dental reasons and this is often at a younger age than other children.Aboriginal children have worse dental outcomes and often access dental care, or only when in pain.


Our team at University of Western Australia (reducing Oral health Inequities Research Group) in consultation with the Aboriginal Health Team at South Metro Metropolitan Health Service, have designed a set of posters with important messages about oral health in Aboriginal children. We acknowledge the fantastic assistance in designing the posters from Brian Kent at True Blue Australa, Ian Coate’s wonderful designs and Marlia Fatnowna who helped with ideas and liaison with the community. Involvement with the community is essential to this project. We need your assistance to develop more of these resources and get them out to the community.


We are crowd funding to help us share this resource:
https://chuffed.org/project/oralhealth-for-aboriginalchildren.


We would love to hear stories about using the posters or photos and please disseminate to any groups that might assist with funding
