Looking at the images of elderly & disabled Australians arriving at supermarkets to find the shelves empty is just heartbreaking.
All of our community needs compassion, help and care right now.
So what can we do in the dental community?
Why don't we adopt a similar approach to the supermarkets and allocate specific time in our appointment books to look after older Aussies.
We have dead time due to cancellations so let's make this time productive and positive.
It is our community that supports us so we need to give back this support to everyone.
That is my challenge to all dental practices.
Act now and make a step in a positive direction.
