Healthy drink choices

Sugary drinks such as soft drink and fruit juice can include a lot of sugar. The sugar can cause teeth to rot and decay. Make the change to water for a healthy mouth and body. 

The video below was created by the Australian Dental Association and the Indigenous Dentists' Association of Australia (IDAA).

Resources

Developed By Dental Health Services Victoria together with artist Madison Connors, a proud and strong Yorta Yorta (Wolithica),Dja Dja Wurrung and Kamilaroi woman and mother to two boorais.

Artwork Story

The four misshapen orbs highlighted in white resemble front teeth and symbolise the four themes integral to the work of the ADA.

The four themes include:

  • Having a healthy and happy smile
  • Achieving a healthy and happy smile through a holistic health approach
  • Activities to achieve holistic health including eating healthy, happiness, a healthy lifestyle, drinking water
  • Community health which contributes to an individual's overall health

The four orbs overlap and meet symbolising community and a holistic connection to health.
The ADA blue is highlighted with complementary colours which are youthful and engaging to encourage a healthy lifestyle.
