COHUNA residents are being asked to consider fluoridation in a bid to improve oral health.

A drop-in information session has been organised for Tuesday, August 4, at the Gateway to Gannawarra Centre on King George St, Cohuna.

Fluoridation is credited with strengthening teeth against tooth decay and preventing cavities.

According to the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), 90 per cent of Victorians have access to optimally fluoridated drinking water.

Dr Virginia Dickson-Swift, from La Trobe Rural Health School, and Helen Walsh, from DHHS, will be joined by the shire’s Narelle O’Donoghue to answer questions on the value of water fluoridation.

The information session runs from 1:30pm to 3pm.

For information, contact Dr Dickson-Swift on 5444 7852 or v.dickson-swift@latrobe.edu.au
