Why choose this course?

Poor oral health has been linked to several systemic health problems, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and respiratory infections.  Oral hygiene training for disability support workers is important because it can prevent oral health problems, improve overall health, enhance quality of life, and empower clients with disabilities.
Created with the support of the Wrigley Company Foundation and Australian Dental Association Foundation, this course will help Disability Support Workers maintain their client’s good oral health, which can prevent painful and costly dental procedures.
