THE'WE FIGHT CHALKY TEETH' SPECIALIST NETWORK

A new addition to The Chalky Teeth Campaign, 'We Fight Chalky Teeth' is a collaboration between specialist dental practices and The D3 Group (D3G). This educational initiative aims to (1) help the public find specialist practices with strong interests in chalky teeth problems and so learn scientifically-based information about chalky teeth (D3s), and (2) enable member practices to keep up to date with "everything D3" and support D3G's mission for research and education.


To accomplish this aim, 'We Fight Chalky Teeth' practices will:

  • > give your child a special 'Chalky Teeth Check-up' and happily discuss chalky teeth with you
  • > work with you and others to optimise dental management and affordability
  • > make Sam's Storybook and other D3G educational materials freely available to you
  • > guide you to extra learning via the Chalky Teeth Campaign page on their websites (click below for examples)

INFORMATION FOR DENTAL PRACTITIONERS

As “the fight against tooth decay” slogan enjoys universal recognition, we thought it logical to extend a “battle” metaphor to the world of chalky teeth and allied tooth decay. Hence “we fight chalky teeth” was born as an informative and self-explanatory catchphrase for dental practitioners concerned about state-of-the-art management of chalky teeth/D3s.


This emerging network venture (dubbed WFCT) is already shaping up as a 4-way win. For the public, having a practice-based face to the Chalky Teeth Campaign adds a more personal touch to existing endorsements from professional organisations and industry. Within the field, WFCT has much potential to serve as expert opinion, informer for education, contributor to research, and testbed for industry. Network members stand to benefit from associations with each other and across D3G more broadly. And, in addition to all the above, D3G benefits from allied revenue to support research and education.


Being at a formative stage, this initiative is currently restricted to specialist dental practices in Australia and New Zealand only. We hope that, once the specialist network has consolidated, the WFCT initiative will diversify to include other branches of the D3 family, both locally and abroad.
