Dental Practitioners Encouraged To Elevate Standards of Service

The increasing burden of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) in Fiji and the region makes good oral health more important in maintaining health and the quality of life for those affected by these life style-related conditions.

While officiating at the Fiji Oral Health Workers Association’s (FOHWA) Excellence Awards Night at Lautoka’s Tanoa Waterfront Hotel on Saturday night, Speaker Dr Jiko Luveni said it was important for dental practitioners to continue to ensure good oral health was accessible to all Fijians.

“We will continue to ensure that all Fijians from all walks of life, especially those with special needs and the elderly are not denied access to good dental health care, no matter where they live,” Dr Luveni said.

“You have seen and learnt about several new innovations and technologies that can improve dental practices and make your service delivery more effective and safer for all Fijians,” she said.

Dr Luveni applauded the association for hosting an impressive world-class two-day conference, bringing in overseas and local experts to upgrade the knowledge and skills of the dental practitioners, prior to the awards night.
