It may be fear, finances, or because they aren’t aware of the modern options that can restore their oral health. Dental Greetings offers a variety of special offers and consultations to help individuals receive essential dental services.

Children ages 2-17 that are eligible for the CDBS government initiative can receive dental treatment at the Banyo dental clinic. Services include routine checkups, cleaning, fillings, x-rays, root canal therapy, extractions and fissure sealing. The age of the child doesn’t matter – dental problems can detrimentally impact a child’s physical health, confidence and self-image at any age. Adults don’t have to defer or forgo basic checkups and cleanings with the No Gap opportunity at the Geebung dentist. Individuals will have no out-of-pocket expenses when they have dental coverage through a private health care policy. Services include a comprehensive exam, scale and clean, fluoride treatment, and x-rays if required. Individuals can also avail themselves of a customized home teeth whitening package for just $199. The practice offers adults a comprehensive checkup and cleaning, along with fluoride and treatment plan if required for just $179 and the cost is $99 for children under 12. Mouthguards for sports participation are available for youngsters and adults with No Gap payments for health fund patients and $90 for those with no health fund coverage. The special offers at Dental Greetings make it easy to obtain no-cost and low-cost treatment for children and adults to identify potential problems, repair damaged teeth, and protect and restore smiles with modern techniques and technology. The practice’s services enable anyone to receive treatment for existing difficulties and put them on a pathway to a celebrity smile.

The questionnaire opened in September 2018 at the same time as the Colonoscopy Clinical Care Standard, created by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (ACSQHC). While the Standard was a welcome first step in outlining the care people who have a colonoscopy should receive, it did not contain specific indicators to measure the patient’s experience. “Communicating the unique patient perspective is vital for understanding how to make services better and safer for patients,” said Bowel Cancer Australia CEO Julien Wiggins. “As more and more people share their experience, findings will help shape Bowel Cancer Australia’s initiatives and can be used more broadly as a valuable resource to inform policy, programs, and investment in colonoscopy quality and care,” Mr Wiggins said. The responses from approximately 1,500 women and men across the country ranging in age from 18 to over 75 years old, who had recently undergone colonoscopy provide unique insights not previously reported. Some of the better aspects of the colonoscopy experience highlighted by respondents included: clear information about what to expect at each stage; provision of guidance regarding the post-procedure process; and feelings of trust and confidence in staff.      Areas for improvement highlighted by respondents indicated: the referral process should be more proactive and timelier; more choice should be made available in terms of bowel prep; and all relevant information in the colonoscopy report should be reviewed with the patient. Nine in ten respondents (94%) said a wait time of “less than 1 month” is about right, but most respondents (59%) waited more than the recommended 30 days from referral before receiving their colonoscopy. Three in ten (32%) respondents indicated they waited more than two months; nearly one in ten of those (7%) reported waiting six months or more. Respondents receiving their colonoscopy within the public health system reported waiting on average 2.5 months (150% longer than recommended by the World Health Organisation). "Proactive and timely referral is imperative, especially for symptomatic patients and is something that Bowel Cancer Australia continues to actively campaign for," Mr Wiggins said. Bowel preparation required for colonoscopy was cited regularly as the key area for improvement. When asked what could have made the experience better, most respondents’ comments (41%) related to improving the bowel prep experience. Nearly all respondents (97%) felt information about how to prepare for their colonoscopy was clear; however, most respondents (83%) were not offered a choice regarding the type of bowel prep medicine given. Two in five (41%) respondents mentioned they would have liked more options. Private hospital patients rated their experiences more positively than public hospital patients throughout the process, but both private and public hospital patients indicated the best part of their colonoscopy experience was positive interactions with staff (36%). “With 1.1 million colonoscopies to be performed in Australia in 2020 – 21, the My Colonoscopy Experience questionnaire will remain open indefinitely – because every patient’s feedback about their colonoscopy experience is unique and valuable.

The millennial founders, Cade Turland (31) and Forbes 30 Under 30 list-maker, Georgia Branch (30) are de- termined to carve out their piece of the world’s biggest CBD market, projected to be worth US$22bn by 2022. The team is being on beer delivery technology for their organically grown CBD and innovation through first-to-market, functional CBG and CBN formulations to set their brand apart. Their Australian Cold Pressed Hemp Seed Oil and US grown and made, Sigma N-Osmo CBD have already made it into the hands of the Kardashian’s. Both products featured in the most recent poosh.com Travel Mailer which landed Hemple in social media feeds of Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Selma Blair, Shanina Shaik and Behati Prinsloo. As Facebook and Instagram continue to disallow ingestible hemp foods and CBD advertising, the founders see this style of organic social media endorsement as key to reaching their millennial consumer - a fast growing segment of the hemp CBD market. Brightfield Group dubs the 26-35 year old CBD user group as “stressed out millennials”. This group accounts for 38.2% of the total US CBD market. More than half the members of this segment have a household income of US $50,000+ and are looking to relieve the pressures and stresses of their busy young professional lives, turning to hemp CBD to relieve a range of emotional health issues, most prominently: anxiety, depression and insomnia. Co-Founder, Georgia Branch, says, “There’s over 5600 CBD tincture brands in the USA. We’re breaking away from the commoditised products which dominate the market. Our approach is to differentiate with a premi- um brand position that’s backed up by truly innovative, effective products targeted towards the needs of our customer. Each of our products will have a specific functional benefit - from stress management (like our first CBD release, Sigma) to sleep.” Turland continues, “We’re one of few companies in the US using nano-technology to improve the absorp- tion rate of cannabinoids. Similarly to vitamins, only 10-30% of most CBD edibles and tinctures are absorbed by the body. The technology used in our N-Osmo cannabinoid range increases absorption to over 90%. Ulti- mately, this means beer value for money for the customer.” Value for money maers, as Brightfield Group shows 41.3% of this group are taking some form of CBD to manage everyday pressures, 5-7 days per week. On 29 July in the US, Hemple will launch with Fleur Marche, dubbed the “Sephora of CBD”. In Australia, Hemple’s range of hemp foods products are listed in over 350 health and specialty stores including Flan- nery’s and Healthy Life.

Keep up your fluid intake and stay hydrated because all the fluid in your body will rush to the burn site.”   Some of the symptoms to look for include: ·        Discomfort ·        Burning, tingling or a painful sting ·        Swelling ·        Skin redness ·        Blisters   Natural henna, as opposed to black henna, does not contain PPD and is made of plant-based ingredients. It is never black and has a more orange colour with a red or brown tint.   House Call Doctor is Queensland’s largest after-hours healthcare provider, operating from Cairns to the Tweed.   Images sourced online showing scarring from black henna tattoos can be viewed here.  OXAIR’S PSA EQUIPMENT BREATHES NEW LIFE INTO INDIAN HOSPITAL 2019-07-08T13:23:48Z oxair-s-psa-equipment-breathes-new-life-into-indian-hospital Oxair Gas Systems, a global specialist supplying advanced medical equipment, was called in by a hospital in the Bijapur district of the bustling Indian state of Karnataka to transform its oxygen supply set-up, after ventilators supporting patients’ breathing had been idle for almost two years. Piping issues were the cause of the problem for Choudhary Hospital, which was also reliant on outsourcing oxygen cylinders. Oxair’s India agent Agastya restored the pipes to bring the ventilators back into operation before installing an Oxair Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) system to ensure a permanent supply of oxygen. More and more medical facilities in India are installing PSA equipment to ensure cost-effective supplies of the life-saving gas rather than being at the mercy of deliveries of traditional cylinders, which can be affected by poor transport connectivity and extreme weather events. To help eliminate possible future interruptions to its oxygen supply chain and reduce the requirement for staff to manhandle cylinders, the multi-specialty hospital switched to a PSA system from Oxair to guarantee constant, high purity oxygen on tap, with immediate back-up when needed. Oxair is making inroads in what is one of the world’s major healthcare markets, convincing many hospitals in India to discard the conventional method of importing oxygen cylinders in favour of an automated system. PSA delivery equipment offers a sustainable alternative directly where it’s needed with constant purity of up to 93-94%. PSA is a unique process that separates oxygen from compressed air. The gas is then conditioned and filtered before being stored in a buffer tank to be piped directly to the end user on demand or to refill cylinders already in circulation.  General Surgeon, Dr Ravikumar K Choudhary, who founded Choudhary hospital in 2005, said: “The PSA system from Oxair is supporting eight patients through two ventilators. We can now release staff from the burden of shifting cylinders around and offer better patient care with a permanent flow of high-quality oxygen directly where it’s needed.” Choudhary is following in the footsteps of other hospitals in the Indian medical fraternity that have realised the benefits of having their own source of oxygen, rather than counting on outside sources and the handling of cylinders.  Oxair’s PSA units are quality medical devices designed to last and deliver consistent, high purity oxygen to hospitals and healthcare facilities in even the remotest locations around the globe. As well as India, hospitals worldwide are benefiting from Oxair’s PSA units which have also been installed in Africa, the Philippines, Tonga, and Indonesia to provide a reliable and sustainable supply of oxygen.

This surely is an indication how vital a beautiful and healthy smile is to someone’s personality. Dentist for Chickens offers professional Teeth Whitening Newcastle for the best results.  Dentist for Chickens is a leading Dentist Newcastle employing latest teeth whitening technology to help its clients enjoy a brighter looking and healthier smile. They offer comprehensive cosmetic dentistry services at all their 3 branches in Newcastle, which are at SWANSEA, EDGEWORTH and RAYMOND TERRACE. These is a constant debate among consumers whether over-the-counter teeth whitening kits are better or the in-office professional services offered by dentists. Majority of the customers reach out to a tooth whitening home kit for several reasons. It is easy to access, cheap, easy to use, makes the teeth visibly brighter and does not consume much time. But when seen from a medical perspective, regular use of home kits may cause more damage than any good to one’s teeth. When the same question was posted to the leading dental surgeon at Dentist for Chickens, he said, “Home kits can remove minor stains and teeth discoloration. But for tougher stains and more severe discoloration, we strongly recommend professional teeth whitening as it is safer, offers better results and long lasting.” Being in the dentist chair is always a better and safer option than using an over-the-counter teeth whitening kit. Cosmetic Dentist Newcastle will use a highly concentrated formula and create customised moulds for each patient. Thus, the whitening results are much better.

Being an avid reader, when I was younger, I would pick up any magazine that was bought home – usually with a gorgeous model on the front, whose body type was the polar opposite to mine. I know now that I will never, and should never, want to have that because that’s not me. But as a teenager I was always conscious of how that was deemed beautiful – and other body types were not.   “At 29 years old, I have grown up to realize that although I won’t have the figure of a Victoria Secret model – I can aim to be fit and healthy. I used to do sports at school and now I go to the gym 1-3 times a week. However, eating well and doing things like taking the stairs instead of the lift are things that I do every day to try keep in shape.   “After some not so deep reflection it has occurred to me that weekends are my hurdle. I love trying new places to eat, which comes with enjoying a few glasses of wine or beer. It’s a treat and I love it. It turns out I’m a big advocate for justifying the weekend binge with the week-day health food focus.   “I started taking Calocurb initially to see if it would help with my binge cravings over the weekend, after a friend who was taking it mentioned it to me. About half a day after taking my first capsule (I take it in the mornings), I felt that I didn’t feel as eager to eat lunch when I usually did (12.30-1.00pm). I also felt the same around dinner, which meant I ended up with a much smaller portion than usual. Pleased at this stage, I decided to keep it up.   “After a week of taking it and each day being pleasantly surprised at how little I craved my meals or snacks – the test of the weekend was upon me. At meal times I felt that I didn’t need to dig into that extra order of fries for the table or order a smoothie with my brunch meal. I was quite content with my salad, or small main – with no added extras afterwards. I was really happy that I still got to go out and enjoy all the things I love, but had cut back on the meals and treats that used to make me regret my eating decisions on a Sunday. As simple as it does sound – I actually feel in control of my eating habits a lot more while taking Calocurb.   “I feel comfortable in my own skin but knowing that I can have that extra bit of willpower when I do want to feel better and loose a bit of weight that I can personally tell has crept back on, is really important for me. I don’t do extreme diets, but I use Calocurb to help maintain my weight, so I can keep on doing the things I love and not feel so constricted by eating plans and calorie counting. I’m really happy with the way Calocurb has worked for me and the fact that I can adjust it around my lifestyle is absolutely ideal.” Rachel is a Marketing Manager in Auckland, New Zealand, and for more information on appetite suppressants NZ, weight loss pills, intermittent fasting and Calocurb NZ reviews please go to www.calocurb.co.nz . Making Sense Of The Child Dental Benefits Schedule 2019-06-21T01:48:11Z making-sense-of-the-child-dental-benefits-schedule You may have seen some Newcastle dentists recently advertise up to $1000 in free dental treatments for children.  It’s part of an initiative by the Australian Government that is delivered through Medicare called the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS). The scheme is aimed at families who are already receiving other benefits, such as Family Tax Benefit A payments. At the Good Dentist, we believe this scheme is vitally important to ensure that children attend the dentist regularly. However, not all dentists provide services under the scheme so make sure you check with the dentist before you book your appointment. Who is eligible? There are about 3 million children in Australia that are eligible under the CDBS. The schedule covers part or the full cost of some dental services for children aged 2 to 17 years old that are eligible for Medicare. You or your child must also receive at least one of the following benefits for at least 1 day of the calendar year: Family Tax Benefit Part A Parenting Payment Double Orphan Pension ABSTUDY Carer Payment Disability Support Pension Special Benefit Youth Allowance Or receive assistance under: the Veterans Children Education Scheme the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act Education and Training Scheme If you are not sure whether your child is eligible, just get in contact with us on 4929 6007 and we can reach out to Medicare to confirm this for you and make your child a suitable appointment that suits your schedule. Accessing dental services under the Schedule It's best before we proceed with the treatment that you ask any questions you have about treatment costs or any restrictions on the dental items. When the treatment has been completed on the day, our receptionist will process your claim through Medicare, stress and hassle free. Dental services available at The Good Dentist that are covered by Medicare under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule include: Examinations X-Rays Cleaning Fissure sealing Fillings Root Canal Therapy Teeth extractions Visit the Australian Government’s Human Services website for more information on the Child Dental Benefits Schedule. Early detection of skin cancer: Artificial Intelligence can help to save lives 2019-06-13T03:57:25Z early-detection-of-skin-cancer-artificial-intelligence-can-help-to-save-lives Digitisation has become an indispensable part of medicine. Nowadays, in certain areas Artificial Intelligence (AI) can support doctors with the same precision as an expert in their respective medical field. With the bodystudio ATBM master, FotoFinder Systems GmbH is now introducing an imaging system that enables physicians to take a new approach to the digital diagnosis of skin cancer. It delivers results in a matter of seconds and can significantly reduce the need for biopsies and excisions. Since 2013, FotoFinder has been focusing on earliest skin cancer diagnosis through Automated Total Body Mapping (ATBM) for fully automated photo documentation of the entire skin surface. Now, the company goes one step further with the new bodystudio ATBM master. Total Body Dermoscopy is the name of the method by which the entire skin surface is photographed with a special camera and flash system, without any reflections and with super-high resolution. This results in extremely clear clinical images that allow the physician to zoom into the full body photo to such an extent that the microscopic structure of a mole is already visible in the overview image. The doctor receives visual support from the fully automatic Bodyscan software, which quickly identifies the existing skin lesions in the whole body image and arranges them according to their relevance. In this way, the physician can quickly “scan” the moles visually without having to examine each one individually using a dermatoscope. Only the few moles that are atypical or suspicious are analysed with the digital dermatoscope. This leads to considerable time savings and enables the detection of even the smallest abnormalities. The waiting time for a diagnosis and thus patient uncertainty and anxiety are considerably reduced. In addition, this method reduces the sometimes painful excision of one or more tissue samples. “The future of skin cancer diagnostics lies in innovative, intelligent, time-saving solutions,” explains Kathrin Niemela, member of the FotoFinder management board. “Modern analysis methods are largely digital and support physicians in finding abnormalities in many ways.” Contrary to widespread opinion, most melanomas do not develop from an existing mole, but appear as new spots, "de novo", on apparently healthy skin. In most cases, the disease begins with a barely perceptible spot, often just 1 millimetre in size, which can already contain a malignant cell population of thousands. It is precisely these extremely small lesions that are often overlooked in a classic dermatological examination. Whole-body cartography with the new master technology visualises the moles of a patient in such a way that new lesions become visible at a glance. The physician is supported in the analysis and risk assessment of skin lesions by the expert software Moleanalyzer pro, which works with a powerful AI-based deep learning algorithm. According to a clinical study carried out by the Department of Dermatology at Heidelberg University Hospital, Artificial Intelligence came up with more accurate diagnostic results than the medical specialists involved in the study – and it takes the system less than a second each time.* For patients, the use of Automated Total Body Mapping in combination with AI means greater reliability in the earliest detection of skin cancer. “Compared to the more intuitive approach of a physician, who also includes patient history or genetic predisposition in the diagnosis, the algorithm is absolutely objective in its analysis”, explains Kathrin Niemela from FotoFinder. “The larger, better and more unique the data basis is, the more intelligent the system becomes in a short period of time, thanks to continuous training. Nevertheless, Artificial Intelligence cannot replace human intelligence and experience in the detection of skin cancer: In the end, the doctor decides what to do." FotoFinder bodystudio ATBM master is versatile: In addition to the platform for skin cancer diagnostics, the device offers optional modules for hair diagnostics, aesthetics as well as for the management of psoriasis patients using the PASIscan. System Launch Kathrin Niemela, member of the FotoFinder management board, will demonstrate FotoFinder bodystudio ATBM master at the “24th World Congress of Dermatology” from 10th to 15th June 2019 at booth no. G59 (Gate2) and will be happy to answer questions. Additional information about the imaging system can be found here: www.fotofinder.de
