Improving oral health - local government action guide
local government action guide - improving oral health opens in new browser window

This action guide has been developed in partnership between Dental Health Services Victoria and the Department of Health & Human Services to help local government improve oral health.

Local government plays an important role in supporting the objectives of the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008. Councils can make an impact on their residents' oral health by helping to create environments that promote oral health.

This guide outlines a range of evidence-informed actions that councils can consider when preparing their Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plans, Municipal Early Years Plans and other strategies.

The proposed actions are consistent with the Victorian Public Health and Wellbeing Plan (VPHWP) 2015-2019; that identifies improving oral health as one of the key issues related to healthier eating and active living*.
