About Dietitian / Nutrition ServiceAbout

Sydney Dental Hospital offers a special oral health nutrition service for patients.

A healthy diet is very important for general and dental health. Dental problems may be partly caused by food choices and eating habits. Sometimes dental treatment can affect your ability to eat a wide range of foods.

The Dietitian can help you to identify dietary risks and provide the most up to date information about good nutrition for health. Advice will be tailored to meet your needs.
