It also describes trends in oral health of Australian children between 1989 and 2007. The most recent findings are drawn from the 2007 Child Dental Health Survey (CDHS) which analysed the data of 110,014 children aged 4 to 15 from most states and territories. The longer term trends highlight results for children aged 6 and 12 as these are the standard age groups for reporting on dental caries experience in the deciduous and permanent teeth respectively.

Publisher: Parkville, Vic. Centre for Community Child Health 1999Description: 93 p.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: First Three Years Project - Stage ISummary: There is currently an increasing international awareness of the importance of the early years of childhood in determining longer term outcomes for children. A growing body of evidence suggests that behaviour problems, success at school, and mental and physical health are greatly influenced by the care and experiences of early childhood. Recent neurological research challenges long held assumptions that brain development and structure are solely genetically determined. It provides evidence that the actual structure of the brain is greatly influenced by environmental factors throughout pregnancy and then after birth, particularly in the first three years of life. Early experiences of nurturing care and stimulation have a positive effect on the wiring of the brain, which in turn positively influences development, ability to learn and the capacity to regulate emotions. Conversely, negative early experiences can have a detrimental effect on brain development and subsequently compromise development, learning and regulation of emotion (Shore 1998). These findings have major implications for family and children’s services, suggesting that the greatest benefits will be achieved through prevention and early intervention in the early years of life, supported by appropriate interventions through later developmental stages. In response to this emerging evidence, a group of Australian academics, practitioners and government officials established the National Initiative for the Early Years (NIFTEY) in early 1999. NIFTEY’s objectives are to educate the general public about the importance of the first three years of life and the need for action to provide all children with the best possible early life, and to achieve better integration of policies and programs for young children across government and society.

Report of the National Advisory Council on Dental Health /

by National Advisory Council on Dental Health.

Publisher: [Canberra, A.C.T.?] National Advisory Council on Dental Health 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 23 February 2012 Chair: Ms Mary MurnaneSummary: The Council has given careful consideration to the issues facing Australians in accessing appropriate and timely dental care and has developed options to improve dental health. Since providing the Interim Report, the Council has further developed the options and indicative costings. As a good oral health foundation in childhood is the key determinant of oral health throughout life, the Council commends the importance of a universal option for children. However, given the existing fiscal environment, the Council has included scaled down options for children, and adult options that are focused mainly on the most economically disadvantaged. The Council agrees that the long-term goal for dental health in Australia should be a system that allows universal access to dental care. However, any of the four options in the report will entail preparatory work involving legislation and, most likely, COAG consideration. Therefore, the Council has provided, as a first step, forerunner measures that could be implemented while preparatory work is being advanced.Availability: (1)
