Object statement
Pamphlet, 'The ABC of Dental Health', paper, published by the Division of Dental Services, New South Wales Department of Public Health, Sydney, New South Wales, printed by V.C.N Blight, Government Printer, New South Wales, Australia, 1970
Since the late nineteenth century, government and community organisations have produced pamphlets to promote health. Pamphlets available in health and community centres, hospitals and doctors' surgeries, alert the general public to local health services, provide practical information about healthy behaviours, and convey other important health-related messages.

This booklet was one of many produced by the New South Wales Department of Health that represents a wide range of advice booklets issued free and used by the general public.

The Powerhouse Museum has a growing collection of material that documents the history of public health and health education in Australia. By examining the nature of advice given in these booklets, it is possible to perceive some of the health and social concerns that prevailed during this period of Australia's history.

Written by Erika Dicker
Assistant Curator, 2007.
The booklet was made by the Division of Dental Services, New South Wales Department of Health in 1970.
The recollection of the donor is that the booklet must have been brought home by her husband. At the time of its publication (1960s -1970s), he had an administrative position in the New South Wales Department of Welfare.

Description
Pamphlet, 'The ABC of Dental Health', paper, published by the Division of Dental Services, New South Wales Department of Public Health, Sydney, New South Wales, printed by V.C.N Blight, Government Printer, New South Wales, Australia, 1970

A 4 page pamphlet titled 'ABC of dental health'. The pamphlet contains information about how to look after children's teeth and prevent tooth decay. The booklet has a light blue cover with black text. There is the image of a young boy smiling on the front cover. It includes diagrams and facts about teeth and photos of teeth being brushed.

While some of the language in this pamphlet is addressed to children ('At play time or after school, when you are hungry, it is best to have a glass of milk and a piece of fruit'), its content is targeted more at parents. It offers other dietary advice as well as advising children to brush and floss daily and 'consult your dentist' every six months and 'ask him about the benefits of fluorides', a rather adult activity.
