Wednesday 17th April @ 7pm, Dr Surina Sehgal & Heather Richards discuss the link between diet, teeth and health

The Mouth Body Connection & The Oral Microbiome

Beyond your annual check-up visits to the dentist, how much thought do you give to oral health and how it impacts on your general health? What is healthy for our mouth impacts our whole being. The mouth-body connections are so important yet they are only recently being researched and discussed.

Surina will discuss what the health of your mouth says about your general health and the impact of food on tooth decay, jaw development and crooked teeth and of course the oral microbiome.

Surina has created a delicious healthy recipe for Sano. You will be treated to a supper of Surina's Mixed Bean Mexican Stew with Guacamole, Rice and Quinoa Bowl.

This is an exciting time for social prescribing. The Government’s Loneliness Strategy released last year stated that it anticipated that there will be a link worker in very GP practice by 2023. The NHS Long Term Plan has just been released which clarifies the NHS commitment to social prescribing and states that the NHS will recruit 1000 link workers this year with the aim of 900k people supported by social prescribing by 2023.
