Kathleen Colton- Biological Hygienist
We are pleased to announce that Kathleen Colton (Kathy), is the first Hygienist in Australia to be trained and certified in the comprehensive application of Biological Hygiene. This year, Kathy successfully completed the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) Biological Dental Hygiene Accreditation program.
The 10-unit course has been created specifically for dental hygienists to learn about the essential connections between oral health and overall health. It establishes Kathy at the forefront of modern dentistry and demonstrates her commitment to furthering her knowledge of dental hygiene’s undeniable role in systemic health. Patients can now feel in good hands when discussing their oral health concerns with Kathy.
Completing this course has enabled Kathy to develop an awareness of the materials used in dentistry and ways to help protect our patients. Through the knowledge of mitigating exposure to mercury from amalgam fillings, including IAOMT’s Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART), Kathy has developed a recognition of holistic approaches to assist patients in improving their oral and overall health. Kathy currently works in our Moonee Ponds rooms, and you can make an appointment with her by phoning 03 84004104 or booking online at www.smileinstyle.com.au
